About The Role

We are currently seeking an experienced Family and Systemic Psychotherapist to join our friendly and our well-established therapies team.  Currently we comprise Clinical and Counselling Psychologists, Assistant Psychologists, Family Therapists and Systemic Practitioners, Dieticians, Physiotherapists, Creative Therapists, and Occupational Therapists and would like to hear from individuals who would welcome opportunities to work with us to provide the best possible care for our young people.

 

Huntercombe Hospital Maidenhead is the UKs largest specialist Hospital for inpatient CAMHS, serving NHS funded patients, and these positions present an opportunity to work with a leading team in child and adolescent mental health.  We support young people who are experiencing significant mental health difficulties requiring inpatient admission.  We have a total of 60 beds across four wards: 2 PICU wards (Psychiatric Intensive Care), one GAU (General Adolescent Unit), and one Specialist Eating Disorder Ward. 

 

The Huntercombe group is one of the country’s leading specialist healthcare providers, with hospitals and centres throughout England and Scotland, delivering wide-ranging services in adult mental health and learning disabilities, specialist brain injury, and child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) including services for those with eating disorders and social care for children with additional needs. Our aspiration is to nurture the world, one person at a time and that’s why everything we do is designed to provide the best care and recovery for our patients and residents.

 

The successful applicant will be an experienced Family and Systemic Psychotherapist keen to apply their existing skills to working in a Tier 4 setting with young people and their families.  They will be interested in the application of evidence-based approaches to our population and keen to engage in evidence-generating practice throughout the hospital and across the Huntercombe Group.  The applicant will value working as part of a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and will understand the importance of working alongside MDTs to achieve the best possible outcomes for young people.

 

We are seeking to recruit a practitioner who has demonstrable skills in engaging young people and families and working in a person-centred way to support them in achieving their goals.  The applicant will recognise the value of working with the wider MDT to ensure that a shared formulation is held in young people’s professional networks both within and outside the hospital.  The successful applicant will have a strong commitment to advocating for young people and families and ensuring that their needs and wishes remain at the centre of their care plans.

 

The successful applicant will have contributed to service development and service evaluation and have a clear interest in doing so in an ongoing way.  This might include structured service evaluation/audit and small-scale research projects.  The successful applicant will be expected to work alongside members of the MDT to consider how the positive work being undertaken on the ward can be evidenced for all stakeholders.

 

As an experienced therapist the post-holder will be expected to work at an appropriate level of autonomy and be involved in day-to-day decision making on the ward and within the therapies team.  The applicant will have line-management and supervision responsibilities within their role and will have had experience of providing clinical supervision to others.
