The patients can also present with co-morbid attachment difficulties, ASC (both diagnosed and undiagnosed) and with emotion regulation difficulties.

You will be joining an established and passionate psychology team, whilst also contributing to the development of an individualized and patient-centred service committed to improving clinical practice and effectiveness.

Key responsibilities for the Clinical Psychologist role:

  • Providing specialist psychological assessments, and individualised evidence-based psychological interventions for patients with severe eating disorders and complex mental health difficulties.
  • Providing evidence-based and formulation-driven psychological perspectives to multidisciplinary risk management, care planning and decision-making.
  • Managing a complex caseload as an individual psychological therapist working within a multidisciplinary team, in addition to facilitating group psychological interventions and family/systemic interventions.
  • Monitoring clinical progress through regular reviews of psychological treatment.
  • Providing high-quality clinical supervision to junior members of the psychology team.
  • Supporting staff development through the provision of training, consultation, formulation meetings and reflective practice sessions.

  • Knowledge and understanding of eating disorders and related comorbidities (e.g. anxiety, trauma, depression, self-harm), and the impact these on both children and adolescents, and their families.
  • Prior experience in eating disorders is desirable but not essential for this position. Experience working with patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, neurodivergence, trauma and personality disorders is also desirable.
  • Post qualification training in the specialist application of therapeutic models relevant for working with children and adolescents with eating disorders and other comorbidities (or for newly qualified psychologists an interest in undertaking further specialist training).
  • Experience of supervising and training junior members of the team.
  • Experience of exercising full clinical responsibility for patient's psychological care and treatment as a qualified professional within the context of a multidisciplinary care plan.
