Please send a covering letter and CV, to Emma Griffiths on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Covering letter should include:

· Details of why you want to join GCS as a Staff Counsellor.

· The skills, knowledge and relevant experience in and outside of counselling you would bring to GCS.

· Your availability for providing counselling.

· Your philosophy of counselling in light of the development of counselling locally and nationally.

Payments for counselling reflect the ‘charitable’ element of the work, but do include: high quality clinical supervision, use of a room, Professional Indemnity Insurance and regular client work. Payment also includes a holiday entitlement based on that of a full time employee.

Working in GCS does have advantages of collegiality and support, plus regular client work where the agency carries clinical responsibility. There is also an opportunity for involvement and other paid work in areas of GCS such as, in training, time-limited contract work or posts of responsibility.
