Location: Either remote and/or in-clinic.
Hours: Flexible and from as little as 4 hours per week.
At Painless, we know pain. More importantly, we know that pain isn’t just a symptom—it’s an intimate part of someone's life story. In our practice, we work to explore this complex relationship, using an approach grounded in the enactive model of care, which we believe opens the door to understanding pain in a more nuanced and effective way. We're inviting a psychologist with a passion for working with chronic pain, to join us.
Our team, while diverse in background, shares a common goal: to reshape the understanding and treatment of chronic pain. We’re not just looking at symptoms and medical histories; we're considering the whole person and the context of their pain within their life story.
At Painless, your role is integral to our clinic and our patient's lives. But we also understand that you are likely to have other professional commitments, which is why we've designed a flexible role that can fit into your life with as little as 4 hours per week. Joining us doesn't mean leaving your other pursuits; instead, it's an opportunity to extend your impact in the field of chronic pain, broaden your professional reach, and deepen your expertise.
Your interests or experiences intersect with pain science, neuroplasticity, trauma, or rehabilitation. You value the complex relationship between physical and emotional health, and the role psychological factors play in the experience of pain. Guided by empathy and compassion, you are ready to join an interdisciplinary team, eager to both contribute to and learn from our collective knowledge. You are dedicated to patient-focused care and are always willing to expand your skills and knowledge. You thrive in environments that prioritise open communication and collective decision-making.
A four-year undergraduate degree in psychology from an accredited institution is required. A postgraduate degree (Master's or Doctoral level) in psychology, while not mandatory, is viewed favourably. You must have valid and current registration with the Psychology Board of Australia, part of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
At Painless, we're committed to reshaping the understanding of pain care. We're driven by our mission, and we value our team as our greatest asset. If you're a compassionate psychologist ready to push the boundaries of pain care, we'd love to hear from you.
