We are committed to providing high quality care for the people of Bradford, Airedale and Craven. Are You?

As a provider of care for people of all ages who have mental and/or community health needs we are dedicated to providing a high-quality service, close to where people live and as much as possible tailored to an individual’s needs.

High Intensity CBT Therapist (IAPT)

This is an exciting opportunity for a High Intensity CBT Therapist to join MyWellbeing College - an established forward-thinking ‘Improving Access to Psychological Therapies’ (IAPT) service. These vacancies are based within the City team and the Aire Wharfe Craven team, however you may be expected to provide input across the other areas of the Bradford district as well.

We are looking for people who have the enthusiasm and skills to join our Bradford District Care Trust service and who are committed to making a difference within Primary Care and the wider community.

You will be providing CBT and other NICE recommended High Intensity interventions, for a range of common mental health problems (anxiety & depression). You will be on an IAPT accredited CBT training course, or already accredited with the BABCP.

You will be expected to work well with others, whilst also being able to deliver an autonomous service, operating within recognised professional guidelines.

There are potential opportunities within this role to develop, and deliver other evidence-based treatment for clients, as part of ongoing service developments.

You will receive regular 1:1, as well as group supervision in order to develop your clinical skills further. MyWellbeing College is dedicated to clinical excellence. All our staff have access to our bi-annual CPD conference and regular in-house CBT related training in addition to individualised CPD, via our appraisal process.

To support this process we need people who share our excitement, embrace different ways of working and new technologies and are able to work flexibly across organisational boundaries.

 As an associated teaching NHS Trust, Bradford District Care Foundation Trust is committed to supporting high quality research that will enable us to deliver excellent, evidence-based care to our service users. We support all our staff to be actively involved in evidence based practice and research as part of their personal development.
