This is an opportunity for a lecturer (teaching and research focused) with a specialism in counselling psychology to join a team with an established reputation in applied social, cultural and critical psychology. 

A PhD or Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (or near completion) is essential, as well as up-to-date, sound knowledge of counselling and psychotherapy theory and practice.
