An opportunity has arisen to appoint an accredited psychological therapist or clinical/counselling psychologist to a substantive Psychological Therapist post within the adult service line in West Norfolk. You will join a supportive and enthusiastic team of psychological practitioners, with a range of specialist skills and interests, including personality disorder, psychosis, CBT, mentalisation based therapy, CAT and psychodynamic psychotherapy. The psychology team is embedded within the community mental health team, offering assessment, intervention, supervision, consultation and training across a diverse range of mental health presentations

We are looking for someone who is passionate about mental health, someone whose clinical skills and interests may complement or enhance those already provided, someone who can work well within a team setting, and someone who can embrace and support the Recovery philosophy promoted by the Trust. 

The development of specialist interests and skills will be actively encouraged and supported, in line with service needs, as will links with networks of colleagues across the Trust area of Norfolk and Suffolk, and the University of East Anglia.

Psychology is a well-established and valued resource in the West Locality, and the work environment is pleasant and supportive. The post is based in King’s Lynn. It can be considered on a full-time or part-time job-share arrangement.

West Norfolk is a mixed rural and urban area and offers a high quality of life in terms of housing, culture and leisure pursuits. The beautiful Norfolk coast is on the doorstep, whilst there are good road and rail links with London, Cambridge, Norwich and the midlands. Car ownership would be an advantage given the wide geographical area.

Interviews will be held early March 2018
