Volunteer Counsellors and Volunteer Trainee Counsellors
Volunteering at Nexus
We regularly look for volunteer counsellors and volunteer trainee counsellors to help survivors of sexual trauma. Volunteer counsellors must have completed a minimum Level 4 recognised diploma in counselling or equivalent while the volunteer trainee counselling role offers an opportunity to hone your skills while studying for your counselling diploma. We recruit for these roles periodically throughout the year and will be advertised on our social media channels.
We are the leading counselling agency working with survivors of sexual trauma in Northern Ireland. In 2018-19, we provided 16,000 counselling sessions to 751 clients and 80% of clients showed a reliable improvement. In the same year, 160 clients benefitted from our post-counselling support. This helps with reintegration back into the community, offers ways of managing wellbeing and is an opportunity for clients to strengthen their social support network. We also help children and young people through our Harm to Healing Project. Our vision is to help survivors lead happy, healthy and productive lives.
