The Psychological Therapies Services (within the mental health departments) at HMP YOI
Holloway and HMP YOI Bronzefield have a number of voluntary placements available for final year trainees and qualified psychotherapists interested in forensic psychotherapy.
The services offer female prisoners ongoing, once-a-week, individual psychotherapy.
Mandatory weekly group supervision is provided and placements will last 1-2 years,
depending on performance review.
