This is an exciting time for Changes Therapy service. Growing demand for therapy has resulted in longer wait times. Additional funding now allows us to expand our provision and support people to access therapy more quickly. We anticipate appointing several part time Counsellors and welcome applications from qualified therapists passionate about mental health, wellbeing, and community, with an appetite for teamwork. The successful candidate will provide 1-1 counselling within a short-term model, carry out counselling consultations, write referrals, reports and undertake administrative tasks relating to client work. They will play an active role as a member of the Changes team, contributing ideas and input to support the development of Changes wider services.
