Job Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic Applied Psychologist (with a Health/Counselling/Clinical background) to join our supportive Health Psychology Service. This service provides psychological support to patients in a clinical health setting and therefore the candidate needs to have a keen interest and/or knowledge base, working with Pain or physical/somatic presentations and mind-body processes.
Working autonomously within professional guidelines and the departmental and NHS policies and procedures, the post holder will provide specialist assessment and interventions in both individual and group formats in the clinic and the community. Those with a keen interest in working in this area and working holistically are encouraged to apply.
We work closely with our Hospital Pain team and the post holder will be expected to offer psychological insight and knowledge, and advise non-psychology staff on psychological principles and psychological understanding of distressed patients and their families within this context.
The post holder will be required to participate in service development and contribute to a clinical governance agenda for the service. Audit activity would be expected and there are opportunities for teaching and research. Qualified or those in their final year of training are encouraged to make contact and/or visit to discuss job/placement opportunities.
