This post requires less clinical experience at entry but could provide the relevant experience to access a High Intensity CBT training course once after 2 years post qualification in post.

An essential part of both roles will be good communication skills particularly with someone in distress. It is useful although not essential to have knowledge of the IAPTus system or be willing to undertake training in this area.

Successful candidates will have strong communication and time management skills and respect individual rights to confidentiality.
