Get Involved

Thank You!

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for their valuable contribution. Your work can have a profoundly positive impact on those who are mentally unwell, vulnerable, isolated and in need of help. 

Do Something Amazing

We are always looking for volunteers who can give some time to improving the lives of those in need. You can volunteer as a counsellor, a befriender, as group facilitator or help with admin, finance and reception duties. People who access our services like having someone to chat to, help them fill out forms, get organised, go shopping and any number of day-to-day activities that they need assistance with.

Honorary Counselling Placements

We are particularly keen to encourage applicants who are Trainees or qualified Practitioners who are trained in the following approaches:

  • Counselling for Depression (CfD)
  • Brief Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IT)
  • Couple Therapy for Depression
  • CBT 
  • Arabic Speaking Counsellors

Counsellors who also have registered with the DBS Update service and can offer evening availability will also be at an advantage. We are looking for final year trainees in counselling, psychotherapy or psychology training who have completed a minimum of supervised clinical practice hours. 

The placement will offer therapeutic experience and the opportunity to learn to work in an integrative short term, solution focused service. It will consist of short term 1:1 counselling and the possibility of co-facilitation of psycho-educational groups as well as linking clients with other services.

Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind’s Talking Therapies Services are BACP Accredited. A commitment of 1 day a week is required with flexibility to offer evening slots.

Volunteers benefits include fortnightly group supervision with the placement being normally available for 2 years, with the possibility of extension depending on performance and service need.
