An exciting opportunity has arisen within Dorset HealthCare for a dynamic CBT Lead to join our Poole Dorset Steps to Wellbeing (IAPT) Service. Dorset HealthCare’s Steps to Wellbeing services are some of the country’s leading Improving Access to Psychological Therapy services, and this would be a great opportunity for an experienced clinician with excellent clinical leadership and CBT skills.

The Dorset Steps to Wellbeing Service is a high performing, high volume service with a dedicated team of clinicians and administrators working across both urban and rural Dorset.

You will be joining the current team at an exciting time of development; as part of the Five Year Forward View, the service is expanding to work with people who have Long Term Health Conditions. The service has also recently expanded its provision of an integrated employment service.

The successful candidate will need to be able to build strong relationships with staff and support their development and supervision needs, work with the Lead to engage stakeholders across a range of providers, including both acute hospitals and community and GP providers, and third sector organisations and ensure that the service continues to adhere to a number of challenging targets whilst maintaining the highest quality care for our patients.

You will be well supported within a team of experienced clinicians and managers and be part of the wider Steps to well-being leadership team within the Directorate of Mental Health and Learning Disabilities.

The successful candidate would be expected to provide a limited caseload offering complex assessment, psychological therapy, advice and consultation on case management. Therefore we are looking for a candidate who is professionally accredited with BABCP.

In return we can also offer you:
