Counsellors or Psychosexual Therapists

Relate Worcestershire has vacancies for experienced, qualified practitioners to deliver relationship counselling or psychosexual therapy on a sessional basis. We are interested in talking to qualified counsellors who may have previously worked for Relate or trained elsewhere.
Experienced counsellors can begin to work for Relate without additional training if their qualifications meet the Relate Assessment of Prior Experience & Learning (APEL) requirements. For accepted APEL training, please see our information documents below: 

We would also very much like to hear from counsellors qualified to deliver psychosexual therapy.

You will be one of a team of Relationship Practitioners that work on a regular basis to deliver appointments across Worcestershire. We are looking for counsellors to offer a minimum of 4 hours per week, preferably more.

  • A range of free tailored CPD courses run specifically for our counsellors

  • Full professional indemnity cover

More about the role:

  • Salary is dependent upon experience
