An exciting opportunity has arisen for experienced CBT Therapists to work with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind on a self-employed basis to support adults, children and adolescents across Hull and the East Riding.

Essential Criteria

These are criteria all applicants MUST be able to demonstrate either at short listing or at interview. Applicants should therefore make it clear within their application whether or not they meet these criteria. Failure to do so may result in you not being shortlisted. The criteria are stated below:

  • Post-graduate Doctorate level training in Clinical or Counselling Psychology or Post-graduate diploma course accredited with the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)
  • Have completed regular supervision post-qualifying for CBT practice with a BABCP accredited supervisor and engaged in regular supervision for CBT practice.

This is a freelance role and applicants must be able to commit to a minimum of one evening per week. Successful candidates will offer weekly therapy sessions to young people aged 10-18 years and adults, in addition to providing parental support.

The young people / adults you will be working with typically present with anxiety, low mood or behavioural management difficulties. Causes of anxiety include separation anxiety, exam stress, social phobia, difficulties relating to peers, OCD and worry. Behavioural difficulties can be related to learning difficulties which make concentrating on tasks more difficult and can lead to anxiety, low self-esteem, frustration and anger.
