We’re always keeping our eyes peeled for experienced, ethical and friendly psychologists to join our team.
If you’re seeking an exceptional working environment, we’d love to hear from you!

Here’s a little bit about us

Our Practice Director

Our practice director, Dr Jacqueline Baulch, is a Clinical Psychologist. Jacqueline is hands-on, responsive and dedicated to creating an ethical, client-centred practice where psychologists feel supported and valued.

Support Team

We have a caring and knowledgeable Support Team and Support Team Manager who look after both our clients and psychologists. They take care of most reception and administration duties, leaving our psychologists to focus their time and energy on clients.

Referrals

We have a constant stream of referrals so our psychologists are never concerned about having a quiet calendar. At the same time though, we believe in balance and self-care, so we encourage our psychologists to take breaks from new referrals when they want or need to.

Our Clients

Our clients come with a range of presenting issues and from a variety of backgrounds, so we are lucky to be able to offer varied and rewarding clinical caseloads. We do not work with third parties such as EAP, Workcover or TAC. We also don’t provide court reports or assessments.

Beautiful Spaces

We provide beautifully appointed, professional consulting rooms. To see pictures of our spaces visit the “locations” tab on our website.

Our Network

We have strong links with GPs, psychiatrists, allied health practitioners and other psychologists. A significant number of clients find us through word of mouth from current clients and through our website and social media.

Three Central Locations

We are based in three central locations – Kensington, Melbourne CBD and Fitzroy North. Our Kensington clinic is a stand-alone converted warehouse that was renovated at the beginning of 2017. Our Fitzroy North and CBD rooms are located in in the same building as a holistic health centre.

Community

We understand that private practice can be isolating, so in addition to support from our Director and Support Team, we facilitate peer supervision, team meetings, complimentary professional development evenings, a private Facebook group and monthly team newsletter. We also provide a comprehensive induction process and an informal buddy system for new team members. Although our psychologists work independently from a clinical perspective, we are fortunate to have a lovely sense of community and collaboration within our team.

Attractive Terms

We offer competitive remuneration, genuinely flexible working conditions and a transparent, non-restrictive Independent Contractor arrangement. We encourage and value our psychologists working in other settings because we believe this fosters a fresh, innovative and dynamic team.

We are looking for psychologists who have:

  • Experience and confidence working independently with a wide range of presenting issues.
  • Strong interpersonal and organisation skills.
  • Demonstrated commitment to ongoing professional development and group or individual supervision.
  • A Masters or Doctoral degree psychology.
  • Current endorsement as a fully registered psychologist with AHPRA.
  • Eligibility for registration with Medicare.
  • Professional and public indemnity insurance.
  • Current Working With Children check and police check.
  • Access to their own laptop, printer and shredding.
  • The capacity to see clients at least two, afternoons and evenings per week or on Saturday, with the potential to expand from there.

If you have any questions about the position please email our Director, Dr Jacqueline Baulch at info@innermelbpsychology.com.au  or call 9376 1958.

Here’s what our psychologists have to say about working at IMCP

I’ve been at IMCP since 2015. Jacqueline has a warmth and sincerity of manner. She is very approachable and willing to assist, and she demonstrates compassion and creativity in her leadership. There is a good sense of community within the team with the options of regular peer supervision and professional development. At the same time, there is plenty of independence, flexibility and respect for the preferences of individual clinicians. I have found the clinical work at IMCP to be very rewarding. There is a steady stream of appropriate referrals, with a good range of presentations. I feel very lucky to be working here and I would highly recommend taking up a position at IMCP.

Helen Shepherd, Clinical Psychologist

I absolutely love working at IMCP. Jacqueline truly values and respects every member of her team and works hard to ensure that IMCP is a positive experience for psychologists and clients alike. Jacqueline does a fantastic job of fostering a strong sense of community and support while also offering flexibility and autonomy as well as opportunities for ongoing professional development. Jacqueline and her support team are so approachable and responsive, often going the extra mile to help out. This made a huge difference as I transitioned into private practice. I also appreciate the effort and attention to detail that Jacqueline puts into the beautiful and calming clinic spaces, something my clients often comment on. If you asked me to describe the kind of private practice that would perfectly suit my working style and temperament I would describe IMCP!”

Catherine Morey-Nase, Psychologist

I have worked with IMCP for 18 months and I am impressed with the attention to detail that is regularly paid to the practice by the Director, from the decoration of the rooms to the systems and processes in place in the background that keep us running smoothly. I have complete faith in the Support Team to take care of my administrative needs and I am confident in the strong referral networks that have been established meaning there is no fear of an empty calendar. I would highly recommend working at IMCP as you are guaranteed to feel valued, supported and inspired. No kidding, I shed a tear at my orientation because it felt like a dream come true to be working in an environment that ticks all of the boxes!

Sarah Dymond, Psychologist

Like our clients, we as clinicians also need to find the perfect fit when we chose to work in private practice and I truly believe IMCP offers that perfect fit. The spaces are gorgeous, so inviting and warm which makes delivering services so much easier. Jacq and her support team are incredibly supportive, there is no question too small.  I value being able to work to my strengths and feel that referrals are allocated accordingly. I also get the opportunity to liaise with other clinicians both in clinic and in regular PD initiatives set up by Jacq which makes private practice feel less isolating.

Melanie McInneny, Clinical Psychologist

Joining the IMCP team has been a very rewarding opportunity. It has assisted me to fully launch into  private practice and has enabled me to rely on a steady stream of referrals to support the growth of my private practice.

Meeting Jacqueline was another great experience because her vision for IMCP aligns well with my values. Support, belief in each practitioners high capacity, autonomy and the beautifully created counselling rooms which add an extra layer of nurturance to both clients and the psychologists that spend their time there.

The regular (optional) meet ups with other colleagues in the practice provides a sense of support that continues to support the work I do.  I know I can refer internally within IMCP because there are many practitioners who have specialty areas, which is an added bonus and provides continuity of service and support for IMCP clients.

The amazing work the support team do is of a very high standard. Appropriate referrals and emails that are always so friendly, in a fast paced world,  it is a pleasant and notable point of difference.

Georgia Pierakos, Couples Counsellor

It’s no exaggeration to say that working at IMCP is like working in a dream practice for me. Jacqueline Baulch, our Director, is responsive, approachable, and compassionate and takes the time to look after clients and psychologists alike. As practitioners, we have the opportunity for autonomy, independence and flexibility in terms of how we work within the practice, as well as for gaining – and helping to build – a sense of community and support alongside our many wonderful and experienced colleagues working at IMCP. I also very much value the incredible administrative support offered by the Support Team, who always go above and beyond to assist both clients and psychologists in a range of helpful and important ways. Finally, I adore working in the most aesthetically pleasing and calming environment that I have ever had the pleasure of working in. The rooms and spaces at IMCP are always commented upon and valued by clients. In short, I feel truly blessed to work at IMCP, with all of the attention to detail and care that Jacqueline has put into – and continues to put into – creating and developing this beautiful practice.

Kyli Hedrick, Psychologist

Such a great place to work! Jacqueline is an approachable, responsive, flexible and supportive director, with a clear vision and organisational talent. The newly renovated Kensington clinic has been transformed into a beautifully relaxing place. The Support Team is staffed by young clinicians-to-be (Masters and Honours level Psychology and Counselling students) doing great work ‘behind the scenes’ admin work so that you can focus on being a psychologist. There’s also a lovely team spirit at IMCP, with regular team meetings and peer supervision.

Dr Gerke Witt, Clinical Psychologist

Working at IMCP has been a hugely positive experience. I feel that Jacqueline cares about my personal wellbeing, career development and work-life balance. Jacqueline is dedicated to growing her business, and she is always coming up with new initiatives to improve the clinic process and the client experience.

Chen Xu, Psychologist

Inner Melbourne Clinical Psychology has provided me with an exceptional introduction to private practice and a supportive atmosphere for further cultivating my clinical skills. Since joining the practice in September last year, I have experienced a comprehensive orientation to the practice which has been made possible through the guidance and knowledge of the support team as well as Jacqueline’s warm, responsive and intentional approach as director. The practice has an extensive referral base and a strong collegial environment to facilitate ongoing team building and professional development. I count myself lucky to be a part of such a wonderful team and would highly recommend this practice to psychologists across the career lifespan who are wanting to expand their clinical practice within a supportive and diverse environment.

Priscilla Weaver, Psychologist

IMCP provides a great working environment in which staff work well together to ensure that clients receive a professional and a high-quality service. Our Director Dr Jacqueline Baulch has a great eye for detail, is very approachable and responsive, and considers the well being of clients and staff alike. Psychologists enjoy the benefits of a well organised practice, operating within beautiful spaces. There are networking opportunities through regular team meetings and peer supervision. It’s a wonderful community and I feel peace of mind knowing that I am part of an effective workplace.

Elke Ponczek, Psychologist
I love working at IMCP; it is the dream workplace in ways I could not imagine before starting there. Thankfully, the clinic director Jacqueline lacks neither imagination nor clinical/business acumen. She has created an exceptional clinic for clinicians and clients alike.
Jacqueline is generous with her clinical and business expertise, and provides regular, free group supervision and professional development opportunities. Jacqueline takes care of marketing and business development, providing clinicians with a steady stream of suitable referrals alongside the freedom to focus on their clinical work. The Support Team are skilled in the art of intake, and provide a comprehensive intake process which supports clinicians to work within their chosen areas of practice. There are numerous opportunities to connect with colleagues day-to-day and at professional development and social gatherings.
I highly recommend IMCP for clinicians seeking a balance between support and autonomy, together with networking and professional development opportunities, and thoughtfully designed spaces in which to focus on their clinical work.
Iris Lockyer, Psychologist

Jacqueline works incredibly hard to create a relaxing, safe, and aesthetically pleasing space for clients and psychologists. She is so supportive and approachable, and allows her psychologists the flexibility to make their own decisions about how they’d like to work within the client-centred framework of the clinic. Jacqueline has also created a wonderful, supportive team environment, with an incredibly passionate, skilled, and supportive team of clinicians and support staff. People talk about private practice being isolating, but that definitely isn’t the experience at IMCP. Had I not moved to QLD to take up my dream job in psycho-oncology, I would have stayed at IMCP indefinitely.

Diane Geytenbeek, Clinical Psychologist

It’s difficult to imagine a more supportive and nurturing work environment than IMCP. Our clinic director Jacqueline is approachable, understanding and dedicated to her team. As a clinician, I have benefited from the established relationships with medical practitioners and I’m constantly blown away by the warmth and diligence of our support team. To work at IMCP is to be part of an inclusive culture that continually fosters growth and development. Opportunities to connect in the form of peer supervision, professional development and social gatherings are valued as are the beautiful and thoughtfully designed spaces that we welcome our clients into. I’ll forever be grateful my career in private practice started here at IMCP.

Clare Burton, Psychologist

IMCP is a supportive and friendly working environment. Clients always comment on how beautiful the space is. The Support Team is efficient, responsive and helpful, making my job so much smoother.
