Counselling Service Volunteers

The Switchboard counselling service is provided by LGBT counsellors and we are currently looking for additional volunteers, both qualified and trainee:


Qualified LGBT Counsellor

To become a volunteer counsellor with Switchboard’s counselling service you must hold a counselling qualification to at least diploma level, be a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or equivalent professional body and identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or trans.

We also offer a small number of training placements each year to counsellors in training who are enrolled on a recognised counselling course of at least diploma level.
