Counselling Trainees

Volunteer and Trainee applications are now closed! If you make the short list you will hear from us within the next week. For all those that do not hear from us we are sorry, but the demand was very high. We had more than 60 applications and less than 10 vacancies.

We are looking for Volunteers and Trainees at SCQF level 10 and above to contribute to the development of the Stepping Stones counselling service.

Person Centred Therapist and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Trainees can apply for a placement in our busy organisation.

We have opportunities for people who are keen to develop their skills with adults aged 16 plus who have a range of mental health conditions.

For instance, we are looking for people who are interested in developing bereavement and loss skills. This is more prevalent given the times we are living in.

Also, we are keen to hear from trainees who may be looking to develop their skills as a therapist in the integrative modality.


Volunteering is something we offer to post-qualified therapists. Are you looking to develop your skills, or need a suitable placement to work towards your accreditation?

Why should I apply?

Stepping Stones has delivered counselling services for more than 15 years to our local communities.

Furthermore, we have well developed support systems in place. The right people will find that Stepping Stones has;

  • Strong governance;
  • Excellent support mechanisms;
  • Experienced staff and mentors;
  • Average turn up rates of 80%;
  • Group work opportunities;
  • Long standing relationships with educational establishments;
  • Other CPD opportunities available on request.

More information about the placement is available here.
