We are looking for endorsed Clinical Psychologists/Clinical Psychologist Registrars to join our busy private practice in Midland. We have a very large referral base and are in need of clinician's looking for 1 to 3 days a week private practice work or after hours 5pm to 8pm Mondays.  Cygnet Clinic is a self-organised private practice with an emphasis on collegial support and empirically supported therapies.

Our head office is located in the central medical/health district of Midland on The Avenue. Our clinicians are experienced and dedicated to serving the community and we have expanded to include Psychiatrists in our practice.  We are a very busy practice with a substantially growning wait list.

Reception, booking, online & offsite access, database, business cards, stationary, computers, printers, bank/terminal transaction fees and other operational costs are covered by the clinic. Our subcontractor arrangement 65% of billings to clinician. Our support for clinicians takes away the time-consuming adminstrative tasks which is part of the reason for our expansion and retainment of our clinical team. We are always in need of Child Clinical Psychologists as the waitlist for under 12s continues to grow.


What you are provided with:

•  Full case load of clients on our waitlist

•  Promotion of your clinical skills to referring doctors

•  State of the art IT services including database with offsite access

•  Access to Psychological Assessments

•  Offsite calendar updates to phone/tablet/computer

•  Full reception support

•  Fully furnished room with business cards and door name plates.

•  Networked laser printers 

•  SMS and Calendar Reminders Service to reduce DNA

•  Accounts services for organising payments (DNA etc.)

•  Clinical Supervision/Peer Supervision every week

•  Use of our group room with screen & projector for running PD or Group therapy sessions.

•  Use of our growing library of psychotherapy texts for loan

•  Flexibility with work hours and freedom to create specific therapy programs and/or research projects

All billing, invoicing, client bookings, reminders, debt collection, computer supplies, stationary, business cards and IT support are provided for you.

Essentially you can just focus on being a Clinical Psychologist.  Our clinic is a vibrant work environment with supportive and experienced clinicians. We all have 1 hour lunch break between 12-1pm together every day to help will collegial support and peer supervision. We have organised quarterly social events to help cohesiveness of the team (and to have a little bit of fun too).

Cygnet is a clinician centric (not management driven) private practice, so you have control over fee increase, reduction (waivers) and case load management.  All of the clinicians including management work clinicially under the same % model.  

A summary of income FTE equivalents can be found here: Cygnet Income Equivalents.  Registrars $170/hour, Clinical Psychologists $195, Weekend/Afterhours $220.  All costs are covered by the percentage model so it is impossible to lose money from overheads and running costs.

Cygnet Clinic has an extensive range of referral sources and we are active in a number of different areas including assessment, workers' compensation, motor vehicle insurance based work, EAP, Medicare referrals, and medico-legal reports.  We also actively support supervision of postgraduate students and registrars and are activity involved with applied research with major universities. 

This job would suit a professional & motivated clinician who would like to contribute to our current clinical team. Must be eligible for endorsement as a Clinical Psychologist or as a Registrar preferrably in the second year of registrarship with AHPRA.

Previous experience in working in a private practice would also be beneficial (although not essential). We all take a proportion of bulk billed referrals (up to 3 per day) as there are significant psychosocial difficulties in the Midland area.
