You will see clients at our offices in Glasgow city centre

CLOSING DATE: THURSDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 2021, 5PM

Talking EDs: Eating Disorders Support Service Scotland seek to recruit a suitable Counselling or Clinical Psychologist to join our friendly, supportive team of psychotherapists, counsellors, mental health practitioners and dieticians. We are currently a team of 12. We are looking for an Affiliate Psychologist: Eating Disorders to provide in-person therapy and counselling appointments at our offices in Glasgow city centre.

This role is not suitable for newly qualified therapists (0-3 years) or those with little or no experience of eating disorders.

We are looking for someone to see our clients for one of the available clinic times below. We request that Affiliates commit to seeing at least 5 clients per week during one of the clinics below. Other work will be available here and at our other non-eating disorder practices, should you want extra clients. We need a practitioner who can see clients during one of a blocks of time/clinics below (although you can spread clients across the days/times below, if you prefer):

  • Monday mornings, 8am-2pm
  • Monday afternoons/evenings: 4pm-6pm
  • Tuesday morning, 8am-11am
  • Thursdays, 11am-9pm (various slots available during this time)
  • Fridays, 2pm-9pm (various slots available during this time)
  • Saturdays, 4pm-6pm
  • Sundays, various slots available all day

You can choose which of these appointment slots suits you and we will set up a clinic for you during those times to see clients.

We do all the admin, advertising/marketing, getting the clients, arranging appointments, answering enquiries etc. - your role is to provide therapy sessions with the clients we refer to you.

This is a sessional self-employed role, however, you are very much part of a team and you will receive various benefits and discounts as part of your role.
