Ready for a new Psychologist Job in Melbourne?
Opportunities for Psychologists (with Endorsement in an Area of Practice or Registrar)
Melbourne Clinical & Child Psychology is a team focused private practice in Armadale and Beaumaris that provides assessment and treatment for a range of mental health and developmental concerns in adults, teenagers, children and parents.
We strive to be different in developing a collaborative model of practice for independent health professionals. You enjoy the benefits of working within a team and clients benefit from a shared care perspective. We all have different training backgrounds and have worked in other settings, including public mental health, private mental health and universities. Our fantastic receptionists provide administrative support and triaging of new clients. We value our cohesive team environment and have gained a reputation for providing excellent care.
We now have fantastic opportunities available for Psychologists with endorsement (Clinical, Neuropsychology, Counselling, Educational /Developmental, Health, including registrars) to join our team as an independent practitioner at our Armadale or Beaumaris Clinics.
Your new practice
Come join us by the beach in Beaumaris or in leafy green streets in Armadale. Both clinics are in village areas with shopping and cafes. All offices are naturally light filled, elegantly furnished and fully resourced so you can simply step in and begin. Espresso coffee machines, fruit baskets and regular social opportunities contribute to a relaxed and inspiring workplace. Enjoy individual and group supervision as well as ad hoc support. Our team prioritises social connection and we are building opportunities for groups, student learning and research.
Work schedule that suits you
The advantage of working in our private practice is being able to choose your own days and working hours to fit into your lifestyle. You can also choose the number of clients to see each day and when you might like to take holidays or block off time for appointments.
Your schedule is your own and we support you to manage your own self-care, family and lifestyle commitments.
There are no expectations placed upon you in terms of client numbers or sessions. You are supported in independent clinical decision making and your clients are your own. You practice as an independent practitioner.
We provide regular professional development and can link you in with our community of referrals including dietitians, Psychiatrists, Paediatricians and GPs.
Supporting new registrars
When you have completed your Doctoral or Master’s program in Psychology it can feel daunting to know where to start working. Traditionally private practice was an independent workplace, however with the introduction of Medicare rebates private practice has grown to now support teams of Psychologists.
Many workplaces still provide a model of practice where Psychologists work alone. This is where Melbourne Clinical & Child Psychology strives to be different. We value each other’s expertise and appreciate the support and social benefits from a close team.
We provide clinical support whenever you need so that you feel connected. We also share resources, referral options and therapeutic ideas so that you can grow and thrive in your professional career.
You may currently work in public mental health and are thinking about transitioning to private practice. This is a great opportunity to experience how private practice can be fulfilling and supportive within a team environment. For more senior Psychologists there is opportunity to provide in-house or external supervision alongside your client work to support your teaching and supervisory practice.
We also welcome recent graduates of Master’s or Doctoral Programs. Our team is a mix of established and early career Psychologists and we love the opportunity to learn from each other and create a collegial environment. Regular formal supervision and every day clinical support is provided to support your career development.
“We want you to love the space you work in and enjoy the benefits of our many resources so that you can provide exemplary care to your clients.”
