NECS are a dynamic and innovative counselling agency. We were formed in 2006 as a Community Interest Company.

Over the last 2 years we have reached unprecedented levels of demand for counselling. We've created 16 contract counsellor roles, supported 12 placement counsellors to qualify and helped 10 counsellors to return to self-employed counselling. Since July 2020, we've provided over 14000 counselling sessions to 1698 people (many of them by Zoom or telephone).

We are now looking to recruit more counsellors for our pool of Associate Counsellors. You will be self-employed and have your own insurance and an enhanced DBS check.

We pay a rate of £20/hour for sessions delivered and provide clinical supervision for the client work you deliver on our behalf.

We're looking for counsellors who want a minimum of 4 hours work per week, we welcome applications from fully qualified counsellors who are experienced and can provide a reference. We deliver couples counselling, counselling for children and young people and counselling for adults.

Availability is required on evenings and weekends, although you may be able to work in schools.

Becoming an Associate with NECS will enable you to apply for any contract work we are offering.
