Volunteer Counsellor Training

Volunteer Counsellors

The training we provide for Coordinators and Volunteer Counsellors covers bereavement, trauma and the specifics of fatal and serious road collisions. We only recruit those that have successfully completed our  40-hour training course. We have a duty of care to both our Volunteer Counsellors and our clients so we need to be sure our trainees are able to meet the demands of the work.

The role of a Volunteer Counsellor requires good counselling skills to provide holistic support across the client’s range of needs that may include grief and trauma work as well as the provision of information.

Training courses for new Volunteer Counsellors are held periodically and advertised on this website.

Although courses are only run periodically we welcome applications at any time as they will be kept on file until the next course is arranged.  If you wish to find out more about the training and when the next course is likely to be held please ring 01234 843345.
