Clinical Psychologist / Registrar - Private Practice

To meet the growing demands for our service, we are in need of x2 clinical psychologists or registrars to join, initially for 2-3 days per week (potential for full-time), starting either as soon as possible or early next year.

 

We are a relatively new private practice that has quickly built a strong reputation, with regular word of mouth referrals and glowing feedback from many GPs. We also get occasional referrals from other psychologists and hospitals servicing nearby communities.

 

Our client base is mostly made up of high-functioning adults (whose problems can nonetheless be extremely severe and/or peculiar). However, we also have a portion of clients who are ill equipped to thrive or even minimally function in this society (concession rates may be offered at the contractor’s discretion).

 

The kind of practice we hope to build is one where our psychologists are usually excited about (rather than exhausted from) seeing perplexing and otherwise challenging presentations, actively participate in peer supervision for mutual support and intellectually stimulating discussions, and genuinely enjoy getting to know and connect with each client at a deeper level (of course, to the extent that it is therapeutically relevant). For more information on our perspectives and approach please see: psycspot.org.au

  

We are currently operating out of a boutique clinic at The Cannery Rosebery, which is a heritage-listed and refurbished site that houses many famed eateries, and a place that you will love visiting frequently. Next year (hopefully in the first quarter), we will have another larger and purpose-built premise close to Mascot Train Station and Merriton Retail Precinct.

  • ABN for contractor / sole-trader work
  • Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance
