(Richmond Counselling and Psychotherapy Service)
Affordable, Accessible Therapy

  • RCPS welcomes applications from trainees who are attending approved or accredited training courses and looking for clinical placements.
  • Trainees must be DBS checked and have relevant insurance.
  • We can offer trainees up to 3 clients and the work will generally be open-ended.  As such we ask for a commitment to the service of at least 2 years. 
  • Previous clinical experience, while desirable, is not essential.
  • Trainees must be available on Tuesday mornings to attend group supervision.  There is no charge for this.  Our supervision groups are generally a mix of qualified, experienced therapists and trainees. An Tuesday evening session may be added in the near future.
  • CPD sessions are also offered, when possible, to all RCPS therapists.
  • Interviews take place throughout the year, initially in small groups and then individually if necessary.
  • If offered a place there will then be an induction and participation in group supervision while waiting to be allocated your first client.  
  • If you are interested please download, complete and send the relevant forms (links below) to Maria by email.
