Providing support to those affected by eating disorders.

Tackling eating disorders as early as possible is critical to stop them becoming entrenched. The longer they go on, the more serious the impact on health, wellbeing, and recovery.

We are expanding our services across the Oxfordshire area and are looking for experienced Therapeutic Support Workers, who will be based within several Primary Care Team hubs in Oxfordshire. You will be working alongside the NHS Adult Eating Disorder team and other local agencies, including mental health charities, colleges, and GPs, to engage with and to support people affected by an eating disorder in your area. This will include both direct work (counselling) and the delivery of training to young people and professionals on issues relating to eating disorders.

We are looking for a candidate who has the necessary skills and experience to fulfil the following role:

MAIN DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Provide one-to-one therapeutic interventions including counselling for people affected by eating disorders
