The service
Outcome is a client led LGBTQI+ service at Islington Mind that has been run by a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans team for 15 years and is one of the few LGBT mental health services in London. We are in the Ashley Road Islington Mind centre at 35 Ashley Road, London N19 3AG.

We are currently recruiting volunteer counsellors on our Rainbow Suicide Prevention London (RSPL) counselling services. RSPL is a service that assists LGBTQI+ asylum seekers and refugees, all trans and non-binary people, and LGBTQI+ people ages 18-25 who would benefit from psychotherapy. It is our aim to improve access to mental health support and care especially to those of racialised, ethnic- and racial minority backgrounds, offering a diversity-focused service.

We are recruiting 1 trans trainee/qualified counsellor to begin volunteering with us ASAP. As Outcome supports LGBTQI+ POC communities, we are looking to recruit volunteers representing this demographic and with diverse lived experiences.

What we offer
Group supervisions with a highly experienced senior LGBTQI+ clinical supervisor of colour fortnightly (Mondays or Wednesdays).
An opportunity to practice within a multicultural and established specialist service.
An opportunity to get involved with projects and initiatives at Islington Mind.
A chance to develop clinical experience with clients from several diverse parts of the world and plural ethnical and cultural backgrounds.
Commitment and Eligibility
The Psychotherapy service takes place on Wednesdays and/or Tuesdays, according to the therapists’ schedule.

Workload of 2-5 clients per psychotherapist.
Applicant must be at least in their second year of clinical training and working towards a qualification and registration with one of the main UK regulatory bodies (UKCP, BACP, etc.)
One-year-long commitment and availability on Wednesdays/Tuesdays (once every two weeks) for supervision.
Candidates must identify as LGBTQI+ and we are especially encouraging racialised and trans people to apply given the lack of representation in the talking therapies sector and the clinic’s client demographic.
Candidates also need to have, or be willing to secure, an enhanced DBS check as well as personal indemnity insurance.
