We are looking to grow our team of Qualified Volunteer Complementary Therapists to deliver a variety of therapies to our patients.
Complementary Therapy is a combination of both modern and ancient techniques and can offer a great deal of support to those that use them.
If you have a recognised professional qualification in at least one Complementary Therapy, then we would love to hear from you about joining our team to help make a difference to our patients
Ally Gerrish has been a volunteer with the Complementary Therapy team for over two years and describes it as one of the most fulfilling things she has ever done.
I have been qualified in Sound Work and Shamanic Therapy for a number of years and I am training in Reiki but I had never before practiced the hands on relaxation techniques that Myton has specially adapted for palliative care, here the therapies are patient led to give them a sense of empowerment and control. I hadn’t previously worked in a hospice or medical environment either but everyone is so welcoming and compassionate.
Volunteering at Myton could be one of the best things you ever do, for me it has been a really transformational experience and one of the most fulfilling things that I have ever done. The day that I volunteer at Myton is always the best day of my week.
We are looking for volunteers for our hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick.
Applications can be submitted until Wednesday 21st March. To find out more, please click here.
