We have a number of exciting opportunities for innovative and enthusiastic Clinical/Counselling Psychologists to join our highly regarded perinatal mental health service.

These full-time roles involve providing individual and systemic support to women and their families within the community. The focus will be on delivering formulation based and NICE recommended psychological interventions to women with moderate to severe mental health difficulties who are pregnant or within 24 months of the postnatal period. We offer a range of therapeutic modalities including CBT, CFT, ACT and EMDR.

You will contribute to the supervision, consultation and training of the MDT who consist of highly skilled, and psychologically minded professionals including Psychiatrists, perinatal mental health nurses, social worker, Pharmacy, occupational therapist, peer support workers and nursery nurses. Our service aims to provide specialist and early help to parents and babies to help with a range of perinatal mental health issues, and we are passionate in providing trauma informed care.

You will receive regular management and clinical supervision, and reflective practice, and will have support and supervision from the senior psychologist within the team. You will be one of a team of Psychologists who work in the perinatal and maternal mental health service, and the wider adult community teams. We are able to provide excellent training opportunities including opportunities to access specialist training such as EMDR, to develop an area of specialist interest and one’s own style of working. Staff well-being and development are at the heart of our ambitions. We have an active CPD program across the Trust in relation to both clinical and leadership development, as well as a staff wellbeing service supporting individuals and teams.
