An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time Psychology
Practitioner/CBT Therapist to work in Primary Care Adult Mental Health in
North Aberdeenshire.  

This post is primarily aimed at providing a service for adults with common mild
to moderate mental health problems  (Tier 2) presenting in Primary Care.
The postholder will join 2 other Psychological Therapists already in post in
North Aberdeenshire. The posts are supported by clinical supervision and
professional management from a Clinical/Counselling Psychologist at Royal Cornhill
Hospital, Aberdeen and will be line managed by the Health & Social Care
Partnership Locality Leadership Manager. Work will primarily be conducted
within GP surgeries or other Primary Care health facilities. The post holder
will provide a service within the Banff and Buchan Locality, North Aberdeenshire
working in conjunction with the existing multidisciplinary Primary Care
Mental Health Team.

The role will involve assessing and providing psychological therapy for
patients with a range of mild to moderate mental health problems including
depression and a range of anxiety disorders. These interventions will be in
line with best practice as identified by The Matrix. There will also be an
expectation that the post holder will develop strong links with Social Care and
Third Sector partners. 

The post holder will have high level skills in psychological therapy, having
obtained, for example, an MSc in Psychological Therapy in Primary Care or a PG
Diploma in CBT (or equivalent, see Person Specification for more details).
 Post qualification experience would be desirable but is not essential,
providing their training has included substantial clinical placement practice. Current trainees are encouraged to apply.

As this post covers a wide geographical area a
driving license and access to a car are essential.

This post, which offers the opportunity to advance your career in an area of
outstanding natural beauty, is based in the Fraserburgh area and is close to the
Cairngorms and Aberdeen, a lovely granite city set on stunning coastline
populated by dolphins. For those with family Aberdeen boasts some of the best
schools in Scotland whilst the local economy provides a range of job
opportunities for partners. Aberdeen is situated in the North East of Scotland
but with an easily accessible airport just fifteen minutes from the city centre
it is no problem to stay connected to the whole of the UK and beyond.
