Working With Us

Qualified Counsellors

WE ARE THRIVE are wanting to hear from any qualified Counsellors that have some spare hours and would like to work as part of our team.    There are many reasons why you may want to dedicate a few hours to our project but for us, it’s about giving time back to our community holistically, so if you are interested, please contact me on 07901 913625 or the Contact Page to chat through the opportunities.  We look forward to speak to you soon!

Counselling Placements

Eventually, WE ARE THRIVE hope to be able to offer trainee counsellors the space and client hours that may help them complete their placement.  I say working towards as we are in the realms of setting this organisation up and all that goes with it!  Please, if you’re interested, give us a call to discuss the possibilities and if we can’t help ourselves, we’d be happy to try and signpost organisations that may be able to help.

What we hope to offer is:

  • A well structured placement working to The BACP Ethical framework
  • Monthly group supervision – personal supervision would have to be organised separately
  • Career opportunities within WE ARE THRIVE
  • A commitment to providing equal opportunities for everyone.

What we ask of you:

  • One 4 hour block of counselling at any time from 9.30am-8.00pm to fit with our current schedule
  • We recruit for Volunteer Counsellors all year round, so you are able to start your placement at any time during the academic year.

To take up a clinical placement, you will need to be studying towards one of the following qualifications:

  • Diploma in Counselling (Level 4 or above)
  • Degree or Masters in Counselling, Counselling/Clinical Psychology, Psychotherapy or Art Therapy

Placements involve working around children, so we arrange for all of our Volunteer Counsellors to have enhanced disclosure checks of criminal records.

Call us today or complete the ‘Contact Us’ form and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible.

Complementary Therapy Placements

Unfortunately, we are unable to train or monitor complementary therapists.  There is such a wide spectrum of therapy available today that we couldn’t possibly keep up!  We are however, happy to talk through any of your plans should you think that you will have time available to offer WE ARE THRIVE.  Please get in touch by contacting us on 07901 913625 to chat further.  We look forward to hearing from you!
