    The Tuke Centre is part of The Retreat, a charity providing mental health services in York.  As a charity, our work is underpinned by clear principles of compassion, hope and courage.  Demand for our psychological assessment and therapy services is increasing and we want to ensure we have the highest quality staff to provide these services to the community of York and beyond.

    Who we are

    The Tuke Centre opened nearly 30 years ago.  We are a counselling, therapy and psychological assessment service, offering confidential therapy and assessment for adults only at present, though we plan to extend our services to children and young people in the near future.

    Appointments take place in a welcoming detached building which provides an informal, relaxed environment.

    We have great outcomes

    We pride ourselves on delivering high quality tailored individual and group therapy to our clients.  In the first half of 2018, 94% of our clients who completed therapy and gave us feedback showed a significant or reliable change in their scores on the CORE-34. 

    What we are looking for

    The post holder will be expected to provide psychological therapy and assessment, as well as training, consultancy and supervision.  They will be expected to carry a caseload which may include individuals and groups.  We are particularly looking for individuals who have training in therapies such as EMDR, Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy, though if you have training in other therapeutic modalities we would still like to talk to you.  There are also opportunities to be involved in service development and a range of research activities.  We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are excellent team players to join us in our services.

    In return we can provide exciting opportunities, a competitive pay structure and a wide range of benefits including an attractive pension scheme and free parking.
