Volunteer counsellors needed at Norwich, Dereham and King's Lynn branches of 4Cs

Demand for high quality, affordable counselling at the at all branches branch of Christian charity 4Cs has continued to grow, resulting in an urgent need for more people to join the team.

4Cs provides quality counselling for people in our communities who may otherwise not be able to access counselling due to financial constraints. They currently see individuals and couples aged 18+ and ask only for donations from our clients towards the service – at rates which are affordable for the individual – suggesting a donation which can be as little as £5 per session.  

The criteria for volunteering as a counsellor for 4Cs are:

  • Qualified to at least diploma level 4.
  • Trained by an establishment working within BACP, ACC or UKCP regulations.
  • Accredited to BACP, ACC or UKCP or eligible and willing to work towards accreditation
  • Willing to see a minimum two-three clients per week as a general rule
  • Able to sign up to our Statement of Ethos and Value
Volunteer counsellors will receive a contribution towards individual supervision, group supervision, travel expenses, regular CPD training at 4Cs expense.
We can also provide placements for students on a level 4 training course provided that the training establishment is registered with BACP, ACC or UKCP.

  • be on a level 4 diploma or degree course at a training establishment registered with BACP, UKCP or ACC.

  • complete an ‘application for placement’ form
