Mental Health Consultants & Counsellors-Open Vacancy

The Restorative Justice for All (RJ4All) International Institute is pleased to announce a vacancy for Mental Health Consultants and Councellors. This is an open vacancy as we accept applications on an ongoing basis

The Role

This is a consultancy post working flexibily under the line management of the Centre Manager. The consultant will support the RJ4All Therapy for Mental Health project (T4MH) funded by Southwark Council. RJ4All commissions passionate and qualified Counsellors therapy sessions. These  take place either online/ remotely or at our Community Centre. PTs/ councellors are engaged on a consultancy (self-employed basis). They are issued with a consultancy contract stating the type of sessions they will cover, the period, the fee and any matters around liability and insurance. They are paid at the end of each month via an invoice (template is also provided). We want PTs/ councellors who believe in our charitable mission as we work towards a goal that is bigger than us and which includes addressing health inequalities and power abuse. We also want PTs/councellors who can work with RJ4All and the team independently, bring their own ideas and get excited with our work, events and other programmes. We require our PTs/ councellors to take mandatory training including CPD ecourses that we provide for free. These include learning about restorative justice, safeguarding and working with marginalised groups.
