Job description

Ormiston Families’ Point 1 Service

Full-time, 37.5 hours per week

Based in Norwich with weekly travel to Kings Lynn and North Norfolk

This is an exciting opportunity to join Point 1 following the establishment of the new Mental Health Team in Schools.

The Lead Therapist will be a senior member of the team working with children, young people, families and education staff; assessing and supporting the mental health and well-being of children, young people and families. The post holder is responsible for ensuring the teams fulfil their core offer of services whilst maintaining a clinical input within their role supporting CYP with the most complex needs. 

This post comes with a mandatory 1-year parallel supervisor training programme at the University of East Anglia requiring successful completion for this role. The role of the Senior Therapist within MHSTs is pivotal with high-quality supervision of trainee practitioners being key to ensuring the successful delivery and sustainability of the MHSTs. It is expected that a ‘Community of Children and Young People’s MHST supervisors will evolve, which will become a growing resource to facilitate the development of MHSTs across a wider region beyond a given CCG footprint, and this will provide further support into the future for the sustainability of the EMHP programme.

As the post holder you will have interest and ability to contribute to service development. You will have experience of working with children, young people and parents presenting with a range of mental health difficulties and challenging behaviour. You will also have previous experience of delivering CBT-informed supervision and a professional qualification in mental health and registration.
