Clinical Psychology Registrar Program

Psychology Consultants is inviting Clinical Psychology Registrars to apply for four positions in our Clinical Psychology Registrar Program, commencing July 2021. The program has been carefully designed to support clinical psychology registrars to obtain endorsement as Clinical Psychologists.

The program involves two possible streams: (1) clinical psychology and (2) clinical psychology with a focus on compassion focused therapy (CFT). The clinical psychology stream is designed to provide a broad range of experiences and development of a range of skills and approaches in clinical psychology. Within this stream there may be scope to develop specific interest topics and specific therapeutic approaches where relevant to supervisor expertise.

The clinical psychology with a focus on CFT stream is designed to support the clinical psychology registrar who is interested in deepening their knowledge and skills in CFT and compassionate mind training (CMT) in both individual and group formats, and is specifically designed for those wishing to pursue their career in this exciting, developing field of practice.


ABOUT US

We are a team of Clinical Psychologists providing evidence-based therapeutic approaches for people of all ages to deal with emotional and behavioral problems such as anxiety, depression, and relationship problems that affect their daily lives.

Our offices are based at Morningside and Newmarket with a large team of experienced clinical and general psychologists with a wide range of interests and skills. We value the diversity of approaches and perspectives our team of professionals bring to the practice.

We provide a broad range of local, national and international clinical psychology services to promote the well-being of individuals, couples, families and communities, with an overarching aspiration of helping people flourish and discover their full potential. We believe in personalised, precision healthcare aimed at delivering the right treatment at the right time. Each person is an individual. Therefore, we seek to tailor our approaches to each clinical situation.


ABOUT THE PROGRAM

We are excited to offer these clinical psychology registrar positions to support recent clinical psychology graduates to gain clinical endorsement in an efficient and stimulating manner. Our directors, Kathryn Smith and Stan Steindl, each bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in their particular areas of interest, and will be providing the supervision.

Kathryn has particular interests in anxiety, health anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, insomnia and works within cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) models. Kathryn will be supervising registrars in the clinical psychology stream. Stan interests lie in areas such as anxiety and depression, trauma, and addictions, and he works within CBT, ANCT, motivational interviewing (MI) and CFT). He will be supervising registrars in the clinical psychology with a focus on CFT stream.

We have developed a two-year program that satisfies all the requirements for clinical endorsement. 

AHPRAs minimum requirements for endorsement following a Masters in Clinical Psychology are:

              80 hours combined of group and individual supervision

              80 hours of active CPD

              3000 practice hours over 88 weeks

Psychology Consultants receive referrals from across Brisbane to our two practices at Morningside and Newmarket. As such, clinical psychology registrars can expect to gain experience with a range of presentations and ages, working in individual and group formats, all within a collegial and supportive atmosphere.
