We are looking for a therapist to provide highly specialist cognitive behaviour therapy as part of our new service for parents (male or female), who are pregnant, or who have a child aged 0-3, and have an anxiety disorder. The service will offer an excellent assessment and treatment service to these patients, both local and national.

This represents an exciting innovation in this area, as the service will be providing treatment not only to mothers, and will also assist parents with older children (up to 3) beyond the usual perinatal cut-off of 1 year of age. Our clinic also specialises in providing intensive psychological treatments over condensed time periods, which we have demonstrated is an excellent fit for these parents. Post Holders will also contribute to our evening clinic, IAPT and Patient Choice work as required.

You will be expected to deliver high quality CBT, to provide clinical supervision and consultation as appropriate, and to contribute to service evaluation, research and policy development, inter alia. You will be expected to have knowledge and significant interest in working with patients who are parents and be able to deliver appropriately tailored interventions for this group. We are also actively looking for skilled clinicians who want to sharpen their skills in this specialised area. 

The Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma’s remit includes the delivery and dissemination of empirically validated cognitive-behavioural treatments for panic disorder, social phobia, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and body dysmorphic disorder.

The clinic provides a model of best practice in the integration of research, development and clinical treatment. Most of the treatments delivered were developed by former directors of the clinic and are considered to be at the cutting edge of developments in the field.

Post holders will be required to work a minimum of one evening a week, from 4:45pm to 8:30pm, in addition to other standard daytime hours in the clinic. Secondments and job shares will be considered, however you must be able to work the minimum of one evening a week.
