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.

Why Work With 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 Role Will Encompass

  • Understanding-Informed Therapy: Your role involves providing therapy sessions that consider the entirety of an individual's pain experience, bringing together the physical, mental, and emotional aspects.
  • Enactive Approach Implementation: As we transition towards the enactive model of pain care, you will serve a pivotal role in offering therapeutic interventions that recognise the multi-dimensional nature of pain.
  • Interdisciplinary Collaboration: Your psychological perspective will enrich our team's collective exploration of diverse treatment strategies, adding depth and a nuanced understanding.
  • Digital Communication: Our digital platform is your canvas for conducting consultations, collaborating with our team and clients, and fostering an empathetic dialogue.
  • Continual Learning and Contribution: Staying updated with the latest developments in pain science and psychology, you'll bring fresh insights to our team and contribute to our shared knowledge base.
  • Compassionate Support: Through empathy and emotional support, you'll help our clients feel acknowledged and validated in their experiences.

Who We Believe You Are

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.

What We Provide

  • A Collaborative Space: A supportive, interconnected team where every voice is valued.
  • Professional Growth: Opportunities for continuous education and training, encouraging your professional development.
  • Empathy-Driven Culture: A work culture that prioritises empathy, understanding, and authentic human connection.

Education & Registration

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.
