Working as a Volunteer Counsellor at Way In

Way In values its volunteers and the significant contribution that you make to the successful running of the agency. In fact, without our volunteers the agency would not exist. It is therefore very important that we provide you with all the support that you need to carry out your role effectively.

Qualifications and supervision

As a Way In counsellor, you will either be a trainee on the second year or above of a recognised Counselling or Psychotherapy Diploma course – usually Person-Centred or Integrative -- or else a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist.
All counsellors are required to abide by the BACP Code of Ethics, which includes engaging in regular individual supervision – 1.5 hours per month as a minimum.
