We are part of East London NHS Foundation Trust which has been rated Outstanding for the second year by Care Quality Commission (CQC) and are committed to ensuring a healthy work life balance and a positive working environment.

NTT is an exceptional talking therapies service with excellent development opportunities.   We are committed to the progression of our team members and our posts are formulated to allow for development of clinical expertise in chosen clinical areas.  As well as offering a range of therapies, the service also runs as a training centre, therefore offering opportunities for supervision and training.
The post-holder will be part of a very dynamic team and will work alongside PWPs as well as therapists trained in a range of therapies including systemic and couple therapies, EMDR, CBT psychodynamic and integrative therapies.  We also have a dedicated team working with physical health related problems and long term conditions; this offers those who work with our team plenty of opportunities to enhance their job satisfaction by learning more about this area and developing skills in working with this population.

The post-holder will provide high intensity cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in line with NICE guidance.  We value training and qualifications in other high intensity therapies and will support those wishing to develop their careers by training in other recognised modalities.    We also value experience or interest of delivering therapy in a group format.  

The post-holder will work with clients who present with a range of complex anxiety disorders, post- traumatic stress disorder and depression related problems at step 3 for which CBT is demonstrated to be clinically effective.  The post holder will carry out telephone and face to face assessments as part of their case load.  

The post-holder will work with people with different cultural backgrounds and ages, using interpreters when necessary and work in various community settings (including GP surgeries) and psychological treatment centres.

We are looking for new members to join the team who is committed, enthusiastic and willing to contribute to the service and embrace different ways of working.  This post offers opportunities to work with a range of professionals from different therapeutic backgrounds and to be part of an evolving, integrating team.  Members of our team are committed to ensuring a healthy work life balance and a creating a positive working environment.
