North Tyneside Talking Therapies Service is a long established Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Service, providing psychological input to the North Tyneside population since 2008. We are a patient focused and pro-active community based primary care service with strong working relationships with GPs and our colleagues in secondary care and specialist services. We are committed to delivering high quality community oriented services, and to working in partnership with service users, carers, health and social care agencies and the voluntary sector. The team is an integrated mental health service made up of IAPT, Counselling, Psychology and Employment Support working within steps 2-4 of the stepped care model. We work in a blended approach. Mix of working from home completing therapy virtually and working from Northumbria bases.
The service will accept any applications for part time hours/job share arrangements that fit with service need.
