Clinical Psychologist/Counselling Psychologist (3 posts)


Exciting opportunities have arisen for Clinical or Counselling Psychologist posts within our PATH and ARMS services.  


PATH (Psychosis: Prevention, Assessment and Treatment in Hertfordshire) is a specialist service for those experiencing a first episode of psychosis. 


ARMS (At Risk Mental State) is a new service aimed at identifying and supporting individuals who are vulnerable to developing psychosis. Our ARMS team is a preventative mental health team to support young people aged 14-35 years old. It is a psychologically led service designed to prevent or delay the transition to psychosis.


We’re implementing the Access and Waiting Time Standard for early intervention in psychosis (EIP), which is a clear national priority for the NHS. This standard will make a major difference to the quality of care received by those with First Episode Psychosis and greatly improve their ability to recover.


You’ll be a qualified Clinical or Counselling Psychologist with a high level of experience in delivering services to people presenting with psychoses. Such experience would definitely have included some training in working with people presenting with Psychoses or at-risk mental states. 


You’ll be part of a multi-disciplinary team, where the Care Co-ordinators will support people across a whole range of health and social care needs, including delivery of psychological interventions such as CBT and Family Interventions, housing, benefits and debt advice.


You’ll need to be skilled in working with recovery based and collaborative approaches to care planning, working flexibly and creatively with people in order to achieve their individual goals.


You will be responsible for ensuring the good governance of psychological therapies for people with psychosis within your service area, providing therapy, assessments, supervision and consultation. As this service will need to produce regular data demonstrating that the service provided is at the highest national standards, an important part of your job will be ensuring that data is collected and presented in a timely way to demonstrate the activity and effectiveness of this part of the service. 


We’ll offer you a bespoke professional development plan with opportunities to further develop your skills.


The posts are a mix of full and part time and will be based in Radlett, Stevenage and Kingsley Green. Opportunities exist at Band 6, Band 7 and Band 8A.
