Senior Academic Lecturer

The Metanoia Institute offers a range of taught psychotherapy and counselling programmes. The Institute wishes to appoint a number of Senior Academic Lectures who can contribute to teaching on their undergraduate and post-graduate programmes.  Ideally qualified in either Humanistic or Person Centred counselling/psychotherapy, with a strong background in teaching and a passion for the development of students, you will join a well-established organisation in a senior academic position.

In particular, we are looking for tutors who are able to take on the role of primary tutor to a year group. You will make a substantial contribution to teaching, administrative and training activities on this Programme and take an active part in providing high quality training in counselling and psychotherapy.

The people appointed must be professionally accredited psychotherapists and/or counsellors and be experienced tutors within their field. They will be expected to contribute to the delivery of high- quality educational experiences for all students and to have a thorough knowledge of theory, curriculum development, and quality assurance procedures. A record of conference presentations and publication or evidence of the potential to develop in this area is essential. You will have a Post-graduate qualification in Counselling/Psychotherapy or Counselling Psychology and be registered with the relevant professional body (BACP, UKCP or BPS and HCPC). Candidates should have experience in providing counselling and psychotherapy services and in supervising practice. Ideally applicants will have Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) or relevant teaching experience.

Vacancies exist for the following programmes:

MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy and a BSc in Humanistic Counselling – An integration and thorough grounding in the theory and practice of the humanistic and integrative approaches of Person Centred, Gestalt, and Transactional Analysis theory. Both of these courses run one day a week (Monday for Psychotherapy and Tuesday for Counselling) for up to 25 weeks a year (although the teaching commitment is likely to be up to 20 days a year).

BSc and MSc in Contemporary Person Centred Psychotherapy - This course aims to support students to develop as sophisticated Person Centred therapists familiar with issues and approaches used in a variety of settings where contemporary therapeutic work is evolving and able to relate these to the Person Centred approach.
