Our Art Therapists deliver a range of art therapy interventions to individuals, groups and families. They also advise carers and other professionals as part of our Creative Therapies team within the Community Learning Disabilities team.
Using art, drama and music to help both children and adults with learning difficulties and complex emotional needs to express feelings and experiences which are difficult to put into words, our Art Therapists work in a variety of settings. They also manage, prioritise and review clinical caseloads. This requires highly specialised clinical skills and expertise in art therapy, carrying out assessments and referring patients to other disciplines where appropriate.
Here, every day is different but also rewarding, and you’ll get to work with and learn from colleagues. The diversity of our patients means you’ll also get to use and build on all your skills, supported by regular one-to-ones and help to grow as a clinician. As we offer a diverse range of services, you can also look forward to opportunities to diversify your career or specialise – there are many career pathways to choose from.
We look for Art Therapists who are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and have an approved master’s degree in art therapy or art psychotherapy.
