 About You

You are a kind, caring, supportive, compassionate, honest, open, grounded, calm, connected team player who is passionate about “Helping People (your clients, team and others around you) …Well.”. You are also a hardworking, dedicated Professional, who reflects on your work and yourself as a human and genuinely wants to improve and grow both as a human and in your work helping others as a psychologist. You understand what reflective practice is about and value supervision and professional development highly. You often go the extra mile to provide value for your clients every session, you care about your relationships within team, the quality of service you provide, and the outcomes your clients achieve. This is what motivates you.

You feel uncomfortable when your clients attend inconsistently, are not engaging in doing the work, or discontinue from therapy prematurely, before they have fully benefitted from what therapy can offer and before they achieve their goals of therapy. You want to ensure your clients commit to therapy for the required duration and consistency of sessions and do the work necessary to get well, stay well and make and maintain the changes necessary for excellent mental health and satisfaction with life.

You are highly organised, but embrace flexibility and openness to working collaboratively with clients in a flexible way to be fully client centred in your work. Although you are motivated by excellent treatment outcomes and client satisfaction, you understand the value of having fun, laughing, a good sense of humour and enjoying your work with clients and team and finding enjoyment in your work with client and team interactions. You embrace self care and self compassion, you value your health, wellbeing, life outside of work and keep a good work/life balance.

You understand the importance of maintaining a cohesive and supportive team and you enjoy and feel inspired by the team you choose to be a part of. Approachable, you use psychological skills to cope when things get stressful to stay calm & grounded. You are clear and consistent in your communications with compassion for others.

You appreciate full admin support, and established systems, policies and procedures to free up your time, so that you can do your best clinical work. 

You see a genuine fit between our Values and culture statement on our website and how you live your life.

You may want to become more competent and confident in preventing your clients from premature termination in therapy, or in ACT, CFT, DBT, MI, Schema Therapy, CBT, Psychodynamic Therapy with ongoing Professional Development, training, Individual & Group Supervision.

You develop excellent relationships with your clients, fellow team members and referring GP's. You want to work in a practice with an established reputation for providing excellent treatment outcomes, client satisfaction and customer service.

About our Rooms

Our Practice is located in Manly Vale, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, just 5 minutes’ drive from Mosman, and 10 minutes drive from Manly. We are 100 metres walk from the main road, the B1 bus stop, café’s, gyms, yoga studios, woollies and shops so you can easily access the practice via public transport, grab a coffee, lunch, do your weekly food shop or go to the gym/do yoga. We also have ample all-day parking available on street nearby. North facing, the 4 therapy rooms are purpose built, have wall to ceiling windows with an abundance of natural light, looking over large gum trees. The Therapy rooms have been custom built for therapy, are large, spacious, fully sound proofed with individually controlled air conditioning. There is a kitchenette and spare area to work from or chat away from the waiting room.

About The Role, Practice and Us

The role would suit a Registered Psychologist with or without an endorsement in Clinical or Counselling Psychology. Suitably qualified and experienced overseas applicants who have completed their overseas skills assessment, and are registered with AHPRA, are invited to apply.

We have the capacity to nurture, grow and develop team members with all levels of experience. Early career Psychologists are invited to apply.  

Unlike some private practices, we offer a career progression pathway to ensure your continued growth as a practitioner. To progress your career, you may be able to diversify your role, or if desired, you could step into a leadership and management role. We want to work with you to help you achieve your highest potential at work. 

We have flexible arrangements for an Independent Contractor or Employee Position (minimum 3 days per week). 

ST & A Psychology is a well-established Group Private Psychology Practice based in Manly Vale, with 4 individual therapy rooms, reception, waiting room, Kitchen and toilet facilities. Established in 2005, the practice brings quality individual, relationship and family therapy to adults, children, and adolescents with a broad range of issues including disorders of behaviour (odd, adhd), adjustment, mood, anxiety, psychosis, personality, addiction, as well as problems with parenting, grief, self esteem, relating, body image/eating disorders, stress, pain, identity, and satisfaction with life.

Our Practice prides itself on building strong therapeutic relationships with our clients, having excellent client retention rates (so your clients do not prematurely terminate therapy before fully benefitting) and strong working relationships with our referrers along with excellent treatment outcomes, fantastic client satisfaction feedback, and customer service excellence. Most clients of the service are referred under Medicare's Better Access Scheme, whilst some claim through private health or pay out of their pocket.   

Due to excellent treatment outcomes and client satisfaction, and 4 of our long serving team leaving our practice after years of service, the 5 Psychologists working in the practice can no longer service the growing number of new referrals. We are seeking a Psychologist to join us to become a valued and respected, integral, member of this growing team. The successful applicant will enjoy flexible hours, excellent remuneration, fortnightly individual supervision/case consultation in ACT, CFT, CBT Schema, Psychodynamic and MI Models, excellent administrative and collegial support so you can focus on excellent assessment, therapy, reports and liaising with GP's and referrers as necessary/helpful, in a truly supportive, warm, fun, caring, experienced clinical team.

Our mission is to “Help people…Well.”TM We strive to be the leading private psychology practice on the northern beaches and the Employer of Choice. We pride ourselves on having a family friendly, highly professional and supportive environment.

We value our team members and invest in them heavily. Knowing that investing in you as a team member will pay back in terms of your hard work, passion, commitment and dedication to delivering the best service to our clients and referrers and supporting our team. We reward our team with competitive packages and a wide range of benefits in recognition of this. We celebrate birthdays, do bi monthly social evets like rock climbing, sailing on a yacht and coffees and beach walks. We also have an annual Xmas party.  

Job Description:

Commencing either part time or full time with 3, 4 or 5 days per week at Manly Vale, as a contract or employee psychologist, with a view, if desired, to stick with 3, or build to 4-5 days/week (3 minimum), the suitable candidate will conduct assessments and implement psychological therapy, as well as liaise with other treating health professionals in person, by phone, email and reports. Although evidence-based approaches (particularly ACT, CFT, DBT, Narrative, CBT, Schema and MI) within an integrative model is valued, and at times required, freedom to choose the modalities you wish to work with is encouraged.

Referrals are provided, however an active approach to meeting with, calling and liaising with referrers to market yourself and the practice with the clinical director and other team members will be necessary. There is an opportunity also, over time, to become a Clinical Team leader, or principle psychologist for the suitable contractor with the right personality, professionalism, drive and commitment.
