One in Four is a charity which provides specialist and restorative therapeutic services for people who have experienced childhood sexual abuse and/or sexual violence.

One in Four offers a range of excellent training and career advancement opportunities as well as high quality support and supervision for placement students. One in Four is committed to working hand in hand with training institutions to ensure a positive placement experience.

We prefer that our volunteers are able to make a 24-month commitment to the client work as we offer two year contracts to clients. Volunteers need to be aware that clients’ material can often be extremely graphic and traumatic and we need to ensure they have a level of personal resilience to support them in working with these issues.

Placement Counsellors must have the following:

  • Individual insurance
  • Be a member of the BACP or other equivalent body
  • A minimum of 50 counselling hours with another placement. (Although consideration may be given to lesser hours)
  • Have a private supervisor in addition to the free supervision provided by One in Four
  • Students need to be in personal therapy
