We are currently exploring options for expanding our small team by bringing new practitioners into our horizontally structured and bidirectionally supportive work environment.
Perhaps you are a practitioner who has recently moved to the area, or you have been here for a while and aren’t sure how to set up a practice independently. Maybe you have a practice but you don’t have as many service users as you would like or you are interested in up-skilling in psychological consultation, or working in a multicultural team environment.
As a member of our team, you will be provided direct patient work, a working space for sessions within our existing clinic in Bern City Centre and resources to successfully fulfill patients’ needs, including clinical supervision.
New practitioners to our team would be:
- Inspired psychosocial counselors, psychologists or psychotherapists trained in empirically supported mental health intervention methods.
- Individuals with personal or professional experience with the immigrant or expat communities.
- Individuals fluent in non-official languages in Switzerland (English, Polish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Arabic, Pashto, Dari, Farsi, etc).
- As an independent practitioner (not employee status) you will be working within a collaborative environment which permits supportive autonomy.
- Available workdays are currently Wednesday and/or Friday (however this may be negotiable).
Our horizontal structure furnishes a platform to approach our patients’ treatment in a multi faceted, collaborative approach between practitioners. Under the clinical supervision of Dr. Lauren Deimling Johns, we work together to coordinate high quality multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural care. This structure encompasses collaboration with Licensed Psychologist Sabrina Nizzo and Psychotherapist in training Fatma Lassoued on clinical care and consultation and our Director of Communication and Design, Syl Hillier, on administrative strategies regarding patient communication, marketing, design and invoicing.
