Newham Bereavement Service

Clinical Placement Opportunities

The Newham Bereavement Service is a new service being offered to residents of Newham. The offerings include counselling, groups, complementary therapy and advice. The service is being delivered by Mind in Tower Hamlets and Newham.

We are looking for placement counsellors to see up to three clients a week. Most of the sessions will be held during the day, although there will be one evening session a week. The sessions are free to the client.

Clients are offered six sessions, but this can be extended if there is clinical need.

You will receive fortnightly clinical supervision in a group (maximum three participants).

You should be in at least the second year of one of these courses:

Dip/Bachelors/PG Dip/MSc/MA/Doctorate in Counselling/Psychotherapy or Counselling Psychology.

You should have a minimum of 30 hours of client one to one contact counselling experience with adequate supervision.

We are located at 655 Barking Road, London E13 9EX.
