Aulakh Psychological & Counselling Services

Aulakh Psychological & Counselling Services is a well-established, vibrant, growing, and collegial practice in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Our recently renovated and expanded office features a large waiting area/lobby, attractively decorated and furnished offices, a kitchenette, a back entrance through the kitchen, ample free parking and wheelchair accessibility. We are centrally located in the north end of Halifax within the Gladstone Professional Building. Our lobby and offices are spacious enough to comfortably permit in-person services in adherence with Department of Health COVID-19 social distancing rules.

We employ a full-time Practice Administrator who provides comprehensive administrative support, including direct billing to some key insurance companies to help clients who cannot afford to pay directly. We provide an online calendaring and charting system (for those who want this), regular peer consultation meetings, social events, and ad-hoc consultations between clinicians are common. We offer in-person and tele-psychology (via telephone or end-to-end encrypted video conferencing) sessions to clients. We have a steady source of referrals and there are opportunities for a psychologist to readily build a client base.

Given the referral demands, we are seeking a qualified Registered Psychologist, or Candidate Registrar, to be a part of our team. We are looking for a client-focussed candidate who likes to work collaboratively with clients and other health care professionals. The successful candidate would be warm, ethically minded, and have a fundamental respect for the clients we work with. The successful candidate must be a Registered Psychologist, or Candidate Register, of good standing in the province of Nova Scotia and be able to/have:

•    Implement evidence-based treatment with clients,

•    Previous experience working with adults and teens,

•    Experience working with couples, families, and children is considered an asset

•   Previous experience conducting mental health assessments

 Our practice encourages and provides supports for on-going professional training and consultation. This position is for either a part-time or full-time registered or candidate registrar psychologist and has flexibility around hours worked. We ask any interested psychologists to forward your information in confidence to:
