We are seeking a part-time (0.8 FTE) Band 7 Clinical or Counselling Psychologist who is interested in working in the London borough of Lambeth with individuals who have experienced episodes of severe mental illness and psychosis.  The clinical presentation is often complex and requires innovative and flexible approaches to psychological care in collaboration with the multi-professional team and clinical partners.

Lambeth has been very progressive and innovative in their approach to working with mentally ill service users.  There is emphasis on working creatively and collaboratively with the service user in the community to live as well as possible.  There is a focus on preventing hospitalisation whenever possible.  There is a strong emphasis on service user empowerment, collaboration and personalisation.  Family interventions are encouraged whenever possible. 

This is a permanent post. This is a unique opportunity for clinicians who are interested in psychiatric rehabilitation, cutting edge clinical practice, the recovery approach to care, and working with complex clinical cases.

We employ around 4,800 people across South London and other sites in the UK. It is a diverse team of talented individuals, spanning a wide range of specialities and benefiting from many world-leading healthcare experts. We deliver more than 14,000 training experiences each year for our staff, providing an extensive range of learning opportunities. Staff can benefit from exceptional professional development opportunities and we will work with you to build your career in mental health. In addition, our working relationship with King's Health Partners allows those working at the Trust to get involved in academic research.

We are committed to helping to develop the people that come to work with us. We know that the Trust can only be as good as the people who work here and we’ll invest in you to maximise that potential. That’s why we really welcome and value people so highly. In short, if you’ve got what it takes we’d be delighted for you to come and work with us.
