Job Advert Role Description

We are looking for a Sessional DBT Skills Therapist to join our Outpatient Team. We currently run a very successfully attended 26 week outpatient DBT group to service users with needs such as Depression, Anxiety, Emotion Dysregulation, and Trauma. The successful candidate would be expected to see a minimum of 4 clients per week, for individual sessions to run alongside their attendance in the group. The clinician must adhere to all clinical duties including documentation keeping, liaising with the wider MDT and external services if needed and completing necessary processes using Priory Systems. The candidate will also be required to attend out weekly DBT Consult.

Successful candidates would be registered and preferably Accredited with a governing body such as the BABCP. Specialisms such as EMDR are desirable to support some of our more complex referrals.

As a Sessional DBT Skills Therapist, you will be expected to consider referrals of a higher complexity at times such as clients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Bipolar Disorder.

At Altrincham you will be part of a large team and will work alongside Therapists, Psychologists, Consultant Psychiatrists, Nurses, Catering Teams and more. Although this role is for our Outpatient Service, this does not limit the experience and day to day contact you will have with other professionals. As our services grow, so do our opportunities.
