About the Company

At Atrium we provide mental health services in prisons, the workplace and to private clients. We are looking for a Clinical Director, and a Prison Services Manager to join as at an exciting turning point in our journey.

Atrium are a small, friendly company established over 20 years ago. Historically we have soley provided 1-1 therapy for private clients and counselling services for offenders in several large London prisons. 

. Atrium has been providing therapy services for over 20 years, and in 2010 we won a contract to deliver services to a local prison. We currently work with several London prisons.  Courses of targeted 1:1 therapy sessions are delivered under an outcomes based contract, for those prisoners who are assessed by the main healthcare provider as requiring treatment. This work provides short-term, targeted, evidence-based interventions for prisoners experiencing psychological distress.

We have had considerable success in this setting, based on our unique model of identifying the underlying causes of a prisoner’s issues, and being able to provide the right therapist and interventions to help them create genuine improvement.

In 2019 we launched our Workplace division which aims to prevent, manage and mitigate poor mental health in the workplace. We are designing and delivering innovative, digital products including assessments, training and development, education, HR guidance, strategy consulting and direct therapy at management level in companies.
