Full or Part time
As a traditional girls’ boarding school with a modern twist, we offer an enriching, caring and creative environment, where every student is challenged and supported in equal measure. Our dedicated team of staff provide outstanding pastoral care in a genuine home environment and we are currently looking for a School Counsellor to provide additional support within the School community.
In this interesting and rewarding role you will be joining our counselling team and working with students on a one-to-one and group basis to support their emotional needs and help them to deal with the difficulties that they may be facing. You will work in partnership with doctors and the School Health Centre, parents and also provide guidance for House staff to ensure that the best all round care is delivered for students. You will also support group therapy sessions, and you will have experience in this area.
You will need to have a good understanding of mental health in adolescents and ideally have experience of CBT. A background of working with young people (ideally girls/young women) is essential and you will have a recognised qualification in counselling or psychotherapy and be fully accredited with either UKCP/BACP or BPS.
