LGBT Volunteer Counsellor – Supporting U18’s

Location: London: currently working online
Closing Date: 14th Jul 2022

Employment Type: Volunteer

Opportunity for qualified or qualifying LGBT+ youth therapists in our busy individual therapy service supporting LGBTQ+ young people aged 14+ around their mental health and life difficulties.

Our U18s are often referred by a parent or CAMHS worker when they need therapeutic support beyond the capacity of our Youth Out East young people’s service.  The work can be challenging and changeable, but always rewarding.  Offering a young person space to explore their identity alongside any wider life experiences with UPR is hugely validating and empowering for our young community, allowing them to feel seen, heard, understood, validated and celebrated in our gender and sexual identity.

You will be supported in joining our team with an extensive induction, clear policies, guided practice and quality supervision. We also have an annual CPD programme offering training opportunities to enhance and develop your knowledge around key presenting issues for our community.

Our next induction to the team is scheduled for 9th, 12th & 14th July. If you are interested in applying for a position in our team, please email elop at: [email protected] to request an application pack. This will have all the details you need including the supervision options available.

We ask you to make a commitment of  3 client hours per week, plus fortnightly clinical supervision for 2.5hrs – 2 year minimum commitment. Please note: to support young people, your client hours should be on a Saturday or after usual school hours.  We are continuing to work remotely until further notice.
