Senior Dual Qualified Therapist - Mynurva

Senior Dual Qualified Therapist

About Mynurva

We are an online therapy service providing live video consultations to both private clients and those accessing our service through partners. The majority of our work is CBT and counselling, although we are a growing service and are continually looking to add other types of therapy to our provision.

At Mynurva, we strive to ensure that everyone who needs support with their mental health has the opportunity to access it, without long waiting lists or rigid discharge targets. Our focus is providing client-led care; we trust our clinicians to create and deliver treatment plans drawing in multiple modalities and skillsets. We work flexibly and avoid ‘tick box’ exercises – we’re here to help people and try to remove the barriers to doing so effectively.

We work with partners across the private sector, charities, universities, EAPs, and the NHS who refer clients to us either through a triaged pathway or via a self-referral link.  We work solely with adults.

The role

This role offers a great opportunity to join a quickly growing company in a permanent role, with the potential to increase hours to a full time role in the future. The role would primarily be split between supervision and duty support, and clinical hours.

This role would suit a self-starter: we are constantly growing and improving. We encourage our team to get involved in the development of new ideas and ways of working and to take the initiative on new projects. As we are a small team, we also ask that everyone pitches in with the tasks that need doing – this will range from day to day, and may include working with the tech team to provide clinical input on our product, creating and reviewing self-help resources, providing admin and customer service report.

You would work closely with the Operations Manager and the Clinical Lead Team.
