Qualified Volunteer Counsellors needed for Wiltshire Mind

Wiltshire Mind, the local mental health charity based in Melksham,  is currently seeking qualified counsellors who would like to volunteer for the charity and support people in the local community.   

 Wiltshire Mind has an established counselling service which operates between the hours of 9am and 3pm, Mondays to Wednesdays and also between 5pm and 8pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  The charity says, “We would ask that you offer three sessions of counselling per week either at the office in Melksham or in an office in Trowbridge.  You would need to have obtained at least a level 4 diploma in counselling or equivalent. 

 “In return for your support, Wiltshire Mind will provide 1.5 hours of supervision per month, 2 hours of free room hire per week and at least 15 hours of face-to-face CPD per year. 

 “This could be a perfect opportunity to build up hours towards accreditation at the same time as supporting a local charity in delivering a service to the local community.

“If you would be interested in applying for a role as a qualified volunteer counsellor, please email counselling@wiltshiremind. co.uk or call 01225 706532.

“We work to provide various support to the local community through 9 support groups, 1-1 counselling and mental health awareness training.  We also have a charity shop in Church Street, Melksham.  Wiltshire Mind is an unfunded charity, we are not funded by national Mind or by any statutory authorities in Wiltshire, therefore support local people with limited resources.”
