We are looking to recruit 14 Trainee Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners to join WithYou’s Kent and Medway NHS Talking Therapies. WithYou is a leading national charity providing evidence-based support for mental health, substance use, and family services across the UK.

We will provide you with the experience you need to learn the therapeutic skills to support clients with common mental health difficulties on their journey to recovery. You will be part of a supportive team of highly experienced practitioners and leaders, who are passionate about making a difference to people's lives. In addition, this exciting role includes an NHS funded Postgraduate Certificate Advanced Practice in Psychological Wellbeing with the University of Surrey, which will give you the skills to deliver low intensity Guided Self Help interventions for people suffering with symptoms of anxiety and depression.

The role will start in between March - April 2024 (specific date TBC) with your trainee year running to March - April 2025. The position is a permanent contract, with a pay reward upon successful completion of the training when you move into the qualified PWP role. The role is full time (37.5 hours per week).
