If you would like to join a motivated team that transforms the lives of children and families then we would love to hear from you.
BACP Registered Counsellors
Sadly the demand for counselling in the UK is ever increasing. We would love to help meet the needs of more children and families and always welcome applications from qualified counsellors to grow our teams in the South East. Fegans’ fully qualified counsellors are all registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. We have developed a delivery model which releases qualified counsellors into schools within a rigorous regulatory, safeguarding and financial framework. It can grow quickly and efficiently without the need for huge infrastructure costs. It works by centralising marketing, reporting, IT platforms, diary management, safeguarding and clinical supervision, whilst still allowing children to be met by experts in their field. This structure enables us to make the very best use of our precious resources. Now we want to take it to the nation.

Working as a Fegans' Counsellor
Can I specialise in primary or secondary?
Yes, we will endeavour to facilitate this but it will also depend on local need and accessibility.
Can I work more than ten hours in schools?
Yes, but our guidelines are to limit counsellors to spending no more than 15 hours in schools each week in order to protect your work life balance.
What if there aren’t ten hours available locally straight away?
Counsellors may start their contract on fewer hours but we will endeavour to get you to ten hours as fast as possible. This will be an ongoing dialogue between the local schools, you and the Hub.
I am a supervisor/trainer.
Does Fegans need those kind of services?
Very, very much so. We are also very keen to invest in people acquiring these kinds of skills.
I have no experience of counselling children. Can I still participate?
Possibly. We would look for two things:
1. That you have a track record of working with children (i.e. a teacher/ TA/youth group leader)
2. That you attend our week-long children’s counselling course (http://www.fegans.org.uk/training/)
