Get to know us! 

Hello prospective Mindscapers! Welcome to Mindscape Psychology and Allied Health. We are the leading adolescent and adult focused private practice in Sydney’s Inner West. We are centrally located on Norton St in Leichhardt, with easy public transport access and close to parking, shops, good coffee and great food. We love our Inner West community, and take opportunities to meet with local businesses, and network and connect with other practitioners in the area.

Our space is bright and inviting, with 3 consultation rooms and a comfy reception area. Our mission is to provide outstanding mental health care to the Inner West community, which to us means person-centred, tailored therapy, that best suits the client’s needs. For our clients, it means feeling understood, appreciated, and respected for who they are and what has happened in their lives.

Our team books in daily communal breaks so we always have time to decompress, chat, and have a sense of belonging. We love a laugh and a catch-up, and have set up the practice in a way that focuses on preventing burn out and promoting team wellbeing. We offer fortnightly individual peer supervision, monthly “Group Soup”, an annual 2-night team retreat, and basically use any excuse for tea and (usually vegan) treats.

Why work with us?

  • You have a choice of starting with us as a contractor or as an employee with all the perks. Either way, you get to pick your days / hours, the number of clients you want to see, and we will support you to make it happen.
  • On top of your base salary, employee perks include:
    • In-house individual and group supervision
    • An annual CPD allowance
    • A new laptop, or a technology allowance if you BYO
    • 4 Mental Health days per year, on top of annual leave and personal / carer’s leave
    • Membership to the Australian Association of Psychologists Inc (AAPi), Australia’s peak member association for psychologists. Membership includes access to the DSM library, journal access, discounted insurance, and a huge CPD library.
    • Entertainment allowance which includes activities, Christmas parties, team dinners, and the 2-night team retreat mid-year
  • You will have opportunities to lead and build projects such as groups, webinars, online courses, etc., and we will mentor and support you from brainstorming to marketing and implementation.
  • If you want career progression, look no further. We are all about supporting our team to take on new challenges and flourish, whether through becoming a supervisor or gaining management and business skills. As Mindscape expands and grows, we would love for you to grow with us!


Feel Supported with Mindscape

  • We are an inclusive and collaborative practice, and we value diverse backgrounds and experiences. We bring our whole selves to therapy, and you can too.
  • We value connection, community, and contribution in our practice. You can get to know the local area, understand the needs of the demographics of people you’ll see, and collaborate with the team to build strong relationships within and beyond the practice.
  • You will have space to be creative and inventive. If you like trying new things and playing with new ideas, we can’t wait to hear about them!
  • You’ll have a wellbeing-focused diary. We’ve heard all those stories about private practitioners burning out, and we’ve been there too. That’s why we take active steps to prevent burn out and focus on the wellbeing of our team, including lots of breaks, ample admin time, supervision, mental health days, and of course, cake.
