You can achieve more at St Andrew’s Healthcare

We are St Andrew's. We are a mental health Charity and our purpose is to inspire hope for those living with complex mental health needs. 

This service is part of our Community Partnerships Division who had their CQC rating as good.

We are seeking a Qualified Psychologist who can support us within our Clinic and private therapy services.   We are based in in Northampton where the majority of sessions take place however we have a growing on-line clinic and ambitions to further expand the services we offer during 2024.  Apart from expanding our existing therapy provision, we are also planning to offer a DBT community service in this financial year.

The successful candidate will join our existing team of passionate permanent and associate clinicians and lead on the delivery of a range of psychotherapeutic interventions to private and healthcare funded clients.  The successful candidate will therefore join the team equipped with extensive experience in providing and supervising a range of NICE approved psychotherapy interventions such as DBT, CBT, Cognitive Analytical Therapy, EMDR and Schema Therapy along with assessment skills in psychometric tools.  Extensive experience in running and delivering DBT-based interventions is desirable but we are able to provide training and ongoing support through the existing expertise within the Charity.

The Role

This role will suit an experienced Qualified Psychologist or DBT Therapist who is looking for a role in an outpatient clinic or is qualified in DBT.

The post holder will report to the Principal Psychologist and receive clinical supervision and mentoring from the Associate Director of Psychology.  Our Private Therapy Service is one of several services within the Outpatients division and the post holder will therefore be part of a friendly and supportive wider clinical team. They will also be able to take advantage of the extensive CPD opportunities that St Andrew’s offers.

About You

St Andrew’s Outpatient Clinic was established in 2012 to provide assessment and treatment for people who are able to fund their own care, and have mild mental health conditions. You would be responsible for delivering outcome based psychological therapy working age adults, with the opportunity to also work with adolescents and older adults. We are looking for a clinician who is clearly able to demonstrate experience in delivering therapy according to evidenced based guidelines. Experience of using a range of therapeutic modalities such as DBT, CBT, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and EMDR would also be an advantage.  Equally important would be your ability to work both autonomously within community based settings, as well as collaboratively with other teams and professionals. 

In order to be eligible, you will need to be registered with the HCPC or BACP / BABCP.  You may be required to travel within the UK as part of your role and hence a full UK driver’s license is desirable. 

Your skills in managing risk concerns in a patient-centred and effective manner will be key in ensuring the service prioritises the safety of its service users.  You will be equally confident in your ability to gather, interpret and analyse data to ensure treatment is being delivered effectively to both on an individual and service development level.

We have ambitious plan for our therapy services including introducing a new DBT service in late 2024 and you will have the opportunity to be involved in this too.

Interview: TBC but early applications are encouraged as interviews will take place when suitable people have been identified.

The position is offered as a permanent contract.


We offer an excellent benefits package including pension, 35 - 38 days holiday, sickness policy on par with NHS, life cover, cycle to work scheme and opportunities for research, teaching and continuing professional development.
