Volunteer Counsellor

The Wellington Women’s Health Collective


The Wellington Women’s Health Collective runs an established counselling service, which has been offering free counselling to women on low incomes. We receive referrals from a range of providers and accept self-referrals. Our service is in strong demand.

We currently have an opening starting June 2021. You will need to be available between 9.30 am and 3pm. This is a voluntary position.


There are some advantages to counselling at WHC:

  • Clients who present with a range of diverse issues
  • Paid supervision
  • Generous volunteer expenses to cover travel cost
  • A friendly team of counsellors and support worker
  • A peer supervision group for counsellors within the service
  • A central city location.


We need you to be qualified, and to have some practical experience, an ability to work well within a team and a reasonable level of skill and confidence. Counsellors come in for a set day or half-day per week, taking 3 or 4 clients each. You may be working towards registration, or be semi-retired and like the idea of a small caseload.

This opportunity should appeal to someone who wants to make a difference to the vulnerable women in our community.


The Wellington Women’s Health Collective (“the Collective”) is a small not for profit organisation that has at its heart the well-being of women. It was formed in 1986 and since then has become an established part of the Wellington community. The Collective currently provides one to one support, information, referrals, counselling services and reproductive health products.
