The post holders would provide a qualified specialist clinical psychology service to children and adolescents in Ealing Tier 2 CAMHS aged 0 -18 and their families, across all sectors of care; providing specialist psychological assessment and therapy at the same time as offering advice and consultation on clients' psychological care to non-psychologist colleagues and to other, non-professional carers, working autonomously within professional guidelines and the overall framework of the team's policies and procedures.

We work in creative and flexible ways to meet the needs of families who present with a wide range of difficulties, often working in partnership with agencies such as education and social care. We are a small and friendly CAMHS who offer good opportunities for CPD.
