About Us

Due to further growth and to meet client demand, Sensational Healing Allied Health is seeking a Senior Mental Health Clinician and an emerging Mental Health Clinician to join our multidisciplinary clinic at Ripley Town Centre. Our highly skilled and motivated team consists of occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists, mental health nurses and allied health assistants, and all clinicians are well supported by a wonderful Client Care team, who look after all the administrative elements of your role. Our core client groups include children and young people who live with neurodiversity, predominantly including developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder or developmental trauma. Attachment theory and family centred practice are our two core theoretical frameworks that guide our practice. 

Our clinic is spacious and well resourced, we provide excellent working conditions including flexible working hours, internal and external professional development and a mix of different clients to suit your clinical style and individual learning and developmental goals. 

About the Roles:

We have a fantastic opportunity for a new graduate or emerging therapist  to further to develop their clinical skills across paediatrics, child mental health, disability, or a combination of all three to meet your individual interests and professional development goals. 

We are also seeking a more experienced clinician who has skills in a variety of therapeutic modalities as well as managing mental health risk and crises, who can support our emerging therapists to develop their skills. Our senior clinicians also have the opportunity to contribute to quality improvement and implementation of our strategic plan and vision. 

The role is primarily based at our Ripley Valley clinic but will also include offering occasional community based services to the Ipswich, Springfield, Lockyer Valley and Scenic Rim regions, as required, dependent on client need. 

The role will also provide opportunity to run groups such as client skill development groups, parent education groups or training to the community services, education and health sectors. 

You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other allied health disciplines. Our multidisciplinary approach means our therapists work together so clients can get the most out of their therapy and reach their goals successfully. 

You will also be supervised individually and in groups by our senior therapists, who have a combined 30+ years experience across paediatrics, child mental health and disability. You can also access cross-disciplinary clinical supervision to learn new skills from other therapists working in other disciplines.
