Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Buckinghamshire’s Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). We are looking for an enthusiastic Band 7 systemic family psychotherapist with relevant experience to join our Getting More Help pathway in South Bucks.

The service is designed to provide young people with expert help at the time they need it. The service is based on the ‘Thrive model’, and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has partnered with the charity Barnardo’s to ensure a value based collaborative approach to service delivery.

You will be working in a community based team delivering a service to children, young people and their families in a supportive and lively multidisciplinary team, where differences in training are respected and valued. You will have the opportunity to play a significant role in the delivery of a modernised and comprehensive service.  The post holder will be based in High Wycombe.

In addition to direct clinical work (assessment and intervention), there will be the opportunity to use a range of core systemic family therapy skills such as teaching, training, consultation, supervision, and audit /service evaluation.  The post holder will play a key role in supporting the systemic thinking around the provision and evaluation of care provided within the service.  

There are professional links across Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, with structures in place for supervision and governance arrangements.  The post holders will be working within a multidisciplinary team and alongside systemic family therapy colleagues.
