We are looking for an experienced Child and adolescent Psychotherapist to join our thriving multidisciplinary team within Salisbury CAMHS. This is chance to join our Trust at an exciting time as we transform our services guided by the iThrive model.

Salisbury is a beautiful city with a thriving Arts scene. It is 10 miles from Stonehenge and embedded in Salisbury Plain and West Wiltshire Downs. Salisbury is also 20 miles from the coast. There are military camps nearby and approximately 8% of children in Wiltshire live in military families. There are direct train links with London/Bath and Southampton.

The post holder will be involved in planning and delivering assessments and therapeutic interventions for children and young people with complex mental health problems, in collaboration with multidisciplinary team colleagues. A core part of this role will be to deliver psychotherapy to children and young people. This role will also involve working on our complex cases pathway, where children or young people are already open to several agencies and reflecting with the network is the most helpful way to start their CAMHS input. There are opportunities for both face to face and digital home working.

The post holder will play a strong role in supporting colleagues to reflect on their practice including by facilitating a reflective practice group. The post holder will be a full member of the multi-disciplinary team, joining in team meetings and discussion and supporting with duty and initial assessments into the service. Child psychotherapy is highly valued and well respected within the team. This post has become vacant due to retirement of long standing member of staff.

Supervision and CPD are high priorities for the service, you will join a strong group of child psychotherapists across Banes Swindon and Wiltshire who meet regularly for professional meetings and at least once a year we join with our colleagues in Oxford and Bucks for a child psychotherapy away day. Child psychotherapy has a strong place in our CAMHS multidisciplinary teams, you will be one of 5 senior child psychotherapists across the five Getting More Help teams in BSW, alongside this many teams have a band 7 and all teams have a trainee. There is strong child psychotherapy leadership within the trust.

There will be the opportunity to further develop a wide range of skills such as teaching and training colleagues, and consultation. We have a strong culture of having trainees from all disciplines in the team and we are always pleased to host at least one child psychotherapy trainee in our team. The post holder will supervise the trainee psychotherapists and liaise with the training course.

As a leading teaching, training and research trust, we have close links to Oxford and Oxford Brookes, Buckinghamshire, Reading and Bath universities. We are part of the Oxford Academic Health Science Centre, working closely with our university colleagues to translate their findings into clinical care as quickly as possible, enabling people using our services to benefit from the latest advances in healthcare.
