Counselling for Us

Listening Post welcomes applications from both qualified counsellors and supervisors and students seeking placements.  If you are a qualified counsellor please complete the Application Form in the Qualified Counsellor section.  If you are a Student Counsellor please complete the Application Form in the Student Counsellor section.

Qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Counselling at Listening Post as a volunteer qualified counsellor or psychotherapist can offer you a regular practice, in-house supervision, and the support and companionship of colleagues. Our qualified counsellors find a placement at Listening Post enables them to gain the post-qualification practice hours needed for accreditation, and our annual programme of seminars provide further professional development. Our counsellors are drawn from a range of counselling modalities.

We do ask that you be willing to commit to a minimum of two years counselling for us and would normally expect you to see three clients a week.

Student Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Listening Post offers placements to about fifteen students annually. Placements last for two years, at the end of which students may be invited to remain with Listening Post after qualification. In-house supervision (during working hours) is provided where possible, along with an annual programme of seminars which Listening Post students can attend at a reduced rate.

If you wish to be considered for a student placement, please submit an application form. Successful candidates will be invited to attend a selection day, where you will be interviewed and asked to conduct a role play.  It is unusual to be invited for interview if you are just at the outset of your Diploma training, and you are strongly encouraged to apply for a placement when you are nearing the end of the first year of Diploma training and have had some counselling practice.
