IAPT accredited Counsellors

We have opportunities for counsellors to provide services on a self-employed contractor basis with a fixed rate per session.  The counsellors will have the use of Hospice counselling rooms and supervision with an accredited supervisor.

Candidates must hold accreditation, or be working towards accreditation, with BACP, UKCP, BABCP or BCP and have experience of working with clients who have anxiety and depression, be skilled in assessment and be IAPT compliant.

A minimum commitment of 4 hours per week is required though 5 hours per week would be preferable.

We would be particularly interested in hearing from you if you are able to offer evenings or weekends.

The post-holders will be part of a multi-skilled team of both staff and volunteers but will be specifically responsible for providing one to one counselling to those clients who are assessed as requiring time-limited counselling using an IAPT model.

Payment is only made when clients attend.

Peace Hospice Care (PHC) has been supporting people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, from across the community for 25 years.  Awarded ‘Outstanding’ for being caring by the Care Quality Commission in 2016, and ‘Good’ overall, we are an award-winning charity dedicated to supporting and empowering patients and their families.

Based in Watford, within a 5-minute walking distance of Watford High Street and Intu Shopping Centre, we cover 36 GP practices which serve a population of 320,000.  We offer a professional and exciting working environment supported by an open culture of learning and development for all our staff and volunteers.

Our three core clinical services are: Inpatient Unit, Starlight Outpatient Services and our Community Services.  We also host the West Herts Palliative Referral Centre.

In 2017 our Inpatient Unit was refurbished.  We have 12 specialist palliative and end of life short stay beds which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the support of a multi-disciplinary team.

Our vision is to be the leading provider for specialist palliative and end of life care across South West Hertfordshire and the wider area. To support this vision, we have recently developed a five-year clinical strategy with the aim of reaching more people, and bringing high quality care closer to home.

Peace Hospice Care is an organisation that strives continuously to demonstrate our Values of ‘Respect’, ‘Innovation’, ‘Responsive’, ‘Excellence’ and Integrity’.

These values are embedded in our recruitment and selection processes and we are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in both our workforce and within our culture.

The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for every employee and volunteer to feel respected and supported to perform at their best, and achieve their full potential.

There has never been a more exciting time to join Peace Hospice Care, as we strive to become the leading provider of specialist palliative care in our community.
