Website Insight IAPT

Not-for-profit organisation providing free NHS talking therapies

The PWP role within Insight IAPT is highly valued and seen as an integral part of what we do. Our PWPs provide disorder specific assessments and evidence-based low intensity CBT interventions for people with anxiety disorders and/or depression. We work to the stepped care model to provide the least intrusive and most appropriate level of care to meet the needs of the person. Therefore, our PWPs will offer a wide range of treatments, including telephone and online treatment, cCBT programmes, psycho-educational groups, courses, workshops, webinars and one-to-one work. Adapting what we offer to make our treatments more accessible is a critical characteristic of what we do.

Being a PWP within Insight IAPT means joining a provider who really values the PWP role, at every level of the organisation. We have new PWP preceptorship and career development opportunities through to senior management and clinical roles. As you will already know, the PWP role is fast-paced and carries a high-volume caseload. We listen to our PWPs wellbeing needs and provide clinical CPD, self-care sessions and high-quality resources to enable you to support people effectively. The role is varied and constantly evolving with the evidence base and guidance and you can be a part of our evolution if you join us.

We would love to hear from you if you are a qualified PWP who has successfully completed a BPS accredited PWP course certificate at UG or PG level. This could also be as part of the MSci in Applied Psychology with integrated BPS accredited PWP training, or as part of the BPS accredited PWP apprenticeship training route. You must also have a proven track record of delivering high quality disorder specific assessments and Low Intensity CBT interventions that reflect local and national priorities and targets. You will be remote working, with the ability to travel to our Wirral service to complete face to face therapy as required.

You will be joining Insight IAPT, which is a highly regarded, national organisation and an experienced provider of IAPT services on behalf of the NHS. The Talking Together Wirral service has been delivering high and low intensity interventions in the local area since April 2019 and continues to build our reputation with key local partners. The service has formal partnerships with Cruse, Open Door, Age UK, Clear Minds, and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, working to bridge the gap between Primary and Secondary Care Mental Health services as well as provide access to support for practical issues impacting on well-being.

It is our mission to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the people we serve. You will play a key role in delivering this mission and be committed to our core values, which are at the heart of everything we do. This is an excellent opportunity to join an organisation that has experienced recent growth and continues to seek new opportunities to further strengthen and build upon our excellent reputation.
