It means that I can provide counselling services for a charity for a few hours a week to contribute to the local community using my specialist skills. I can offer as many or as few hours each week as is convenient to my lifestyle and as fits in with my own private practice. I usually provide sessions as needed at my own practice premises, though if I am willing to do so, I may be asked to go into the premises of organisational clients to provide either counselling sessions or related services if I am qualified and willing to do so.
It is a paid role, so I invoice CCC monthly for any work I have carried out on their behalf, but my main motivation is to help people who wouldn't ordinarily be able to afford counselling, as CCC cannot guarantee what sessions may be offered to me each month.
Although funded counselling is available through your GP, there are often long waiting times and some GPs often rely on pharmaceutical solutions rather than talking therapies. Some clients are too embarrassed or don't want to bother their GP because they don't consider themselves to be 'ill'. Many of these people simply can't afford to pay market rates for private counselling so this is where CCC comes in, asking people to pay only a minimal fee according to what they can afford.
Some clients are referred to us via another specialist charity or via their employer.
Membership fees are a very small part of our funding (as little as £20 per year per member) along with chargeable CPD events and private donations. By far the majority of CCC's funding comes from providing counselling services to organisations, helping people who may not otherwise have been able to access a counsellor, and assisting employers with fulfilling their duty of care to their employees.
Most counsellors enter the profession because of a strong desire to help those in need. As their practice grows, they become aware of certain clients who might benefit from additional sessions but can't afford to pay for them. Some counsellors offer reduced rates for these clients, but wonder about those that desperately need help but couldn not afford to come to them in the first place. CCC bridges that gap, and puts those in need that can't afford to pay market rates in touch with experienced counsellors who want to help the most vulnerable in society.
Counsellors may also join to get a few extra referrals without having to advertise, or to join a group of like-minded professionals and share best practice.
Unlike working for an EAP, CCC is run by its members and Trustees. Some paid officers provide services for specialist functions such as finance and corporate sales, but counsellors are part of the team, not employees.
There are opportunities to join CCC as either an accredited or non-accredited counselling member and CCC recognises a number of professional bodies. CCC operates according to the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice, and takes pride in the high quality of counselling services provided by its members. New members are accepted if they can prove they meet the appropriate standards, following completion of an application form and a short interview. Members need to be personable and have the appropriate level of qualifications, experience, safety checks and insurance.
Please contact our Membership Officer for details.
Because CCC is a membership organisation, you can help to steer the direction of the charity and have an input into how it is run and which projects are supported. You really feel part of a community of counsellors if you choose to attend the local meetings and AGM, where you can elect Trustees and Chairs. There are regular CPD events and discussion groups, and together with a group of like-minded professionals, you are contributing to both the organisation and to the local community.
Contact the CCC Membership Officer for an application form and to discuss any questions relating to membership.
