Jobs & trainee placements


Oasis-Talk often has openings for suitably qualified counsellors, therapists and workshop facilitators. We will post vacancies on this website as they arise. We’ll also issue news alerts when we are recruiting. If you’re interested, be sure to sign up for our RSS service.

Please see the vacancies page for further information on our current advertised roles.

We are currently adding to our freelance course facilitator pool, and we also from time to time take on volunteer placements from suitable backgrounds who wish to gain experience in facilitating psycho-educational groups.


We believe in helping to develop the next generation of counsellors and cognitive behavioural therapists. We offer voluntary training placements to students on accredited training courses with reputable educational institutions and training organisations.

Many of our paid therapists started with us on voluntary training placements. We look for placements who:

– have previous placement experience

– have accumulated a minimum of 75 practice hours

– are training on an accredited course (eg BACP/BPS) and have reached Year 2 at Diploma level


– are qualified and looking for a placement to apply for accreditation

In exchange, Oasis-Talk will provide:

– a variety of presenting issues

– fortnightly supervision

– organisational and team support

– CPD and development opportunities

The support I received from my mentor, supervisor and the organisation as a whole throughout my two-year training placement was great. It played a huge part in my development as a counsellor. I’ve loved the work here and was delighted when I was able to continue working with Oasis-Talk after I’d qualified.
