Dear Ms Ferguson

Re: Counsellor position, Ref: 30098

I am writing to apply for the position of Counsellor, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.

I am an experienced counsellor, with six years of experience in providing professional counselling services. I am currently in private practice and my areas of expertise lie in treating anxiety, depression, relationship issues, women’s issues and health-related psychosocial issues. I previously worked as a counsellor with Meadowvale Community Services, treating clients for a range of complex psychosocial issues.

I also did volunteer work for almost two years with Lifeline, providing telephone crisis support counselling services. This was a life-changing experience and gave me invaluable training and experience, particularly in crisis counselling and management.

I simply love working as a counsellor and am extremely excited at the prospect of getting back into full-time work in a busy practice. I took one year off to have a baby in 2009 and private practice has served me well since then, but I very much miss the team environment and I know that is an aspect of your practice that I would really enjoy. I would love the opportunity to make a contribution, delivering the highest standard of counselling services to your clients while continuing to learn and grow.

I have completed a Graduate Diploma of Counselling and Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling), and am a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers. I therefore possess all of the training and qualifications necessary for the role of counsellor with your practice.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Kind Regards
