Here at Simpson House in Edinburgh we provide a range of counselling and support services for people affected by their own or another’s drug use. We also offer the Sunflower Garden Project, that provides vital and much needed support to children and young people affected by parental drug and/or alcohol use in their families.

Working within a team environment, you will deliver counselling and help deliver different therapeutic programmes for clients. This will involve assessing new clients, delivering counselling and providing programmes and you will be responsible for managing your own case load.

You need a recognised counselling qualification at diploma level (sufficient for the candidate to be eligible for individual accreditation with BACP or COSCA). You will also need a minimum of 200 hours post qualifying experience under clinical supervision. In return, we’ll make sure that you have all the training and development you need, not only so you can do a great job, but to help you build your career with us too. You can also look forward to an excellent benefits package that includes an employer contributory pension and generous holiday allowance.

What’s more, you will be part of one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social work organisations. At CrossReach, we offer quality care and counselling to a wide range of people in need. But the real story of CrossReach is the work that our staff do: reaching out and making a real difference to the lives of others. If you’d like to join them, we look forward to hearing from you.
