We are currently setting up a new project working therapeutically with clients experiencing difficulties related to gender and sexual diversity. To that end we are looking to recruit a number of qualified therapists and counsellors throughout Cumbria to join us.

As the issues faced by LGBT people are distinct and not specifically covered in most therapeutic training, we are offering a free two day training package (to be held in Carlisle on 24th and 25th February). We offer the training free of charge on the understanding that attendees will offer ten free hours of therapy to our clients in exchange. Our longer term goal is to secure funding to pay our trainees to offer sessional work as private practitioners where OutREACH Cumbria will be the referral source. In order to practice with us therapist will need to hold/obtain a current DBS (less than 3 years old) and their own indemnity insurance.We are offering this training free of charge on the understanding that attendees will offer ten free hours of therapy to our clients before they are able to practice with us as a private practitioner (costs Deadlines for applications is 14th February 2018 - NB this is the revised deadline and supersedes info on other documents
