All the counsellors on Spill are fully qualified, fully insured and have a minimum of 200 clinical hours under their belt already.

But these are just the minimum requirements in order to apply to Spill: in fact, we only end up hiring the top 13% of applicants after a strict hiring process that includes a mock therapy session. In short: only the best!

Spill’s counsellor hiring and counsellor onboarding process

We verify qualifications and accreditations

All of our counsellors are registered with one of the two major UK governing bodies: the BACP and the NCS. All of our counsellors need to have have to have completed a 3-year degree or equivalent, and have at least 200 hours of clinical experience post-qualification.

We test for breadth and depth of psychotherapeutic expertise

We test for knowledge, expertise and clarity of communication by asking counsellors to submit explanations of different psychotherapeutic concepts. A clinician assesses their explanation and marks them against criteria including how accurate their explanations are, how clearly the explanations are laid out and how accessible they are to people without a counselling background.

We assess how well counsellors perform in different parts of their roles

The third step in our hiring process gives counsellors various scenarios and asks them to suggest what they’d do next in each situation. Here, we’re looking for how well they can problem solve and if they cut through the noise to pick out the most effective next step for each case.

We test for cultural fit

We don’t just want to work with great therapists, but with great counsellors who will understand our clients. So, the final stage each therapist goes through in our hiring process is a real therapy session with a member of the Spill team, to make sure that they’ll work well with everyone who uses Spill. We also hire a diverse range of counsellors, so that employees from a wide range of cultural backgrounds can talk to somebody who gets them, no matter their gender, sexuality or race.

We help our counsellors get better

With more than 80 counsellors working with Spill, we have a valued online community of professionals sharing resources and advice with each other to learn about new therapeutic techniques and approaches. We also run training on specific topics when we notice that there’s a gap in knowledge among the team, bringing in external experts to deliver sessions on subjects including neurodiversity and single-session therapy.

We provide monthly support

Every therapist working regularly with Spill is required to attend clinical supervision with a member of our senior clinical team, giving them the chance to discuss any problems and feel fully supported to take the right steps for each individual client. We also provide safeguarding supervision whenever a therapist is concerned about a client, to make sure that any risk is mitigated as safely and as quickly as possible.
