Visyon is a charity that supports the emotional health and wellbeing of children, young people and their families across East Cheshire, through the provision of a range of services, including one-to-one counselling, group work, mentoring, and family support work.

The post holder will work as part of the Visyon team, providing time-bound, outcome-focused therapeutic interventions to children and young people. The post holder will be a qualified counsellor and will also have experience of working with children under 11 using play and creative interventions to help them express themselves.

Visyon places a high value on governance and accountability. We work with often complex clients, meaning risk management and safeguarding are essential parts of our work. Working with Visyon requires flexibility, strong communication, organisational skills and working effectively with children and young people, and others who support them. The ability to support and manage client risk and know when referrals should be made onto other agencies is essential within this role.
