We have recently been chosen to deliver a new Long Term Conditions (LTC) initiative within IAPT Services, giving our team the opportunity of enhanced training and skills in this area.

Richmond Borough Mind (RB Mind) runs the Step 2 element of the Richmond Wellbeing Service (RWS). We are an established Low Intensity IAPT service with an excellent reputation for delivering high quality patient care. Consistently within the top 3 London IAPT services for Recovery rates, we can offer you excellent experience. There is also opportunity to work with our Step 3 High Intensity colleagues.

Experienced in Low Intensity work, you will be enthusiastic, self-motivated and able to meet the demands of a challenging but rewarding role.

You will be working with a team of dynamic, dedicated and committed PWPs and trainees to deliver the best possible service in the Borough of Richmond. 

Reporting to the RB Mind Service Development Manager and supervised by the Step 2 clinical lead, you will receive regular clinical supervision, training and help deliver a variety of evidenced based methods for helping people towards their recovery.

You will be part of a successful team at both RB Mind and our partners in Richmond, East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT), and for your personal development have access to expertise from both the Trust and the local Mind network. 

Based near central Twickenham you will be able to travel throughout the Borough of Richmond to ensure that our service is responsive to the needs of all communities in Richmond throughout weekdays and one evening per week. 

You will be managing your own caseload through delivering workshops and individual guided self-help. Richmond Borough Mind is committed to clinical excellence and ensuring continuing professional development for our staff team by developing their skills and special interests.

Following RB Mind’s recent staff happiness survey, all PWPs said they were highly motivated, found their job worthwhile, had good relationships within the team and that RB Mind are a good organisation to work for.
