Mandala has been delivering therapy to children and support for families for over 12 years.
We are looking to recruit Therapists and Counsellors living in Dorset, Somerset and Devon, and will consider applications from nearby areas.
Mandala staff work right across the Southwest and last year we offered help to over 100 children and families.
We work closely with the Barnardo’s Adoption Service in the South West and deliver a large number of packages of therapeutic support to Adoptive Families funded by the Adoption Support Fund.
Therapists and Counsellors in our team are home based.
All travels expenses are paid. In addition, staff are paid to attend their regular clinical supervision sessions and to join our Mandala team meetings.
Other learning and development opportunities are available.
Our therapeutic team is led and supervised by a Child Psychotherapist.
All our therapists and counsellors are qualified and experienced to work with children using creative arts and play and we are recruiting adult counsellors to work directly with parents and carers.
When working with children we take a systemic approach and work closely with parents, carers and key professionals.
Our therapeutic model is gentle, nurturing and creative, using play and creative arts to support the process.
We offer a combination of individual, dyadic or family therapy as well as adult counselling for parents and carers.
