Volunteer Counselling

Could you be a future counsellor with MHA?

Two of our counselling projects, ACIS (based in Aberdeen City) and One to One (based in Aboyne/Banchory) are predominantly staffed by our own in-house trained Volunteer Counsellors. Being a counsellor is hugely rewarding; supporting individuals at a vulnerable time in their lives, to look closely at their emotions and help them to find a way forward. All of MHA’s Counselling Projects offer Person-Centred Counselling, a modality that is based on the belief that are clients are experts in their own lives.

Commencing in January 2025, our in-house Volunteer Counsellor training will run for 12 weekends over 7 months, building on your skills as a genuine, empathic, non-judgmental listener, enhancing your self-awareness, and supporting you to be able to offer a safe, therapeutic space to our clients here at our ACIS project in Aberdeen or at One to One in Aboyne/Banchory.

Are you a good listener? Kind and caring? Looking to volunteer?
