Volunteer Counselling Placements

At AYCP, we understand the journey it takes to become a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
“Please join us! We are proud to offer student placements.”
We will support you throughout your entire time with us, offering help and advice where you need it.

Before applying to have a placement with us

A placement with us will involve working one-to-one with teens (13+ years old) and at times vulnerable adults, we will ask that you undertake a Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS) Check before starting with us. Also, applicant must commit to a year, have a GMail account to access Google Drive and have access to Zoom.

Though our therapists are trained in a number of counselling approaches, all therapists who join us should be trained, primarily, in one of the following schools of thought: integrative psychotherapy, person-centred counselling, psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy or couples counselling and/or psychosexual therapy. As much as we value other types of therapies, we restrict our counselling services to the types of therapy listed above.

Successful applicants will become part of a unique team of therapists, working with a diverse group of clients. We will engage via Zoom and so all volunteers/trainees are to be able to communicate via Zoom with clients and colleagues.


We offer both individual and group Supervision and always aim to do so at affordable rates.
