Psychosis & Psychological Therapies Pathways

 Haringey Community Services: Central Locality Team

 Clinical or Counselling Psychologist - Band 7, 0.8 WTE

We are looking for a creative, innovative and enthusiastic Clinical or Counselling Psychologist to join Haringey Adult Community Services. This Psychologist post is split between the Psychosis Pathway (0.6 WTE) and the Psychological Therapies Pathway (0.2 WTE) and is located in the Central Locality Team.

Our Service: Haringey Adult Community Services aims to promote excellence and innovation in the provision of care to patients with challenging and complex presentations.  A range of new approaches have been developed within Haringey, including Mentalisation Based Therapy and Open Dialogue. We also have considerable experience in providing and hosting training, ranging from clinical placements for a variety of professionals to organised training events, such as the North London CAT Practitioner Course.

Psychosis Pathway:

 This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a supportive, reflective and creative psychological therapies team. The Psychosis Pathway aims for the timely delivery of innovative and evidence-based psychological interventions by appropriately trained and supervised staff. It is informed by the current evidence base and by best practice guidelines. The pathway determines the psychological interventions that people experiencing psychosis can expect during different phases of their care from assessment, through to treatment delivery, training and provision of clinical supervision, to discharge from secondary care services. While CBT for Psychosis and Family work are core elements of the provision, we are interested in the application of other approaches, such as CAT, CFT, ACT and Mindfulness, where appropriate. We are also in the process of establishing a Group programme, to which you will be expected to contribute. The pathway operates for all people experiencing psychosis in Haringey regardless of the care team providing the service.

Psychological Therapies Pathway:

 Haringey Community Services offers outpatient Psychological Therapies provision. We are fortunate to have Psychologists working from a range of psychological models and we offer stand-alone treatments from modalities, such as CBT, CAT, EMDR, ACT, Systemic, Psychodynamic and Group Psychotherapy. Psychological Therapies provision within Haringey has a history of excellence and we have over 20 Psychologists and Psychological Therapists working within adult mental health services, all based at St Ann’s Hospital. Part of your role will involve delivering individual psychological assessments and therapy using an approach such as CBT or CAT. We believe in the importance of supervision, development and providing nurturing and supportive networks to allow Psychologists to grow. There is significant opportunity for learning and development, and the Trust has an excellent Psychology CPD training calendar, involving various trainings on a monthly rota.

Central Locality Team:

 This post will be located in the Central Locality Team; one of four community mental health teams, which currently provide secondary mental health care to adults in Haringey with a range of complex and challenging mental health difficulties. It is a multi-disciplinary team staffed by Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Nurses, and Occupational Therapists. Therefore, in addition to the clinical work in the treatment pathways outlined above, the post holder will also be expected to play an important role in ensuring that all aspects of care in the locality team are psychologically informed. An aptitude and interest in working collaboratively and respectfully in multi-disciplinary teams is thus essential.

The post holder must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Interested candidates would be very welcome to make contact for an informal discussion.
