We are looking for a Clinical or Counselling Psychologist to join our friendly and innovative Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIIP) Service.

This is an exciting time to be involved in early intervention, with national recognition of the effectiveness of the model leading to plans to expand and enhance the care that we provide. This would be an excellent opportunity for a newly qualified psychologist or current band 7 looking to move into EIIP. The role offers excellent professional development; including the opportunity to supervise junior colleagues, provide teaching and consultation to MDT colleagues and develop skills in providing psychological opinion and knowledge within a friendly MDT. This is alongside the opportunity to provide individual and group psychological interventions including CBT for psychosis and an ACT for psychosis group. People experiencing psychosis bring a rich and diverse experience, enabling therapeutic work that targets a range of clinical needs and utilising various psychological models and thinking.

The post is based in our East Surrey Team based at Horizon House in Epsom with a satellite base in Redhill. The psychologist would be seeing clients largely from the Reigate, Redhill area, although they would also be expected to see some clients in Epsom, Dorking and Molesey. Some remote working continues..

Our EIIP service are MDTs consisting of community Psychiatric Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Administrators, Psychiatrists and Psychologists working with people aged between 14 and 65 who have experienced a first episode of psychosis. We seek actively to engage, assess, treat and support people in their recovery, and work with them for up to three years. You will need to be able to collaborate closely with your MDT colleagues whilst also retaining the distinctive skills of a psychologist. Whilst you will be part of supportive teams, you will need to be able to work autonomously in visiting clients across a large catchment area.

We are looking for a psychologist who has a keen interest in working with this client group and their families, and in the EIIP model. You will be involved in assessment of clients referred to the team and will provide psychological therapy to clients. You will assist the Senior Psychologist in coordinating referrals to Psychology. You will also have the opportunity to provide family interventions and support the team in the provision of this treatment.

You will be supervised by the Senior Psychologist, Band 8a and you will join part of the therapies team in EIIP which includes a CBT Therapist. You will also be part of the wider team of Psychologists across the Trust in the Working Age Adult Directorate and there will be good opportunities for continuing professional development.

If you wish to discuss this post further, please contact Dr Liana Hadleigh, Senior Clinical Psychologist, on, 07825935126 or Pete Williams, EIIP Service Lead on 01372 216500.
