Qualified Counsellor Volunteer Placement

We greatly value our Team of qualified volunteer counsellors. If you would like to apply to join us, please send your CV with a covering email to Chloe West, Counselling Manager at


Experience/skills required: Applicants need to be empathic, committed, qualified counsellors or psychotherapists.  CCS’s own training model is psychodynamic, so we particularly welcome external applications from qualified counsellors with similar training backgrounds.  We do sometimes accept applications from qualified counsellors trained in other modalities, so long as you have experience and understanding of, and are sympathetic towards, a psychodynamic approach.

Role: We are currently offering places to additional qualified counsellors, to work with at least three CCS clients (time-limited, or open-ended, up to three years, as appropriate) in our valued Team of 30-40 qualified counsellors.

When/How long?: We offer client appointments Monday-Friday from 09:00 to 19:00hrs.  You are welcome to offer client sessions to suit your personal schedule. You will also be required to attend a fortnightly Qualified Counsellor Supervision Group (there will be several, at different times and on different days). There is no minimum/maximum time limit for counsellor placements: they are reviewed annually.

Where: Central Chichester.


  • This is an ideal opportunity to extend your professional knowledge and experience, and to obtain the additional clinical practice hours required for further professional development.
  • We provide free, in-house fortnightly group supervision (up to five qualified counsellors in a group).
  • We provide a contribution towards individual travel costs, when you are seeing three clients.
