We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated psychologist to join our specialist complex PTSD pathway. Enfield is a diverse borough, and we take pride in offering specialist, evidence based therapy to clients presenting with complex PTSD. We are a phase-based service, offering a PTSD Psychoeducation and Symptom Management group (in various languages) as well as individual trauma-focussed therapies e.g. Trauma-focussed CBT, NET and EMDR. We would welcome applicants who are trained and experienced in these modalities and will also support applications for further training where required. Specialist EMDR supervision is provided to the team by an experienced external supervisor.
The PTSD team currently sits within Enfield Therapy Service which is a secondary care stand-alone therapy service, however this role will be involved, as part of the wider team, in helping to adapt the existing service within the new transformation process. This process is in response to the NHS 10year plan to develop mental health services round the Primary Care Networks and provides new opportunities which include developing partnership working with the voluntary sector, working more closely with GP practices and developing more innovative, community based and holistic ways of working.
In the new service structure, the PTSD team will remain as a specialist team, offering specialist individual and group therapies, as well as supporting the wider adult pathway in developing more trauma-informed ways of working. We aim to work more closely with community organizations to better understand and meet the needs of populations who may currently be struggling to access services.
We are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Please don’t hesitate to call: Dr Becky Johnson, PTSD Lead, on 0208 702 5011 or email: Rebecca.Johnson13@nhs.net
