You will offer a wide range of treatments, including telephone and online treatment, computerised cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programmes, psycho-educational groups, courses, workshops, webinars, and one-to-one work.

We are looking for dynamic, compassionate clinicians who want to work in a progressive team, to drive positive patient experiences and improve access rates across all of our services.
