Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist 


We are delighted to be able to offer the opportunity to join our innovative Adult Community Mental Health Services in Barnet.  We are looking to recruit a Band 8a Clinical Psychologist to work across a multi-disciplinary mental health team and a specialist Psychology Hub.  The post is split between East Locality Team (Hub 2) and the Barnet Psychology Hub, and is full time (37.5 hours per week) and permanent.

The East Locality Team work involves joint-working and consultation with MDT colleagues, and the undertaking of specialist psychological assessments.  The postholder will join a Band 7 Clinical Psychologist within the locality team, and access supervision from a senior psychologist.  In the Barnet Psychology Hub, the postholder will work into specialist treatment pathways with a range of therapeutic approaches, and across the spectrum of mental health presentations with high levels of complexity - including anxiety and depression, personality disorders, PTSD, and psychosis.  The Psychology Hub provides a range of therapeutic models including CBT, third wave, CAT informed, psychodynamic, and trauma-focused, in both individual and group formats.  Specialist supervision is provided across therapeutic models and presentations to support the delivery of our psychological interventions.

This post is an excellent opportunity to develop skills in a broad range of areas of adult mental health.  In addition, the development of special interests and skills development is well supported and encouraged within the team (e.g. PTSD, psychosis, personality disorder). The Hub model provides a range of opportunities for continuing professional development with access to specialist CBT, integrative, and psychoanalytic models.  In addition, the Trust has launched a CPD programme specifically for Band 7 & 8a psychological therapists which you would be able to access.

We would encourage interested candidates to call and speak to:
