Clinical / Counselling Psychologist role description

Fernwood Clinic will offer one-to-one therapy and group workshops. We are in the process of renovating our dedicated commercial premises in central Balham (South London), with the view to open in mid-December 2015. Referrals are generated through a variety of channels, and we encourage self referrals through extensive local marketing.

You will be part of a small team of Psychologists working with clients from the local community. As well as seeing a variety of adult clients, you will be involved in shaping the Practice's service and further developing clinical governance procedures. You will have a high degree of independence in choosing the appropriate treatment course for your client and be able to benefit from flexible working hours. All appointments, reminders and client administration is fully managed by Fernwood Clinic, so that you can focus on doing what you love.

The role would be suitable for a well-rounded, self-motivated generalist with experience of some or all of the following common mental health conditions:

• Depression

• Solution focused therapies
• Eye movement desensitising and reprocessing


• Doctorate in Clinical Psychology or Counselling Psychology
• Registered with HCPC as a clinical /counselling psychologist
• Will have been practising as a BPS Chartered member for at least 3 years


• Hold a reference from your regular supervisor who should be experienced, preferably an accredited supervisor (BPS Chartered Psychologist), to verify your training, experience and supervision levels

We welcome applications from candidates who would like to work flexible hours, as well as standard hours. The Clinic's opening hours are 10am-8pm Tuesday to Friday and 9am-5pm on Saturday. Please indicate the preferred hours (at least 10 hours a week) and whether you are able to work evenings and weekends.

Salary is £40-£50 per hour depending on experience (this includes a 50min client session plus basic record keeping) plus appropriate supervision. This role is offered on a self employed basis but we can process your taxes for you via PAYE if preferred.

Please send your CV and a cover note to by the 12th of December 2015. Interviews will take place and offers will be made on an ongoing basis.
