Job Description

CTC Psychological Services has provided a unique therapeutic and psychological service for over 30 years.

We provide Assessments, Court Reports and Expert Witness testimony; Therapy and Counselling; Training, Consultancy and Research; and as an Ofsted Registered Adoption Support Agency, we provide an Adoption Support Service to children and families.

Our team approach successfully integrates a wide range of established and contemporary psychotherapeutic and psychological theories, with a strong focus on Psychodynamic, Developmental and Attachment/Trauma, including Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, EMDR, Compassion Focussed Therapy and CBT.

Whilst we work with children and adults across the age range, with a diverse range of needs, much of our service provision involves working with or in relation to children, the prime objective being the welfare of the child. Safeguarding is paramount, and child protection considerations are incorporated into our practice.

Through continuing professional development, we continue to expand the knowledge base of our team and increase the range of services we can offer, providing both in-house and external training opportunities that further extend our team’s range of skills and expertise.

We are looking for a Clinical Psychologist who has the ability to work flexibly across the age range. The work is exciting and challenging, and requires good organisational and time-management skills. Our practice is based in Chester but serves a wide area, including the North West, Cumbria, the Midlands, Derbyshire and Wales, and some travel is therefore required.

Our service is committed to the protection and safeguarding of children, young people and adults in need. The successful applicant will therefore be required to provide an Enhanced DBS, the cost of which will be met by CTC.
