Tower Hamlets Adult Mental Health Psychology is looking to recruit a highly motivated HCPC-registered Clinical or Counselling Psychologist to a part-time Band 8a post in our BME Access Service. The BME Access service model is influenced by community psychology approaches and involves working in partnership with local community and faith-based organisations. The post would be suitable for an experienced Psychologist keen to take on the challenges of working in a diverse borough in order to improve accessibility and cultural relevance of psychological interventions to the communities we serve.

Candidates should have an interest in and experience of working with people with severe and enduring mental health needs from a range of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. They should also have an interest in and experience of working in partnership with staff teams, community and faith-based organisations to deliver psychologically-informed care. Candidates should also have a commitment to co-production within their work. The successful candidate will contribute to staff training and provide psychological advice (informal and formal consultation) to other staff, community workers, carers and people with lived experience of mental distress.

In addition to membership of the above team, the successful candidate will be closely involved with the Department of Adult Mental Health Psychology, under whose governance you will experience continuing professional development, including regular specific psychological training and liaison with North Thames Clinical Psychology Doctorate courses. Within the Adult Community Psychology Team a range of approaches is promoted, including CBT, CFT, narrative therapy and community psychology and this is supported by strong peer and specialist supervision.
