An exciting opportunity for a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist has arisen due to continued expansion of our services. Trent PTS is the largest IAPT provider across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We have an excellent track record of delivering evidence based psychological therapies as part of the local IAPT provision. We provide a high quality, professional and tailored service to people with anxiety and depressive disorders, offering a wider range of treatment choices and easy-access to effective and evidence based psychological therapies.

Due to our on-going expansion, we are recruiting a new Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist for our Derby City Team.

The post is open to Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists currently accredited or holding an accreditable qualification with experience of delivering Primary Care mental health. If you are an engaging, committed and professional therapist, you could work for Trent PTS and help us to continue to provide psychological interventions as part of the National IAPT programme. It is essential that you can conduct high-quality primary care assessments as well as being able to formulate, plan and monitor effective treatment plans for clients with a broad range of common mental health problems with a focus on rehabilitation and patient autonomy.

You will be a highly motivated professional who conforms to evidence based therapy models. You will be able to work autonomously and take the lead in organising your own workload. You will have excellent support from our dedicated administration team and will be part of a dynamic community of therapists.

As an organisation, we invest in our staff to make sure they can continue offering outstanding clinical services. This means that we provide excellent clinical supervision and CPD to meet requirements of continued accreditation. Trent PTS offers a wide range of clinical skills training using internal expertise, external trainers and established post-graduate university courses to ensure that all staff can access a high level of continued professional development opportunities. This includes accredited supervision courses, specific supplementary clinical training such as EMDR and behavioural couples training, ISTDP as well as a variety of clinical skills trainings such as psychosexual practice, working with complex presentations and long-term conditions.
