Experienced Counsellors

We are looking for qualified counsellors to join our therapeutic team.

Cruse Scotland provides a range of specialist support to bereaved people across Scotland.  Our counselling and listening volunteer team have a wide range of skills and expertise working with people to help them overcome obstacles to wellbeing and find ways forward through the challenges that life can bring when dealing with a bereavement.

Like so many support organisations, we are seeing an increasing demand of our services and we are looking for qualified counsellors to join our therapeutic team.  This is a unique opportunity to provide specialist intervention to support people to gain an insight and understanding into their grief.  We work within a time limited model of support and ask that all volunteers work with a minimum of two clients at any given time

We are looking for trained counsellors who are supportive and non-judgemental, proactive, motivated, and open to change and demonstrate an understanding of the importance and scope of confidentiality.  Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also essential.  You must be a registered member of COSCA or the BACP and hold a recognised Diploma in Counselling. 

We provide individual clinical supervision, with optional group supervision, frequent and varied CPD opportunities and management and administrative support from our local client teams.  Due to the pandemic, we are currently delivering our services by telephone and online but will begin to offer to face to face support again when public health advice allows.  We can offer training to those who are new to phone or online counselling
