Contract Type
Part Time
This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and enthusiastic Qualified CBT Therapist or Clinical Psychologist to join our new Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) in schools, based in Eastleigh, West Hampshire. This is an established team that is part of a wider service with teams covering Andover, Winchester and New Forest, which are in their first and second year of development. All teams are at an exciting stage in their development and have developed good working relationships with schools and young people in the area. We have a further new team joining us in January 2024 covering Romsey and District.

The successful post holder can choose either Eastleigh or Winchester as their main base, but will be expected to travel across both areas, and wider within the county.

The teams form part of the Early Help provision within the West of the county so will be working closely with the existing Primary Mental Health Service and other MHSTs in the region as well as the Locality based Community CAMHS teams.

Main duties of the job

You will work alongside the other Clinical Lead for MHSTs, supporting the Early Help Team Manager. It will be an opportunity to both develop your leadership skills, as well as using your clinical skills to support our young people. You will be required to provide line management and clinical supervision to our qualified and trainee clinicians

The post holder will either possess, or be willing to work towards, CBT Supervisor Accreditation and will be the lead position for the low intensity and high intensity clinicians working within both MHSTs.
