Developmental/Counselling/ Clinical Psychologists for Paediatric Practice

Are you a talented, committed and engaging therapist? Please apply!

Sensational Kids has been running for 13 years offering tailor-made, individual and group therapy to our community. It is a company based on strong values of integrity, learning, fun, professionalism and innovation.

We see kids aged 0-18 and provide child and family-centred therapy incorporating a range of therapeutic models including DIR Floortime well as other models for best practice.

We have the following positions available: Counselling/ Developmental/ Clinical Psychologist



- Early career clinicians welcome to apply (minimum 1 year experience please)

- We are looking for someone interested in working weekdays as well as Saturdays (but not essential)

- You must be willing to be trained in DIR Floortime

- More experienced clinicians will start with or work towards a leadership position within the team including supervision of more junior team members.

- Caseload will be a mix of face to face and telehealth 

Who we are looking for: 

We are very careful with who we select to be part of our team, as our team is pretty special. We are looking for fun, energetic, positive team members who don't mind a challenge, thrive on an interesting and varied caseload and who are happy to support and be supported by our team.

We are looking for a therapist who is flexible, mature and knows how to ask for help when they need it. We are also importantly seeking someone who is happy working with a largely NDIS caseload (disability) and who is keen to further develop their clinical, professional and supervisory skills. Experience working with a paediatric caseload is important (student placements also considered) working with a wide range of presentations.

If you join, you will be part of a brilliant team of Speech Pathologists, OTs, Psychologists, Dietitians and Music Therapists. We work hard and play hard too!

As a Psychologist on our team you will provide assessment and treatment of children and adolescents presenting with a wide range of issues, including behavioural, social, mental health and support/ training for parents. That’s our bread and butter. You may also be obliged to eat cupcakes if it’s someone’s birthday, attend our awesome end of year party or the many social events we run throughout the year (we have some mean lawn bowlers in the team and even better wine and cheese connoisseurs!) or take part in our whole team training days or frequent PDs.

Your role would also include:

- Assessment of children for various mental health conditions, cognition, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ADOS-2, ADI-R, WPPSI, WISC, CARS, WIAT-III, Vineland etc) - we can train for ADOS if needed.

- Medicare reporting, NDIS reporting and liaison with GPs and other professionals such as teachers.

If this sounds like your cup of tea we’d love to hear from you.
