The DHC Talking Therapies team are delighted to welcome this year’s cohort of trainee therapists.
A total of 21 trainee CBT Therapists and Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners have now started their programmes with us.
We believe that it’s vital to invest in the development of our trainees to help them support us in delivering a great service and also for the future of a high quality workforce in NHS Talking Therapies more widely.

Our trainees are valued and supported from the very beginning. They are assigned a ‘Buddy’ before they even start work and they are able to ask questions and talk about concerns in a safe and informal way.
During an average day for a Trainee PWP there may be client assessments and treatments as well as meetings, training or supervision sessions. Trainees can also assist with client referrals and waitlist management. This means our trainees develop confidence within all aspects of client care and have a great working knowledge of systems and procedures.
Our trainees bring fresh perspectives and also help our teams remain grounded in the theory and evidence base of our work.
An additional benefit of our trainee programme is that it provides the local community with great career opportunities.
We very much look forward to seeing our trainees develop and progress in their roles.
