Work for us

Community Housing and Therapy (CHT) is a leading provider of Psychologically Informed Recovery Communities – ‘where relationships are the treatment’. CHT works with adults and young people who have challenging and complex presentations, many of whom have diagnoses of personality disorders or psychoses, and who have experienced negative childhood experiences or trauma, within a psycho-developmental framework in order to create an environment where the individual needs are met to enhance development, health and wellbeing, with the aim of enabling them to lead successful and productive lives.

We offer a good working environment as part of a small organisation that is passionate about providing high quality developmental support to young persons and adults experiencing mental distress and complex psychosocial disorders. We have a strong sense of values, a clear treatment and support model based on relational psychology, client participation and recovery, a strong training programme and ethos, and a highly supportive clinical and management framework.

 

What our staff say

“I appreciate CHT’s dedication to regularly training staff and giving them space to openly reflect on their roles in a way that is realistic about the challenges of working in mental health. It is generally a welcoming environment that encourages staff’s personal and professional development.”

“I like the focus on formulation regarding our clients and staff reflecting on their practice weekly”

“We are making a real difference to people’s lives.”
