Student Services is a large multi-disciplinary team that plays a crucial role in supporting our students. The Wellbeing Service is an umbrella term used to describe our various team (Counselling, Disability & Mental Health, and Faith). We provide a holistic approach to student support to ensure students’ individual needs are fully met to enhance their academic success, aid student experience, and develop each student as an individual. The Wellbeing team is a busy and in-demand service. We are a tight knit team who help and support each other. We work hard and importantly, have fun along the way.
We are looking to appoint two post holders one on a permanent full time contract and another on a fixed-term contract for 5 months.
You will provide confidential and non-judgemental counselling support to UWL students. We deliver a blended approach of "One At A Time" or OAAT therapy and short term counselling. Training will be provided to prepare you for OAAT therapy if you are not familiar with this mode of delivery. We are currently delivering sessions online via remote video counselling and in person face to face support. You will use an online data management system to review registration forms, view appointments booked and record your client/student case notes. You will also support the wider Wellbeing team in delivering workshops to students. Peer supervision will be provided, and we will also pay for private individual supervision.
Applicants will need to be a registered and/or accredited Counsellor (BACP, UKCP or BPS) with a minimum of 2 years post-qualifying experience. You will need to be experienced in short term counselling and able to work with crisis interventions using a wide range of therapeutic modalities. It is preferable although not essential for you to have experience of working with a "One At A Time" therapy model. You will be proficient using IT to conduct remote online video appointments and use data management systems to manage your caseload of students. We are seeking a fun and enthusiastic individual to join our supportive and friendly team.
