Who we are

WPF Therapy provides Psychodynamic Psychotherapy to more than 400 clients every week and we provide training and professional courses in counselling and psychotherapy for over 1,000 people every year. Our services are delivered face to face both in our London Bridge building and online.
We employ about 80 staff, most of who work part time in our clinics and delivering our training courses.
Our services are open and accessible, founded over 50 years ago, we are as committed as ever to making sure that good therapy is affordable for those that need our help.

WPF Therapy’s work is done in the service of others and we engage in that work alongside the wider profession to support the development, utilisation and application of the psychodynamic model. Running as a Social Enterprise, the Board is responsible for ensuring that our charitable work is underpinned by sound financial management. Our services are based on the principle of being open and accessible to all so we want to ensure we use the Board’s collective expertise in developing and delivering services. We are looking for three trustees, no prior trustee experience is required as support and training will be provided. 

We are looking for people who can bring skills and experience in one of the following areas:

Applied Research: you will have professional skills in applied research and effective dissemination of findings 

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion:  you will have management experience in embedding equalities, diversity and inclusion into all aspects of an organisation and implementing organisational and cultural change  

Clinical Governance: you will be a qualified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist (UKCP or BPC) with a mixture of experience working within organisations and in private practice  and; a commitment to understanding the need to demonstrate impact would be desirable, for example using clinical outcome measures.

We know that more diverse Boards benefit from greater breadth of experience and the possibility of finding different solutions form those tried before and we are particularly keen to encourage applications from those that are from groups under represented within the psychotherapy sector. 

 We are able to support attendance both online and in building.  As a minimum we ask Trustees to attend in person for at least one Board meeting per year plus the off-site Board away days, currently held in Spring and Autumn.

For an informal discussion on any of the roles please contact WPF Therapy’s Chair, via [email protected]
