The Mind Room is inviting applications from experienced psychologists wanting to join our growing private practice team. We have just moved into our beautiful custom designed consulting space in Collingwood and would love to invite some new people to come and share it with us.

About The Mind Room

The Mind Room (TMR) is a mental health, wellbeing and performance psychology practice based in Melbourne. Our vision is to create a community where clients and practitioners feel welcome, supported, and inspired. Our core values are integrity, connection, curiosity, action and joy. 

We provide individual therapy, wellbeing and performance coaching, workshops and events with a focus on ACT, CBT, performance psychology, mindfulness and wellbeing science. Our key work streams focus on alleviating mental illness, building wellbeing, and enhancing performance (in life, sport and business). We do this via clinical and coaching services, public group workshops and consultancy services to other organisations. 

Why work for the Mind Room?

  • Access to secondary consultation and general clinical support from our experienced  Clinical Team Manager
  • Exceptional administrative support from our Front of House team

  • Professional Development opportunities through our peer supervision program and access to an extensive resource library and clinical tools

  • Flexibility to work Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and Saturdays 8am to 4pm, with onsite and remote work options.
  • Choice of employment model as either an Independent Contract or Employee (includes benefits such as a wellbeing grant, professional development budget, registration and insurance fees covered, and more).
