An exciting opportunity has arisen in HPFT CAMHS North Tier 3 Team, based in Stevenage, for an enthusiastic Band 7 Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. We would be pleased to consider applications from newly qualified Child Psychotherapists, or those qualifying by September 2021.

 

The successful candidate will have a keen interest in working collaboratively with children and their families and with partner agencies to promote positive outcomes for children and families in Hertfordshire. The successful candidate will have a role in offering core interventions as well as specialist psychotherapy interventions to children and adolescents and their families, and consultation to the team and professional networks. They will work alongside more senior psychotherapists, both within the team and county wide, who are committed to supporting professional development and with a trainee Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist currently on placement in the team. They would attend regular county wide psychotherapy meetings.

 

We would welcome initial, informal discussions about the post. Please contact John Eveson (Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist), Tara Pepper Goldsmith (Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist) or Charlotte Train (CAMHS Manager) on 01438 792600.

 

The HPFT CAMHS service has been at the forefront of national developments in CAMHS, and Hertfordshire is both an i-Thrive accelerator and schools link pilot site. We are fortunate to work alongside four community based ‘tier 3’ teams, a crisis assessment/treatment team (C-CATT), an Eating Disorder Team, an inpatient unit (Forest House), and a Targeted Team for looked after or adopted children. We also have a Home Treatment Team and DBT service. We offer a range of psychological therapies across these teams. We have close links with other agencies including the local ‘tier 2’ CAMHS service, school link workers and children’s social services.

 

The successful candidate must be eligible for membership of the Association of Child Psychotherapists. Stevenage is a short train journey from London Kings Cross station and we are located in close proximity to the train station.
