Become a MumsAid volunteer


We rely on our fantastic group of volunteers to provide our essential services. Whether its fundraising, office support or being a MumsAid counsellor, your contribution can have a powerful and long-lasting effect on the families we help. It can also be a hugely valuable and rewarding experience for you.

Volunteer counsellors

MumsAid uses an integrative approach based on STARK©a biopsychosocial model developed by MumsAid’s founder, Dr Miriam Donaghy. We provide our evidence-based therapeutic support to new mothers and their families living in and around Greenwich who are struggling with perinatal mental health issues¹. Whilst we are already supporting hundreds of families, we know there is more we can do

We are looking for counsellors to work across the borough of Greenwich who have qualified or are currently in the final year of a substantive counselling or psychotherapy training. You should have experience in maternal mental health and be able to commit half a day a week for at least 18 months.

We are also able to offer a limited number of placements to counsellors who wish to work online.

More information is available in our volunteering pack. CVs with a covering letter should be sent to


“In volunteering for MumsAid, I truly have a sense of participating in an important endeavour. The work is dynamic and rewarding.” Sian, MumsAid Counsellor
