Are you a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, clinical or counselling psychologist with substantial experience in counselling and/or psychotherapy?

Would you like to work within a multi-disciplinary Counselling and Wellbeing Team supporting students to reach their full potential?

Do you have an understanding of the needs and priorities of counselling and wellbeing services in Higher Educational settings?

Student Counselling and Wellbeing is part of the Student Education Service and provides a wide range of excellent and innovative support to help students manage psychological, emotional and mental health difficulties whilst at University.  As part of the University’s commitment to delivering an exceptional student experience, and in recognition of its critical role in supporting students, Student Counselling and Wellbeing has received significant investment and are recruiting additional staff.

Student Counselling and Wellbeing is a large multi-disciplinary team that supports students through primarily time limited, focused interventions. In addition to individual appointments the service offers a comprehensive groups and psychoeducational workshop programme; same day support in partnership with Leeds University Union; a Clinical Consultation and Guidance service for University staff and critical incident response and support.

You will be committed to working collaboratively within a multi-disciplinary team, confident in clinical assessment and risk management, and it is essential that you are enthusiastic about focused, short-term interventions in both counselling and wider wellbeing and mental health support.

You must hold a professional level counselling or psychotherapy qualification in any modality to diploma/masters level and be fully accredited by BACP, UKCP or BABCP. Clinical or counselling psychologists must have achieved chartered status with BPS and be registered with HCPC.

Please note BACP membership or registration without accreditation is not sufficient.
