Phyllis Tuckwell is set to recruit student counsellors for a two year placement working with bereaved adults.
The Surrey-based charity will be holding a recruitment day next month for people to visit the hospice. The day will include a a meet and greet session, an overview of Phyllis Tuckwell and the services it offers, and a Q&A session. Applicants will then be invited to join in with some group work and the day will end with a short, informal interview.
There will also be an opportunity to meet one of Phyllis Tuckwell’s former students, who is now one of their qualified counselling volunteers, and those who wish to can also have a tour of the hospice. Placements will then be offered to the successful students.
Claire Tune, Lead Counsellor at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care, explains further: “We are proud to offer a very supportive learning environment within our team of experienced counsellors and we take our educative role very seriously. We offer our students ongoing support throughout their two-year training, regular supervision with a qualified supervisor (in line with BACP requirements), provide written feedback and reports as required, and offer all students the opportunity to attend any CPD training we may hold.”
Those who are offered a placement can initially expect to work with bereaved adults whose loved one was cared for at Phyllis Tuckwell.
