About US

The Skill Collective is a dynamic private practice in Subiaco, WA. We have great relationships with our referral network who are psychologically-minded and take great care in supporting their clients’ mental health and wellbeing. We see adolescents and older adults, and our clients are ready-to-engage individuals looking to build skills to make sustainable changes to their wellbeing, mental health, and performance. In addition to the excellent clinical support provided by our psychologists, clients are also able to access evidence-based resources developed by our team.

We are strongly evidence-based in our approach, and use a range of treatment modalities including CBT, ACT, Positive Psychology, Solution-focused therapy, Schema therapy, EMDR and Motivational Interviewing.

Our new location is right near the Subiaco train and bus stations, and walking distance to Coles, Woolworths, and Bunnings. We also have access to a swimming pool and gym facilities.



WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH:

  • A warm and approachable manner, with the ability to establish good rapport with clients and build a good working relationship with clients.

What working with us looks like:

  • Our clients are friendly and motivated to make sustainable changes to enhance their quality of life. We enjoy working collaboratively with clients to embed skills so they are able to self-manage in the longer-term.

  • Your clinic days will consist of providing excellent clinical assessment and evidence-based treatment, with a focus on helping clients to embed change in a sustainable manner, and maintaining clinical files and correspondence.Our admin team supports you by coordinating your diary and taking bookings, ensuring a good fit between client and psychologist. We answer client queries, liaise with third parties (GPs, insurers, medicare), and help you stay on track with Medicare compliance, freeing you up to focus on working with clients. We also help you cultivate your niche.

  • We are a supportive team of psychologists, who are excited to learn from each other about their niches. There are opportunities for formal and ad hoc peer support and supervision, and we have a fun team. We are also mindful of sustainable work practices and preventing burnout. Our director is a clinical psychologist and a Board-Approved supervisor and can supervise clinical psychology registrars for their endorsement.

     

Additional benefits to working in our practice:

  • We have a large collection of online resources for clients (via our resource library and blog) as well as an internal clinician library.
