At Turning Point, we support people across England with mental health issues. We make a real difference to their lives as we introduce them to the personal, flexible support they may need to improve the quality of their lives in their communities. Passionate about people, you'll enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own career too, as you gain the experience, training, and education you need to progress in your career with us.

Our Complex Emotional Needs (CEN) service is comprised of a friendly and committed team who is passionate about working with, and advocating for, people experiencing significant mental health difficulties in the Nottingham area. The service delivers an evidence-based, and compassionate approach to those in our communities with difficulties often associated with a Personality Disorder diagnosis. You will be part of a wider team consisting of Assistant Psychologists and Peer Support Workers and be regularly supervised by a Practitioner Psychologist.

The role

You will support the delivery of a structured, and skills-based program based on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and offer support to individuals experiencing emotional dysregulation and other difficulties often associated with a Personality Disorder diagnosis.

You will be providing evidence based, individual and group sessions, and support for people accessing our service utilizing face-to-face, telephone, and digital technology (MS Teams) formats. You will also be carrying out comprehensive psychological assessments as well as assisting the team with developing risk formulations under the supervision of a Practitioner Psychologist. We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and motivated to work with our team to ensure individuals have access to high quality, evidence-based support in line with Turning Point’s policies and procedures and relevant professional guidelines.

The ideal candidate

Having an upper second-class honours degree in Psychology and eligibility for graduate membership with the British Psychological Society would be essential.

You will also have experience working with individuals experiencing mental health difficulties and delivering psychosocial interventions (individually or in groups). Being able to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, having a good understanding of how to conduct psychological assessments including risk formulation as well as managing your workload independently would also be important. On a practical level, you will have excellent organisational skills, effective communication, and a willingness to be flexible in your approach.

Having further knowledge and skills base of working with individuals with a diagnosis of Personality Disorder or emotional regulation difficulties would be an advantage.
