We are looking to recruit a full time Counsellor, who is passionate about supporting young people with emotional and mental health issues, to join our dedicated team in the East Riding.
You must be qualified to NVQ L5 or above in Counselling or Psychotherapy and be accredited with BACP or UK CP.
The post holder will provide counselling support for children within schools and children’s centres in the Haltemprice and Goole area of the East Riding. We are also happy to consider job share applications.
You will receive dedicated clinical supervision, as well as supervision and wellbeing support from your manager, to enable you to work at your best. You will be working within a team and on your own initiative to support children and young people.
There is a range of comprehensive training available to support you in your role to develop your skills and practice in order to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.
‘You can, I can, We can’
We have created a bespoke practice model that reflects and connects our vision, our value base and our behaviour as one East Riding of Yorkshire approach to working with children, young people and their families, which is nurtured and grown from within East Riding of Yorkshire CYPSSS and owned by our workforce.
We remain committed to Signs of Safety as a practice framework, but this will be set within a much wider, values based, model of practice that clearly connects Signs of Safety much more clearly with the East Riding value base, and our overall approach to making and sustaining relationships with children, families and communities.
Without a well embedded model, there is nothing to centre our practice on to ensure that, while the work may be different, all our teams are grounded in the same values, beliefs, theories and approaches. Having a well developed practice model helps to create a common language for the service and enables everyone to understand how we go about doing the right things, in the right way and for the right reasons for children and their families.
