Sinclair-Strong Consultants Ltd is a medium-sized well-regarded independent psychology service based in Kent. Started by two Australians, Neil Sinclair and Linda Strong, the service has developed from a small part-time practice to a thriving service with a strong referral base in AMH, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disability and trauma/personal injury. Our team currently comprises two Consultant Clinical Psychologists, two Principle Clinical Psychologists, a Forensic Psychologist, a Counselling Psychologist, a trainee Forensic Psychologist, eight Assistant Psychologists and an Office Manager.
Two Principle Clinical or Counselling Psychologists are required to work in our expanding provision within Adult Mental Health, Autism and Learning Disability. Joint posts across specialty areas are possible, and applicants who are below or above the Principle grade may be considered. Both posts benefit from a small team environment with the option of flexible working hours, an interesting and varied caseload, a modern and comfortable work environment, excellent CPD, and in-house European Consultant supervision for EMDR accreditation.
