What’s different at The Talk Shop

The Talk Shop’s Thrive Early Career Psychologist Program smooths your transition into professional life, making our private practice the best place to start your psychology career.

That’s because we do things differently at The Talk Shop.

Other practices may run their staff into the ground, tie you to a rigid schedule, or be driven by making money – rather than making a difference.

We’re not like that.

We care for you, so you can care for our Clients. We don’t run you into the ground with a conveyor belt of Clients who don’t match your skills and interests. Instead, we guide and support you as you develop your professional skills in a collaborative team environment of early career and highly experienced Psychologists and Practice Managers.

You’ll earn an enviable income and you’ll also have time to improve Clients’ lives and time to enjoy your own.
