Vacancy for Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT)

Band 6, Permanent, 37.5 Hours Per Week

Based at Dudley Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), The Elms Health Centre, Slade Road, Halesowen, B63 2UR

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist to be instrumental in delivering an effective service as part of the Dudley CAMHS Service. We are an energetic and hardworking team working with children and young people from the age of 0-16.  We are a fully integrated multi-disciplinary team comprising Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Family Therapists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Social Worker, Psychiatrists and Youth Offending Team.  The team also takes a range of students on practice placements.

We are looking for a CBT Therapist who can demonstrate a passion and commitment to working with children and young people whilst implementing their CBT skills.  They will need to be highly trained in mental health and CBT. They will deliver a ‘think family’ approach ensuring that all services working with the families are co-ordinated and work effectively together whilst maintaining the focus upon the safety and wellbeing of the children and young people. 

CAMHS professionals deal with a wide range of mental health problems. Many children and young people are troubled by emotional, behavioural and psychiatric problems.  These can cause worry and distress both to themselves and to those who care for them.  A large part of the CAMHS professionals’ work is to identify the problem, understand the causes and advise about what may help.

Our team has recently achieved Outstanding in the Caring domain from CQC, as a team we are very proud of this. We are seeking an individual who shares this commitment to caring.
