Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust work alongside Coventry and Warwickshire MIND to deliver the IAPT service. An exciting opportunity currently exists for a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner to work within the South Warwickshire IAPT service based in Stratford Upon Avon.

PWP’s represent a valued part of the IAPT workforce that has been developed to help lead in the provision of psychological interventions in Primary Care for individuals presenting with common mental health problems.

The successful candidates must have the Post Graduate Diploma in Low Intensity Interventions or be working towards this. They will also have experience of working with common mental health problems, be able to provide initial assessments of client need including risk assessment and deliver a range of evidence-based, high volume, low-intensity psychological interventions based on a self-management model. The range of interventions will include both individual and group work and the candidates must be confident and competent in delivering interventions using a variety of communication mediums such as telephone work and face-to-face activities.

You must have excellent communication/interpersonal skills and be able to work on your own initiative as well as within a team.
