We are looking for a committed and forward-thinking 8b Principal Systemic and Family Psychotherapist or ACP registered Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist to join our HPFT Specialist CAMHS service. As a senior clinician in the CAMHS North team, you would work closely with the Consultant Psychologist and the Quadrant Leadership Team to lead the clinical work within the wider team as well as manage your own core and specialist caseloads whilst taking an active role in developing systemic psychotherapy/ child and adolescent psychotherapy provision in the team and the wider service. You would have close links with the professional lead for your discipline and would join the relevant professional network within HPFT CAMHS. Locally, you would be working within a multidisciplinary team. As a systemic and family psychotherapist you would lead the family therapy clinics. You would supervise staff within your discipline, including trainees, and offer consultation to the wider team.
The HPFT CAMHS service has been at the forefront of national developments in CAMHS, including CAPA and CYP-IAPT, and Hertfordshire is both an i-Thrive accelerator and schools link pilot site. The HPFT CAMHS service includes four community based ‘tier 3’ teams, a crisis assessment/treatment team (C-CATT), an Eating Disorder Team, an inpatient unit (Forest House) and a Targeted Team for looked after or adopted children. We have recently operationalised our CAMHS Home Treatment and DBT teams. We offer a range of psychological therapies across these teams. We have close links with other agencies including the local ‘tier 2’ CAMHS service, school link workers and children’s social services.
As a service, we are keen to promote CPD and research opportunities, and we offer placements to trainees within all psychological therapies and have strong links with local training courses. We value clinical supervision, both peer group and individual. We are an innovative and dynamic service, working as a multi-disciplinary team to address new challenges, and we are looking for an enthusiastic candidate to join us in moving forward.
We are conveniently located in Stevenage Old Town, just a 5 minute walk from fast train links into London.
