Psychological Well-being Practitioner

Job Description

Everyone’s Turning Point is unique. It’s the moment when they realise they’ve made a small, but important, step forward. Very often, that small step is the start of something bigger. But only when the right support, advice and services are in place. That’s where you come in, working as part of Rightsteps®, our highly successful and innovative ‘Improving Access to Psychological Therapies’ (IAPT) delivery model.

We support people who are having difficulty in coping and who may be suffering from a common mental illness such as depression, anxiety or phobia. Our approach embeds the notion of well-being and recovery and promotes personal responsibility for lifestyle choices and self-management of mental well-being. Uniquely, we offer a wide range of interventions which includes workshops, groups, face to face, telephone work and offering therapy via a digital platform which means we are able to provide a highly accessible service that is both user-friendly and capable of meeting the needs of a geographically dispersed client group. The result is an incredibly stimulating career environment where you will not only have the satisfaction of making your skills available to those who need them most. You will also have access to outstanding training and career development resources within our highly supportive team and the ability to work flexibly.

On a day-to-day basis this will mean accepting referrals via agreed protocols and supporting those people in the self-management of their recovery. You’ll ensure that unsuitable referrals are passed on effectively to the relevant service. What’s more, it will also be up to you to maintain coherent records of all clinical activity in line with service protocols.

Right now we are looking to recruit a qualified Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners for our new and exciting Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City service. For the role you must have a Diploma in Low Intensity Psychological Interventions or equivalent, or be a qualified graduate mental health worker with relevant primary care experience. In either case you should have a successful track record of delivering CBT based interventions to people suffering with anxiety and depression and have worked in target driven services demonstrating clinical outcomes. With a clear understanding of IAPT, it goes without saying that you will also need outstanding telephone and written communication skills, as well as the ability to manage high volumes of clients effectively within this stepped model of care.

If you’re inspired by the social model of mental health that works holistically according to need rather than diagnosis and would like to help us achieve our vision, we can offer a competitive remuneration package and excellent training and development opportunities.

You will be required to work on a rota and outreach basis which includes Monday to Saturdays.

For further information or queries about the role please contact our clinical recruiter Rich on  ( Phone number removed ) .
