We are recruiting counsellors!


If you have a professional qualification in counselling to diploma level, a good understanding of the psychodynamic approach and are an accredited member of BACP, BPC. NCS or equivalent body we want to hear from you. See further details on our website by clicking on Apply Now.

We are experiencing increasing demand for both our Open-Ended Adult Counselling Service which is psychodynamic and our Time Limited Adult Counselling Service offering brief focused counselling over a 12-week model. As a result, we are looking to increase the number of experienced counsellors working within these services.

Due to Covid we are currently offering the majority of our counselling online via telephone and video call using Teams, you need to be able to offer counselling remotely and have sufficient IT skills to be comfortable working in a paperless manner. We will continue to offer a remote counselling service post pandemic, as well as face to face counselling in our venues across the County, therefore we are recruiting locally and nationally.                                                                                                 

Ours is a long-established and highly respected service where you will be supported in your role through regular line management, clinical management and access to professional training and development.

We offer two different types of contract and we are recruiting for both staff and bank counsellors locally and nationwide. 

Staff Counsellor Contract: Staff counsellors are employed on a permanent variable hours contract paid at £18.00 per session plus £2.17 per hour holiday entitlement totalling £20.17 per hour. Fortnightly Clinical Supervision is provided at our Stroud Venue or remotely. You need to be available for a minimum of 6 clients per week.

Bank Staff Counsellor Contract: Bank Staff Counsellors are employed on a zero hours contract at £23 per session plus £2.78 per hour holiday entitlement totalling £25.78 per hour – which includes a contribution toward the cost of your clinical supervision and a 3-way clinical agreement will need to be in place with your external supervisor. Ideally you will offer 6 client sessions per week.

We are seeking to fill these roles with qualified, enthusiastic and motivated individuals committed to providing high quality counselling within a professional community of counsellors. You will need to have a sound professional counselling training to diploma level and a good understanding of the psychodynamic approach. You will also have achieved BACP, BPC Accreditation or be an NCS Accredited Professional Registrant (or equivalent professional accreditation). 

Applications are by completion of an application form available to download by clicking on Apply Now,  along with further details of the role, job description and person specification.
