Trent PTS provides NHS (IAPT) psychological services across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We have ambitious plans to expand our teams to meet continued demand. We currently have teams in various locations across both counties who work in dedicated psychotherapy centres providing all IAPT approved treatment modalities and are closely aligned to GP practices and university health services. All our teams are expanding but due to internal promotions recently and transfers between locations, we now have an opportunity to recruit for a CBT Therapist based in our Ashbourne clinic.

It is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a team which is looking to offer evidence based psychological interventions aimed at supporting and reflecting the needs of our diverse client group. Our aim is to offer bespoke interventions in a timely manner and therefore we are looking for individuals who have experience of providing therapy in varying domains and at differing levels. Applications from candidates who have experience of working at step 2 and 3 and have also offered these interventions using computer based programmes, skype and telephone would be particularly encouraged. This would enhance our aim of continual growth within the surrounding community by using digital technology and skype type interventions.

All our therapists have a dedicated room and administrative support. Trent PTS is singularly focused on achieving remarkable outcomes for our local populations. We are an organisation that is dynamic, agile and dedicated to making our staff reach and exceed their potential. We have an active continuing professional development programme that we are reviewing and are keen to further increase its emphasis on clinical skills development. Clinical supervision and supervisor groups are at the centre of our clinical governance process, along with partnership developments and creating pathways for vulnerable populations. In the near future we will be developing a leadership programme. As a company we are focused on psychological care, four out of six of our management board have a psychological therapies background. We care about the profession and are dedicated to advancing practice. We offer Agenda for Change terms and conditions because we want the best clinicians working with us to provide the right care to our clients. If you would like to know more about our ethos and values, contact Dean Repper, Clinical Director on drepper@trentpts.co.uk
