We are looking for an enthusiastic Psychodynamic Psychotherapist to join our large, dynamic, multi-orientation Psychological Therapies Service. Only applicants with current UKCP or British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) registration in individual psychodynamic psychotherapy should apply.

CIPTS is an established and well respected integrated psychological therapy service in adult secondary care. It comprises Psychodynamic Psychotherapists, CAT Psychotherapists, and Clinical and Counselling Psychologists offering CBT. In addition to assessment and treatment, the team offers consultation and supervision to colleagues in the community assessment and treatment teams.

The post holder will offer assessments and time-limited episodes of individual psychodynamic psychotherapy for adults with complex mental health difficulties living in Croydon. They will receive regular supervision from an experienced psychotherapist. The team provides a rich learning environment with good opportunities for cross-modality working, including regular complex case discussion forums, assessment decision forums, journal and academic meetings, a trauma practice group and team reflective practice. The trust also offers excellent internal CPD opportunities.

The team is currently based at Jeanette Wallace House in Central Croydon and is a ten minute walk from East Croydon Station. Clinical sessions are provided at base and from other locations in Croydon. The post holder will be expected to work across venues.
