Counsellor recruitment

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of people affected by eating distress? 

Eating Distress North East (EDNE) is the only eating distress charity in the region, with a 30 year track record of supporting people with eating distress, and their loved ones. We are recruiting for counsellors to work with clients age 16+ and dealing with issues associated with eating distress / disorders.  

We’re a mental health charity who understand that eating distress and disorders are a manifestation of mental health distress. 

Our counselling approach is integrative and person-centred. As part of our counselling team, you will contribute to the holistic approach that EDNE services take to improving the health and wellbeing of people with eating distress. We are currently operating a blended service and counselling will be provided both in person and remotely.  

Newcastle and Gateshead 

We are looking for counsellors to work with residents of Newcastle and Gateshead from our Newcastle city centre base, with some outreach work, both in person and online. We can be flexible on hours and will consider one full time post or two part time (18.5 hours minimum) posts. 

Durham and Tees Valley 

We are also looking for counsellors to work with residents of Durham and the Tees Valley, delivering counselling support online and in person from our Newcastle base, with some outreach work. We can be flexible on hours and will consider one role at 4.5 days or two  part time roles (hours to be negotiated). 

We offer access to training opportunities to contribute to your professional development and in particular around eating distress if you haven’t worked with this client group before. 

Regular clinical supervision will be a requirement of the posts. EDNE will contribute to the cost of accessing this for this role.  

An Enhanced DBS check will be required for this post and applicants must be registered with the BACP / UKCP or equivalent, and either accredited or working towards accreditation.   

To apply please download the candidate pack and application form and return to enquiries@edne.org.uk and if you have any questions in advance of submitting an application please contact us at the same email address.
