The Organisation

Nurture Clinical Psychology has operated as a solo private practice since November 2017, and was established by Adelle Sushames (Clinical Psychologist). Adelle’s professional background and experience includes working with people with disabilities of all ages, autism early intervention, and working with families.

Since opening in 2017, the practice has also attracted a range of adolescent and adult clients. The practice is situated in the beautiful town of Ulverstone, in North-West Tasmania, and overlooks the Leven River and picturesque Dial Range. The practice has a reliable referral base and an excellent local reputation.

What's on offer?

This position offers an opportunity to build clinical skills in a cosy, relaxed environment. Clients feel at home through the use of room design and the option to have a chat over a cup of tea. As a small practice, peer consultation and supervision are more accessible, and we aim to be proactive rather than reactive in supporting clients.

For clinicians who are sick of the rat race, or those just starting out, this position offers a nice balance of support, direction and autonomy.

The successful applicant will also be eligible to apply for the Health Workforce Scholarship Program through HR+. This offers scholarships or bursary payment to cover further study or attendance at courses (including travel and accommodation expenses).
