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 boutique private practice in Armadale and Beaumaris that provides treatment for a range of concerns in children, teenagers, adults and couples.
Our wonderful team of Clinical Psychologists and Clinical Neuropsychologists take a caring and collaborative approach to therapy. We all have different training backgrounds and have worked in other settings, including public mental health, private mental health and universities. We value our cohesive team environment and have gained a reputation for providing excellent care.
We now have fantastic job opportunities available for Psychologists with endorsement (Clinical, Neuropsychology, Counselling, Educational /Developmental, Health, including registrars) to join our team at our Armadale or Beaumaris Clinics.
Our clinics in Armadale and Beaumaris are in village settings surrounded by shops and cafes. Our practices are beautifully designed with high end furniture and decoration so that you love the space you are working in. Our Armadale Clinic is a traditional terrace with large rooms, fireplaces and an elegant warm atmosphere. Our Beaumaris Clinic takes its inspiration from the bayside and is warm, light and inviting. Onsite car parking is available at both clinics.
We support our Psychologists with seamless technology including computers, secure messaging, practice management software, eFax etc. Telehealth is conducted via Zoom Health and secure communications. We value a team atmosphere and arrange regular catch-ups, professional development, sharing of therapeutic ideas and clinical support. We encourage discussion of therapeutic process, formulations and treatment ideas, and have created a communication and resources hub.
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.
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 an independent model of practice. 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 do not feel like you are working alone. 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.”
