Group Psychotherapist (15 – 22.5 hours per week)

We are looking for an experienced group psychotherapist to join our team to help us build on our current services to survivors. This will include a mix of psychotherapy group work, psychoeducation groups, initial assessments, and some individual psychotherapy work.

The successful candidate will be passionate and committed to helping survivors of trauma and abuse to overcome adversity and make a full recovery. They will already have a track record of working with trauma survivors within a group setting, and navigating the challenges of working with complex emotional needs. They will be resilient, and will have the ability to engage with clients in a way that is authentic, empowering and adapted to their individual needs. They will be willing to challenge limiting or disempowering assumptions, attitudes and behaviours; not only within the client, but within themselves and the wider social context. They will be confident in managing clients exhibiting high-risk behaviours, and will have the capacity and care needed to connect and stay with them in their distress and mess.

  • Experience of working with survivors of trauma and abuse, with a particular emphasis on clients who are dissociative and/or who have other complex mental health needs.
  • Experience facilitating therapeutic and psychoeducation groups.
  • The ability to work in an integrative way, rather than being confined to a single therapeutic modality.
  • 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.
  • An enhanced DBS certificate for work with vulnerable adults.

Location:

The post-holder will work mainly at the Breakthrough Support Centre in Bath. From time to time they may be asked to work from other locations.
