Vacancies at Breakthrough

Team Psychotherapist (0.5)

Trauma Breakthrough (also known as Breakthrough) is a small but growing charity that supports adult survivors of childhood abuse and trauma. We are based in Bath, and will be opening a hub in Salisbury in Autumn 2020. We offer specialist individual and group therapy, support and befriending, as well as training for organisations and individuals caring for survivors. The charity has a strong community ethos and believes that engaging service-users in all aspects of the life of the charity is often an important part of their recovery.

We’re looking for an approachable, friendly, forward-thinking and proactive psychotherapist to join our team, to help deliver existing clinical services, and as the charity grows, to help us develop new projects.

As this is a varied and developing role, there is considerable scope for the successful candidate to bring their own particular interests and expertise to the charity.

Experience of working psychotherapeutically with trauma and abuse is essential. The post would suit someone wishing to deepen their existing experience in this challenging area of clinical work.

The post holder will be accredited with the UKCP or BACP, or equivalent and will work within the codes of practice of the relevant body.


The post-holder will work primarily in Bath with the possibility of some work in other locations as new projects are started.


This post is initially offered on a fixed-term 1-year, part-time contract for 20 hours per week, with a 3 month probationary period. There may be some scope for these hours to be extended as funding permits.

The contract may also be extended, renewed or made permanent, depending on future funding.


The salary scale is from £34,500 to £36,500 per year (pro-rata) depending on training and experience

Closing Date
