Volunteer With Us


SWCTS regularly recruits female volunteer counsellors and psychotherapists who are already qualified and looking to gain specialist experience or increase their hours, or are in training on an accredited course with women who have experienced trauma or abuse. When we have vacancies or are looking to recruit you will find details here.

In return for their skills and commitment we offer volunteers:

  • a professional, supportive and creative working environment;
  • the opportunity to gain experience in specialist work with survivors of abuse and trauma;
  • ongoing mentoring and monthly group supervision;
  • comfortable therapy rooms equipped with materials for creative therapy;
  • discounts or free places on specialist trauma training events;
  • access to a comprehensive specialist library;
  • the knowledge that your are helping support some of the most vulnerable – and courageous – women in the city
