Volunteering with us

Using your skills in psychology

Are you a (clinical) psychologist and do you want to do meaningful and professional volunteer work? Then you will fit perfectly within our amazing volunteer team!

As Iguality volunteer therapist, you will be using your experience and skills to offer psychosocial support to a wide range of target groups, ranging from refugees and migrants to individuals from the LGBTQI+ community.  

What do you need?

The volunteering requirements

Educational background

We require a Master’s Degree in Psychology, and ideally a degree in Clinical Psychology. The country of obtaining the degree doesn’t matter.

Spoken language(s)

You need to be able to speak English and/or Spanish. Catalan is not a must. We may be able to use your other language skills, especially if you also speak Arabic, Portuguese, Farsi, Bengali or French.

Professional experience

We require at least 6 months of experience offering therapy / counselling / psychosocial support. Internship experience also counts, depending on the type of internship.


Once you start a support process with someone, we kindly ask you to dedicate to at least 15 sessions (+/- 15 weeks) of 50-120m through online and/or in-person sessions, including one monthly supervision session with other volunteers of 30m.


Ideally we work with volunteers based in Barcelona, but if you could offer online support from another location that may also be feasible, to be decided on a case-by-case basis.

How does the volunteering work?

Key information before starting

The sessions

Once you are connected to the person you will support (who will be selected in consultation with you), you can have weekly or bi-weekly sessions. They can happen online or in-person, depending on preferences. A session will be between 50 and 120m, depending on the need and your availability. You will need to log each session, and you can always access your own notes through a safe and secure digital platform.

The supervision

Every month, Iguality organises a Supervision session for all volunteers that are currently working on a case. We kindly ask you to join this session so we can get an update on the case and to give you the opportunity to share any doubts or questions. This session happens online and you can join to just share your case (20-30m), or stay longer and also support other volunteer therapists with their cases.
