Haringey CAMHS is a lively and creative service with a skilled and committed staff group working in a borough with diverse ethnically and culturally communities. The population in Haringey is also socio-economically diverse, with areas of relative affluence and deprivation in the borough.

The service is currently in the process of rethinking the way mental health and emotional wellbeing need is responded to locally, in line with the principles of the I Thrive model.

We are keen to recruit a Family & Systemic Psychotherapist with energy and commitment to contribute to these developments.
You will be offered regular clinical supervision and management support. You will join the regular Family Therapy discipline meeting and there are opportunities to participate in Trust wide Systemic forums and CPD. The Trust will support flexible working hours where appropriate.
