Join our team

We take the time to work with and offer tailored support to each of our psychologists to ensure they continue to enjoy their practice, and take it in the direction they desire.

We know that, with the huge demand for mental health services, many private practices are seeking to expand. We offer a point of difference.

We have created a great fit between all members of the team, including our administrative staff, so we hope that you, too, will love the dynamic group of people we work with.

Working with us

We offer generous remuneration.  Because we want you to stay a while.

We have contractor positions available at both our Alphington and Fitzroy North clinics, with flexibility in the days we can offer, including evening and weekend sessions.

We are a fun-loving, hard-working, committed bunch of practitioners who care about the people we work with as much as the clients we support. Our psychologists’ interest areas are many and varied, and we share our experience in oncology, perinatal, trauma, adolescent mental health, and trans and gender diversity, to name a few.

We would love to add to these skill sets, as well as welcome other areas of interest to our team.
