Child and Family Psychologist

Would you like to maximise your impact on the wellbeing of children and families without giving up your own life?

Would you like flexibility in your working hours so that you can do the important things that really matter?

Want to work with a team of like-minded professionals who value ethics and quality over quantity and short cuts?

Then come and work the Jacaranda way.

At The Jacaranda Centre we prioritise client care through ensuring our psychologists have a healthy work life balance. After all, the healthier you are, the better you perform, and the more your clients benefit. And the better The Jacaranda Centre supports our local community, the better our reputation and the more people trust us to provide quality care. It’s a no brainer.

With supervision provided by a Senior Clinical Psychologist up to weekly at no expense to you, as well as unlimited access to the Principal Clinical Psychologist for report review and client consultation between supervision, peer supervision 6 weekly and professional development days quarterly, we have your support needs covered. 

Any Psychologist knows the hard work invested into the journey of becoming a fully-fledged practitioner. We all start with dreams of how we want to assist our clients and the community. We all have aspirations of where we want to go and what we want to focus more on.

Here at The Jacaranda Centre we foster your skills and interest areas by encouraging your involvement from the point of triage to ensure your client focus is on par with your skills and interests. And we cut through the red tape to ensure as much of your time as possible is dedicated to providing client care, which also maximizes your income. Even with a cap on client sessions at 6 per day, so that you can adequately prepare, debrief as needed and complete client letters or emails between sessions, you can earn more than in a regular full time salaried position elsewhere.

Typically we work with children from 3-16 years, providing therapeutic interventions and clinical assessments.  Some psychologists opt to do therapy only, others assessment only, although the majority provide both.  We work with a vast range of presenting concerns from challenging behaviour, anxiety and adjustment difficulties, social skills problems, grief and loss, as well as due to separation and family based trauma (children in OOHC). Concerns relating to childhood problems such as AD/HD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and learning difficulties are often referred for assessment. We have a strengths focused approach and believe in all children having the right to thrive.    

Application Criteria:

1.    Full registration with the Psychology Board / AHPRA.

2.    Current Working With Children (WWC) Check.

3.    Current Australian driver's license.

4.    Current Police Check (National Police Certificate).

5.    Eligibility for a Medicare Provider Number.

6.    Postgraduate qualifications or continued professional development beyond Honours/ Fourth year equivalent.   

7.    Must have access to a vehicle and be able to drive (for attending school visits and meetings etc).
