We believe in creating a supportive and collaborative environment where psychologists can excel in their careers.

Are you looking for a fresh change and want to be valued for your clinical skills? Do you want flexible working hours, great remuneration, and a cohesive and welcoming culture?

Would you like to surround yourself with experienced, friendly, and client-focused colleagues who value making a difference in people’s lives, working as a team, learning through shared knowledge and experiences, focused professional development, and work-life balance?

If yes, Strategic Psychology is the perfect place for you!

Located in the heart of Canberra, Strategic Psychology is a private practice centered around providing the highest quality of therapy and client care. Established in 2009, Strategic Psychology is now home to 17 brand new purpose-built consulting rooms, a large ‘Marshmallow Room’ (our breakout room named after the Marshmallow experiment), and a warm and comfortable waiting area for clients. 

Our motto is ‘Good People Looking After Good People’. We are a forward-thinking, innovative, and enthusiastic group who think about the little things in therapy, which add up to big differences for our clients.  

Our philosophy is for you, the psychologist, to work with your preferred client group/s because we believe this results in the best outcomes for clients and happy psychologists. Work to your strengths and choose the type of clients you would like to work with.
