JOIN OUR TEAM!!
Children and Young People's Counsellors
We are currently inviting applications for student counsellors/psychotherapy trainees and qualified honorary counsellors/psychotherapists to join our counselling team. The Saying Goodbye Project is part of Kingston Bereavement Service, which provides up to ten sessions of free one to one counselling to children and young people who have been bereaved.
Mandatory induction training on bereavement counselling will be provided. There will also be ongoing CPD training opportunities, on topics such as effective short-term therapy, working with bereaved adolescents and systemic perspectives for supporting families through a bereavement.
Kingston Bereavement Service is primarily a face-to-face service, as we feel this provides the most enabling support to the local community. Group supervision for counsellors is provided fortnightly.
This is an excellent opportunity to develop skills within a brief therapy framework and to expand experience of working with loss and bereavement.
We are committed to diversity and inclusion and welcome applications from all. We particularly welcome applications from diverse cultural, ethnic, disabled and LGBTQIA+ communities. Please click here to read more, and here to access the application form.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of Kingston Bereavement Service, its financial health and developing its aims and objectives in line with the governing document and legal and regulatory guidelines. We are particularly looking for Trustees with fundraising or clinical experience, especially with children and young people. Please click here to read more and find out how to apply.
