Young People’s Counsellor (12-25)

Young People’s Counsellor (12-25)
22.5 hours per week
£26,400 p/a pro-rata

The Young People’s counselling service provides free access to counselling support for young people who are a resident of York and not studying at the University.  Following an initial first contact appointment, individuals are offered access to 6 once weekly counselling sessions. The service works with young people aged 12-25 and is divided in to two parts: 12-15 and 16-25.  

The service benefits young people through offering an impartial and confidential space to talk to a trained person about anything that is causing them distress and help them work towards solutions that are right for them. This may include making sense of their own thoughts, learning new ways of dealing with situations or helping them identify what wider support they need around them.

York Mind works with young people who have a high level of need, and some cases may be complex, with multi agency involvement, (for example, social workers, psychiatrists, specialist drug and alcohol services). The role will involve working as a counsellor with clients from a range of socio-economic backgrounds and who are experiencing a diverse range of challenges. You will therefore need to feel confident in working with this client group and holding a caseload where there may be varying degrees of risk.
