London wide Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (IAPT) for CBT High Intensity Therapists

jobsPsychological therapy services across London are now recruiting CBT High Intensity Trainees as part of the IAPT programme. These services deliver evidence based psychological therapies for people with anxiety and depression.

Are you an experienced mental health or social care worker with a recognised professional qualification working in a mental health setting? Have you considered training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)?

Applications are invited from qualified clinical or counselling psychological therapists, Mental Health Nurses, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers and Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners to apply for the one year full-time IAPT post graduate diploma courses based at King’s College London and Royal Holloway.

Applicants without a core mental health profession (such as Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner or counsellors without UKCP or BACP accreditation) must be able to meet the required KSA process criteria (see the IAPT website for more information).

The training programme consists of three days working within an IAPT service and two days at university taught by experts in the field. The majority of training posts are offered at NHS band 6, with a few band 7 posts offered by some services.

Further information including the High Intensity Therapist information pack and the application process can be found on the KCL PGDip website;
