CALLING ALL QUALIFIED AND SOON TO QUALIFY PWPS!! Are you passionate about promoting meaningful and effective therapeutic experiences for clients at Step 2 (in a way that you would hope a loved one to experience) and dedicated to this process both personally and professionally? Then we want to hear from you.
Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service is a growing IAPT service. We have the honour and privilege to deliver idiosyncratic packages of care for our clients in Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service, based on evidence-based therapies proven to be effective at Step 2. Our PWPs have expanded into several specialist areas including BME outreach, Older Adult work, CBT for insomnia, Silvercloud and co-facilitating PTSD workshops with CBT therapists. PWPs devise a stepped care treatment package for clients at LI assessment (post telephone triage) and liaise closely with colleagues across the specialist areas including third sector partnership organisations, and Step 3 colleagues in high intensity therapies (CBT, EMDR, and counselling).
Internal and external training for working within specialist areas at Step 2 is provided. All PWPs are supported within the CPD to gain clinical experience in their area of interest and as a service we love to get involved in all PWP matters both locally and nationally.
The service is looking to recruit Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners to provide assessment and PWP interventions with people from a range of cultural backgrounds and ages, using interpreters when necessary. After a period of time, it may be possible to work part of your hours from home, conducting telephone work.
This is an opportunity to join a team that is still in its formation and contribute to developing an effective and innovative service provision.
