About the role

Self Help is a user led mental health charity that has developed considerable expertise in the field of primary care mental health. We currently deliver a range of services including self-help support groups, counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The charity is funded by various NHS Trusts and works across the North West with the Head Office based in Hulme, Manchester.

We are looking for motivated counsellors to join our expanding psychological wellbeing service in Manchester. The post holders will work alongside a team of psychological wellbeing practitioners, counsellors and eTherapy coordinators – within a stepped care model – to provide a range of NICE approved low intensity interventions for depression and anxiety disorders. Treatment will be delivered through a range of modalities including face-to-face work and telephone therapy.

The successful candidate will be a skilled, person-centred or integrative counsellor, who is highly motivated with the ability to organise and prioritise their own workload. Preferably, you will have experience of working within an IAPT programme. Additional training in third wave CBTapproaches, such as acceptance and commitment therapy, is desirable.
