Shift Psychological and Counselling Services

Shift Psychological and Counselling Services is looking for a match. We are seeking a psychologist with the shared vision of having a thriving practice, engaged collegial relationships, and supportive practice management. Our practice is located in a thoughtful office setting, and we operate with authenticity and humanistic values at our core.

We are an established and expanding practice that provides exceptional counselling services and administrative client care to a diverse population of young adults, adults, and couples. Our practice manager exceeds in providing tailored practitioner support, including best-fit client-matching and autonomy in work hours. This support also includes full-scale administrative services such as client scheduling and payment processing, which allows practitioners more time for clinical consultation and professional wellness.

You will benefit from steady referrals working within the primary areas of clinical or counselling psychology, using empirically validated, trauma-informed practices. Experience with Emotion-Focused Therapy for couples would be an asset, but is not required. 

You will be supported in both in-person and telepsychology services. Ongoing telepsychology services will continue to be supported, which also makes this a great opportunity for psychologists who live outside of HRM and who wish to work remotely.

Our practice is located in a renovated heritage building on vibrant Cornwallis Street within peninsular Halifax. All of our offices feature exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and natural light from large windows. The Halifax Commons are steps away from our front door, as are a wide variety of local shops and services. Compensation is favourable, with room for growth within the practice. 

To apply for this opportunity, you must be a registered or candidate-registered psychologist with the Nova Scotia Board of Examiners in Psychology, and have proof of individual professional liability insurance. Ideal candidates will have the autonomy and drive to work independently, while also valuing connection and collaboration with colleagues.
