Dear Sir / Madam

Re: Application for Instructor Therapist

I am hereby applying for an instructor therapist opportunity in your organisation following an advertisement on your website.

I am a graduate with a degree in clinical psychology from the University of Florida where I specialize in the mental and emotional health of the human population.

My professional experience includes helping patients increase their quality of life and work through burdensome mental health issues.

I have a strong work ethic and capable of showing empathy while also being very oriented to solving problems.

As an instructor therapist, I will seek to have a strong grasp of current information on mental health techniques and strategies and be able to lead an integrated mental health campaign from concept to execution using trending information and skills.


Yours faithfully,
