GCS provides high quality counselling at affordable cost to the people of Gloucestershire and its surrounds. Each year, we provide over 12,000 counselling sessions to children, families and adults. The vast majority of those accessing our services are subsidised and without GCS wouldn’t be able to access counselling services.

We also hold contracts to provide fully funded counselling to those who have experienced historic sexual or domestic violence as well as those whose mental health has been impacted by COVID. As a result of this we are reaching those in Gloucestershire who have often experienced complex trauma and the opportunity for them to engage and be supported in accessing our services is life-changing.

GCS is a BACP accredited counselling service and employs more than 60 counsellors and clinical supervisors. Our usual working hours are Monday – Friday with sessions starting throughout the day from 8am – 8pm. No minimum case load required.

As demand continues to grow for those that are accessing our services, we are looking to continue to grow our team of counsellors. We are looking to recruit counsellors / psychotherapists who have a strong comprehension and understanding of safeguarding, able to confidently work with identifying and managing clinical risk and have experience and / or training in sexual violence and domestic violence.
