Holistic practitioner/Group facilitator

Description of the Volunteer Role: About the opportunity
Our treatment centres aim to provide a range of complementary therapies such as Acupuncture, Yoga, Reflexology, Reiki and group meditation to our clients on their individual recovery routes.

Therapies are usually provided during a weekly group or 1:1 sessions.

About DHI (Developing Health & Independence)
DHI is an award winning charity helping over 5,000 disadvantaged people each year turn their lives around. The people we help are often disadvantaged or living at the margins, meaning they are disproportionately affected by substance misuse, homelessness, offending, mental health issues and other factors that contribute to social exclusion. Few, if any of our clients, come with a single issue.

Rather than treat issues in isolation, we work with the person to find and resolve the root cause of complex issues. Often, the root cause is housing-related, so this is an area of focus for us. We see the person, not the label, and find the most effective way to help through highly practical and innovative projects and services.

We work in Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire, and Somerset.

What are we looking for?
If you are a qualified complementary therapist or therapeutic group practitioner who is interested in giving up just a few hours a week to help our clients we’d love to hear from you! We have opportunities across our treatment services, including Yate, Patchway and Warmley.

We are particularly keen to hear from individuals who could lead regular group workshops in the following specialisms:
• Yoga
• Meditation
• Tai Chi
• Group music
• Personal fitness (e.g. coach to 5k or group fitness sessions)

You will require a recognised qualification and your own insurance to practice your specialist discipline.
