The Wellbeing Service is an IAPT Service, providing primary care assessment, advice and psychological interventions to people in Suffolk aged 16 upwards, who would like to access support with mental health difficulties including anxiety and depressive disorders.
The service is delivered via a partnership between Norfolk & Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT). We deliver a bio-psycho-social model which includes psychological, employment and social interventions across the county. Our treatments are delivered primarily by telephone, and online via webinars, Skype, computerised CBT (cCBT) and face to face.
Our busy and high volume service continues to expand, as we plan to work more with clients that have long term physical health conditions (LTCs) alongside common mental health problems.

This is an opportunity for Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner with post qualification experience, who is passionate about the Step 2 model, to develop their career within the service.
You will be excellent communicators, self-motivated and committed to delivering a high standard of care. The role predominantly involves providing regular case management supervision, and the provision of clinical skills training (group) as required, to qualified and trainee PWPs, in order to ensure the quality of the service at Step 2 is maintained and that our PWPs are enabled to develop their clinical skills.
You will assist the leadership team in the development of the Low Intensity part of the service, whilst helping the service achieve its required key performance indicators. The role will also include holding a small caseload of clients, delivering clinical interventions for up to one day per week.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIESApart from its legal duties in relation to equality and diversity, the Trust recognises and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce and is committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Additionally, people with disabilities that fall under the Two Ticks - Guaranteed Interview Scheme will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post (outlined in the Person Specification). DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
