The Position:

We’re looking for Clinical Psychologists, Registered Psychologists or accredited Mental Health Social Workers to deliver face to face psychological support at one of our Gidget House sites in NSW or QLD. Our perinatal (conception to one year postpartum) clinicians provide a wide range of individual, couple and parent-infant therapies to women and their partners. In addition to pre-conception counselling, we offer services to those experiencing, or at risk of developing, perinatal depressive, anxiety and trauma or stressor-related disorders. Support is also provided to women and their partners who have experienced a pregnancy or childbirth-related loss, e.g. stillbirth, miscarriage or termination.

·      At least 3 years post-registration experience, with specific experience working with perinatal clients or in a complementary field. (For social workers, demonstrated independent caseload management experience with perinatal clients prior to accreditation may be considered).

·      Demonstrated ability to work within a recovery-oriented model, utilising a person/family centred approach.

·      Demonstrated high level communication, interpersonal and problem-solving skills.

·      Ability to work independently under approved professional supervision.

·      Effective caseload management.
