Fixed Term until July 2023

Part Time FTE

Remuneration as per MECA guidelines

The Diabetes and Renal Services are seeking an experienced Health Psychologist to join their innovative team. This will also include working in the Diabetes in Pregnancy clinic as part of a pilot project (the first in Aotearoa).

The Service is based at Middlemore Hospital with outpatient care delivered across multiple satellite sites in the Counties Manukau area.

This role involves providing psychological assessment and treatment services for patients attending these satellite sites and may involve inpatient work.

Assessments undertaken by health psychologists provide an understanding of the person and their difficulties from a broad bio-psycho-social and developmental perspective and include the use of detailed psychological, cognitive and behavioural assessment interviews, and the use of standardised assessments tools.

Interventions commonly used, include individual therapy (often with a strong CBT and / or ACT focus), therapeutic groups, family therapy, psychoeducational groups, behaviour management, and case consultation.

Previous clinical experience in a healthcare setting would be an advantage. As this role will potentially involve working with adolescents, experience in working with this population group would also be ideal.
