Experienced general/clinical/counselling psychologists -private practice associates

Are you an experienced psychologist looking to develop your private practice in a supportive environment?

Due to an increasing number of referrals we are looking for motivated and experienced psychologists to join our well established private practice located in Richmond. We are looking for experienced general, clinical, and/or counselling psychologists. Becoming an associate of YCP offers the opportunity to work in the private sector, whilst still having access to a supportive team and allowing you to avoid much of the hassle of setting up and running a private practice.


About YCP

YCP is a small private practice that has built a reputation for the provision of compassionate, non-judgmental, and effective psychological services. Our office is conveniently located close to public transport on the east end of Swan St, Richmond, and provides comfortable and private consulting rooms. We primarily work with young adults, adults, and older adults. 


Why you might want to work with YCP:

·         We strive to create a supportive environment for our psychologists

·         We offer a true associate model rather than a sub-contracting or mixed model as we believe this is most consistent with the recommendations of the APS and ATO.

·         Room fees are set to offer discounts to those who book permanent sessions, book full-day sessions, and become senior associates

·         Room fees include access to:

o   Comfortable and private consulting or assessment room

o   Administration area with computing equipment, printer, HICAPS/eftpos, phones, secure e-fax service, and practice management software.

o   IT support provided by an external medical IT provider

o   Administration support - we currently have part-time administration support but will increase this as needed in the future.

o   Psychological and neuropsychological tests (forms at your expense)

o   Professional library, client workbooks, and resources on CD and DVD.

o   YCP branding and marketing

o  Use of our forms and procedures

·         A 50% discount on room fees for the first three months if you book permanent sessions

·         A reliable, and expanding, referral network

·         Monthly individual peer consultation (if committing to a permanent full-day booking per week, otherwise prorated) and monthly group supervision

·         Two on-site parking spaces for staff
