Volunteer Counsellor

Are you a counsellor in the final year of your Diploma course or a recently qualified counsellor who wants to support their accreditation by counselling young people in an agency setting?

Are you are interested in working with young people?

Join our in-house counselling team to offer short term interventions to young people who might be accessing a counselling service for the first time.

Volunteer with our counselling service

The Mix is the UK’s free confidential support service, providing essential support for young people under 25 who need help and don’t know where to turn.

We offer free, in-house telephone counselling to young people aged 10-25 years. From September 2017 we will also be offering Webchat counselling for children and young people aged 10-18 years. It’s an exciting time to get involved, learn telephone and webchat counselling skills, receive free supervision and offer short term interventions to young people who might be accessing a counselling service for the first time.

If you want to make a difference to young people’s lives, we want to hear from you! Please note this is a volunteering opportunity and we would ideally need a commitment of one year.
