Wimbledon Guild is a community charity in Merton offering practical help and support so that people never have to face life’s challenges alone. 

Our BACP accredited Talking Therapies department has been running for over 40 years and we are known for providing long-term psychodynamic therapy. To meet the emerging needs of the local community, we have developed new and more accessible services which now include emotional support groups, psycho-education workshops and short-term counselling. Due to the success of the department we have recently secured long-term funding to provide counselling and groups for targeted communities including LGBTQ+, Black and Asian communities, Refugee communities and online therapy for people who are housebound.   

Due to our expanding provision, we are recruiting for a new Assessor. You will have responsibility for triaging and assessing potential talking therapies clients and for managing a small team of student volunteer assessors.

We’re looking for someone who is highly professional and conscientious in their work and will bring a high level of experience as a therapist, assessing a wide range of individuals for different services.
