CBT Practitioner

We are looking to recruit the first CBT Practitioner for Branches Hostel. You will provide an enhanced level of mental health support for people living in the hostel and during their transition to independent living, through one-one counselling and group support sessions. Some of the people you will be working with will have complex, high support needs including clinical mental health diagnoses, and drug and alcohol dependencies.

As clinical lead, you will be a highly skilled counsellor/practitioner with experience of working with vulnerable clients. You will have a Diploma in Counselling/Psychotherapy and registered with the BACP, or equivalent.  Preferably, you will be an accredited member of the BABCP, or equivalent organisation.  As important as your qualifications are your abilities to blend therapeutic work with a pragmatic approach, and work flexibly with individuals.

The postholder will understand the complexities of trauma, mental health, drug and/or alcohol dependency, and barriers to support experienced by homeless people.

What we offer

In return for your experience and commitment, our offer includes a salary of £40,000 per annum rising to £45,000; 22 days annual leave increasing to 25 days, plus bank holidays; clinical supervision; and up to 8% employer’s pension.
