Child and Family Service - COUNSELLOR

We are looking for a dynamic counsellor to join the shaping of this development.

The C&FS offers a counselling service to families, including adults, children and young people who are experiencing difficulties in family life. Our counsellors provide individual, specialist therapeutic intervention for individuals or multiples of the family unit.

We are able to offer appointments in our main premises in Stroud as well as appointments in our Cheltenham, Cirencester and Gloucester venues.

Group supervision is provided on a weekly basis on Monday from 9.30 to 11.00 in Alma House, Stroud.

VACANCIES FOR TRAINING SUPERVISORS

GCS currently has a number of vacancies for Training Supervisors on our Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.

Training Supervisors need to be from the psychoanalytical or psychodynamic traditions with substantial clinical and supervisory experience. As our Diploma is BPC-accredited, BPC registration or a commitment to achieve it is desirable.

We are particularly looking for supervisors to work with our September intake of diploma year 1 trainees. These roles would be especially suitable for supervisors with substantial experience who have an interest in helping the next generation of psychodynamic practitioners to develop their craft and to achieve their potential.

GCS trainees are supervised in small groups (usually of three trainees) for 90 minutes weekly, for 42 sessions a year (September to September). Supervision takes place at our Stroud premises.

In addition to supervising the casework of trainees according to psychodynamic principles, Training Supervisors play an important role in educating trainees, assessing their progress, familiarising them with work within an agency setting and modelling good practice.
