About our practice

(Also see our Resources page, including clinical handouts and other materials, to understand more about our clinical interests and therapy approaches).

Chris Mackey and Associates is a progressive and innovative psychology practice which offers a wide range of psychology services. We have attracted and retained very highly qualified staff largely as a result of the quality of clinical supervision and training opportunities provided as well as administrative support offered. Our success over 25 years is a result of strong clinical and administrative support systems and our excellent relationship with the wider community including referrers. We have been managing well through the COVID-19 era and the adjustment to telehealth, placing us in a strong position to undertake further recruitment to meet ongoing high demand for our services.

Many clinically trained psychologists are attracted to our service as a result of our advanced clinical psychology registrar program that incorporates extensive free individual and group supervision.

We also provide a very positive social environment, flexibility of hours, and excellent facilities. We offer generous remuneration according to staff training and experience. We have a generous staff development budget and provide an extensive library with a wide range of educational resources.

We function as a centre of excellence in not only the clinical field, but also in the research and business spheres. We have well-developed systems in staff selection, employment, supervision, development and appraisal. We are recognized for our contribution to training which helps to uphold private practice standards nationally.

Most supervision is offered directly by Chris Mackey, who has 35 years’ experience as a supervisor, and who has presented at numerous national and international psychology conferences over the past 25 years.

Our uncompromisingly high standards are maintained firstly by employing specialist psychologists who have completed at least a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology, Clinical Health Psychology, Counselling Psychology or Neuropsychology, often with additional experience in relevant specialist health services.

Even when position vacancies are closed, we invite interested clinical psychologists to contact us any time.
