We are delighted to offer an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic practitioner to train in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) with a view to transitioning to band 7 upon completing their training and accreditation in DBT.

We are a team of psychologists and psychological therapists working across the three community mental health teams in Southampton. We are a cohesive, supportive and friendly team with a wealth of clinical expertise including CBT, DBT, CAT, ACT, EMDR and psychodynamic approaches. We have good supervision structures and an excellent track record of CPD, as well as strong links with the University of Southampton and the University of Plymouth.

You would complete postgraduate training in DBT, alongside offering a clinical service to patients under supervision. You will specialise in offering therapy to service users experiencing emotional dysregulation, including those with a diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder. You will deliver full-package DBT as part of a team, including group work and coaching. You will also help deliver DBT-informed interventions such as emotional coping skills groups. You will attend DBT consult regularly, which will be a further source of learning and support. You will help deliver a Family Connections group for relatives and carers of those experiencing difficulties linked to emotion dysregulation. Alongside your direct clinical work, you will offer consultation, supervision and training to other team members.

We are seeking applicants with a core professional training in mental health (nursing, occupational therapy or social work) and some experience of working with people with a diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder. Applicants should have solid experience in mental health and strong interpersonal skills, together with the motivation and aptitude to complete a postgraduate qualification in psychological therapy.

Flexible working arrangements are possible, including some remote working according to clinical need.

We are committed to equality of opportunity and keen to increase the diversity of our team.

Informal enquiries and visits are very welcome. Please contact Dr Paul Bayliss, Consultant Clinical Psychologist in the community on: 07500 881333 e-mail paul.bayliss@southernhealth.nhs.uk
