We welcome interest from clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists, systemic/family psychotherapists, child & adolescent psychotherapists or other associated disciplines who have significant experience of working with young people, their families and related systems. The role will be primarily direct work, consultation, training (individual/group) and supervision.
