    We are recruiting an additional practitioner in West Kent to our Mind and Body team. This is an exciting initiative that supports young people involved in (or at risk of) self-harming behaviours but who are not accessing support from specialist mental health services.

    We are looking for someone to join our team of proactive and enthusiastic practitioners. Applicants should possess excellent communication and casework skills. They must also have proven experience of working with young people presenting with complex needs and should relish the opportunity to help participants more positively manage their thoughts and actions.

    You will be required to deliver a combination of individual and therapeutic group interventions with young people, most commonly within school environments. You will employ a motivational interviewing approach in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques to elicit attitudinal and behavioural changes in participants.
