Locum Counsellors (Part time) - Expressions of Interest

Counselling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at The University of Melbourne invites expressions of interest from suitably qualified clinical and counselling psychologists or mental health social workers to be on our register for locum counselling employment.

CAPS provides a range of free psychological services to students and staff of the University in a collegial and supportive team of around 30 counsellors.  Locum counsellors provide psychological counselling focussed on triage, initial assessment and treatment, with specific emphasis on the identification and management of clients in high-risk situations, and appropriate referral or in-house shorter-term treatment intervention (up to six sessions).

Locum counsellors are generally engaged for two or three days per week for the duration of one or two academic semesters to help cover periods of peak appointment demand (e.g. February to June, and/or July to November). In house supervision, attendance to counselling case discussion meetings and regular professional development opportunities are included in the role. 

We are currently in the process of updating our register of interested and available counsellors to whom work may be offered from March to November 2021. Familiarity with Asian languages is desirable.   Due to COVID-19, appointments are currently offered via telecounselling (video conferencing or phone) but we are anticipating starting some in person appointments progressively over the next few months. 

For further information, position description, or to express interest via the submission of a curriculum vitae, please contact Karolina Crvenkovic by 24 March.
