Are you a CBT therapist or psychological therapist looking for a new challenge? If so, then we would like to talk to you.

We have recently secured additional funding to continue to expand the Community Eating Disorders Service. With the development of our in-house Physical Health Monitoring team well underway, we are now looking to further expand our Psychological Therapies team. We are looking to recruit enthusiastic and highly motivated therapists who are interested in developing their knowledge and clinical skills in working with people with eating disorders and their families.

We have access to high quality national training opportunities, including the Adult Eating Disorder Whole Team Training programme, run by Maudsley Learning. For those interested in developing their CBT skills specifically, there is the opportunity to apply for a place on the IAPT-SMI training course delivered by UCL (one year CBT-ED top-up training). There are also opportunities to train in the delivery of other evidence-based treatments (e.g. MANTRA, DBT-BED) as well to upskill in broader areas, such as working with eating disorders in the context of co-morbid physical health conditions, such as diabetes.

The role offers exciting opportunities for direct clinical work, service development and multi-disciplinary team working. You will provide evidence-based psychological interventions to people experiencing a wide range of eating disorders, many of whom present with comorbid mental health difficulties. The roles will involve delivering individual and group interventions, as well as some joint work with our day service staff. You will also be involved in providing consultation, training and supervision to others within and outside of the team.

You will join a friendly and supportive, multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, committed to delivering high quality care and promoting recovery. You will receive regular supervision and will have access to a range of learning and development opportunities. Within the service we offer a range of evidence-based interventions, including CBT-ED, DBT, SSCM, MANTRA and psychodynamic psychotherapy. We also work closely with families and carers and you will have the opportunity to be involved in taking this work forward.

The service was rated ‘good’ across all domains in the last full CQC inspection (2014). Applicants should be qualified in a core profession, and/or hold at least provisional accreditation with an appropriate psychotherapy organisation. Informal enquiries and visits are encouraged.

For an informal discussion please contact Dr Hannah Turner, Consultant Lead Clinical Psychologist or Dr Louise Melhuish, Clinical Psychologist, on 023 8081 9000.

Please note that we will shortlist sporadically before the closure of this job advert, therefore you will be contacted shortly after you apply.
