Band 7 Clinical or Counselling Psychologist

Camden and Islington NHS FT

Full-time Post (37.5 hours)

We are looking to appoint a clinical or counselling psychologist with an interest in systemic and CBT therapies to join Camden Parents’ Wellbeing Service (a parental mental health service in Camden). Camden Parents’ Wellbeing Service was established in 2006 in acknowledgement of the adverse impact of poor parental mental health upon children’s wellbeing. The team has historically worked with the parents of children known to the local CAMHS services who were identified as having mental health needs, and with parents identified through adult mental health services, children’s centres and other local agencies. The successful candidate will join two multi-disciplinary services, one at MOSAIC (a CAMHS service for children with disabilities) and Families in Focus (a service for families in Camden). Camden Parents’ Wellbeing Service is a small virtual team of psychologists offering interventions to parents in different settings and working to raise awareness of the profile of parental mental health through consultations, training and supervision.
