The Retreat Clinics Manchester Psychological Therapies Service: Children’s & Young People Sessional Therapist


NHS Jobs

The Retreat Clinics Manchester is looking to recruit a talented, clinically strong sessional integrative or CBT therapist able to offer in-person sessions in our Manchester service, in order to meet the needs of our growing client base.  In particular, we are looking for an accredited CBT therapist trained in working with children and young people and/or adults or an integrative psychotherapist with experience with CBT.

Please note, this role is for face to face appointments from our service based in Withington.


  • Clients are triaged by a senior clinician before being matched to a clinician. You are able to accept or refuse cases without prejudice.
  • Unlimited access to clinic space in our beautifully appointed clinic. Clients are greeted by our administration team and able to wait in our comfortable waiting area.
  • Responsive support from our clinical leads, as required.
  • Access to quality clinical record management systems to support safe practice, and access to IT support for any queries you may have.
  • Administration support to allow you to focus purely on your clients and therapy.
  • Free mandatory training if you have not completed this elsewhere.
  • The option to join one of our clinical network forums where you can meet with other clinicians working in the organisation.
  • Access to amenities onsite, including free parking, a library and kitchen, with free tea and coffee available.
  • Access to our clinician office and desktop PCs, to complete your notes, do additional reading, or connect with other clinicians.
  • Support from our talented administrators, enabling you to concentrate on your clinical work.

If you’re driven by clinical excellence and outstanding results, if you measure your own achievement by that of your clients, and if you would like to work with an organisation that truly values the process, we would like to hear from you. You will be supported as a professional and as an individual, with consideration of your current capacity, preferences, and expertise when you are offered cases.
