We are seeking to recruit either a full-time or two part-time Clinical or Counselling Psychologists on a Permanent basis for the following post(s):

(1) 0.5 FTE Permanent post – West Dorset Locality – Weymouth CMHT

(2) 0.5 FTE Permanent post - Bournemouth CMHT

We have a permanent vacancy for a Clinical/Counselling Psychologist(s) to join the Adult Psychology Service (APS) working closely with MDT on providing assessment, consultation, supervision and psychological interventions to our Community Mental Health Team(s). The Adult Psychology Service (APS) is an innovative department providing psychological services to the CMHTs. We offer a psychological programme aligned with a disorder specific pathway and employ both psychologists and specialist psychological therapists.

The post-holder will have the responsibility to provide psychological assessment and treatments directly to clients under the care of the CMHT and support the MDT with consultation, case formulation, reflective practice and supervision. Dorset Healthcare uses several platforms to deliver clinical services via remote means, so this is likely to form part of the working week alongside direct patient contact.

You will be given support to undertake CPD and receive regular clinical supervision from friendly and dedicated colleagues in the Adult Psychology Service. We have close links to the psychology departments at Exeter, Bournemouth and Southampton Universities and there will be opportunities to develop these links further.

We would also welcome applicants from newly qualified psychologists on a preceptorship basis.

Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, which the Trust will cover the cost of. Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service are able to present a valid DBS certificate instead of requiring a new check.


If you are interested in moving to Dorset we also offer a generous relocation package of up to £10,000. For further details on relocation expenses please email
