We are looking for qualified Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners to join us in delivering the best care we can to our patients.
The PWP role is highly valued and seen as an integral part of what we do. Our PWPs provide disorder specific assessments and evidence-based low intensity CBT interventions for people with anxiety disorders and/or depression. We work to the stepped care model to provide the least intrusive and most appropriate level of care to meet the needs of the person. Therefore, our PWPs will offer a wide range of treatments, including telephone and online treatment, CBT programmes, psycho-educational groups, courses, workshops, webinars and one-to-one work. Adapting what we offer to make our treatments more accessible is a critical characteristic of what we do.
Being a PWP within NHS Talking Therapies means joining a provider who really values the PWP role and we have PWP preceptorship and career development opportunities through to senior management and clinical roles.
As you will already know, the PWP role is fast-paced and carries a high-volume caseload. We listen to our PWPs wellbeing needs and provide clinical CPD, self-care sessions and high-quality resources to enable you to support people effectively. The role is varied and constantly evolving with the evidence base and guidance and you can be a part of our evolution if you join us.
- We will care for you, your role and career development, while you care for the people who need our support.
- Together we will evolve and innovate services to help us to face the future needs of people with anxiety disorders and depression.
- Together we will increase access; provide the least burdensome, most effective treatments first; and help more people to recover.
We have permanent, full & part-time (min 22.5 hours per week) roles available, working between the hours of 8am – 8pm Monday to Friday with onsite and hybrid options available.
This advert is open ended and applications will be shortlisted within a week of receipt.
