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.
