Taking up a placement with us as a Volunteer Counsellor you will be offered the opportunity to primarily work with adults, although there may be occasions that you may have the opportunity to work with young people (aged 14 years plus).
We will support you throughout your time with us, offering help and advice where needed, and providing you with training and other information that you can apply to your professional and personal development.
We have experience of supporting Volunteers from a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds.
Whilst volunteering, you will be asked to see a minimum of 3 clients per week and, during your induction, you will be allocated a venue. We will agree a day and times for your placement with you before you begin your placement.
We will strive to fit your placement around your commitments but restrictions might apply – depending on room availability and service delivery needs.
We offer monthly supervision (placement related) in addition to Volunteer Counsellors own personal supervision. You are required to source your own supervision; there may be opportunities to purchase this through The Kaleidoscope Plus Group.
In order to work as a Volunteer Counsellor you are required to attend all forms of supervision, this is to ensure that The Kaleidoscope Plus Group maintains high standards of service.
There will also be opportunities for group supervision providing mutual support and learning from others.
