The Department of Wellbeing, Therapeutic and Residential Life Services, within the Directorate for the Student Experience, is seeking to appoint up a clinical practitioner to the role of Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist.

The successful candidate will have a post-graduate level counselling/therapeutic qualification; current accreditation as a counsellor/psychotherapist with BACP, UKCP, or BCP in addition to relevant experience of brief therapy and group-work in a similar organisational setting. You will need to provide your accreditation / registration certificate at interview.

The University Therapeutic Service is part of a larger multi-disciplinary team focusing on student mental health, encompassing student wellbeing more widely, and including residential life. You will be joining a team of experienced therapists and a number of post-qualified and trainee Counsellors. Each year, over 2000 students are seen for counselling or therapy, either individually, or in workshops offering strategies for managing in different situations.

You will utilise a range of therapeutic interventions and techniques appropriate to the needs of the students, provide short-term focussed therapeutic and wellbeing interventions for students working as part of an integrated Student Experience Division. You will manage student cases collaborating and consulting with the wider divisional staff including disability support, as well as NHS professionals as required, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students. Your contribution to the delivery of proactive initiatives around mental health and wellbeing as part of the wider mental health strategy will be critical in the development of the service.

An innovative, risk conscious approach, sound judgement and diplomacy, as well as the ability to work under pressure within a complex organisational structure are essential attributes required of the post holder.

Excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to build relationships, respect confidentiality, and be able to navigate complex situations in a sensitive and professional manner will be required. Highly developed written and oral communication skills are essential as well as a positive and flexible approach to the role and the service.

We have added telephone and video consultations to our offer, but our aim is to work on the University campus to deliver the mainly face-to-face therapy students desire.. Experience of working online/by telephone is essential.
