Band 7 - CBT Therapist (BABCP Accredited) or Clinical Psychologist/Counselling Psychologist

Are you passionate about promoting meaningful and effective therapeutic experiences for clients at Step 3 and wish to expand your skills and knowledge, in a high performing service?
Then we want to hear from you.

Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service is an expanding IAPT service. We consistently achieve excellent recovery and reliable improvement rates, due to our focus on delivering flexible packages of care, designed to meet patient needs. We have also devised specialist treatment programmes delivering PTSD workshops, CBT for insomnia and are now focussing on therapy tailored for the treatment of long term conditions.

We are looking for CBT Therapists or Clinical / Counselling Psychologists who are BABCP accredited or eligible for accreditation to join the service at this interesting time of change and expansion within Bedford.

East London NHS Foundation Trust also provides IAPT services in Newham, Tower Hamlets and Richmond. The four services work together on joint projects, sharing good practice and opportunities for training.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a team that is moving into a new phase of development and expansion. Your ideas and creativity would be welcome in contributing to the delivery of an innovative service, which meets the needs of the local diverse community.
