Join Us

Cova Psychology was created for therapists in Melbourne who are highly skilled, passionate about delivering quality psychological therapy, and who want to have the environment and supports around them to match. At Cova, we aim to provide you with the highest level of support and guidance, so that you can focus on you and your clients! We know that when therapists feel supported and comfortable in their environment, they do their best work, and this benefit flows down to their clients. 

We’re keen to support a range of disciplines – whether you’re a psychologist, clinical psychologist EMDR therapist, a mental health accredited social worker or an occupational therapist – we’d love to hear from you! We support our therapists to work face to face in the Melbourne CBD as well as from home via telehealth.

We’ve outlined some features that characterise our team below. If our practice sounds like it could be a good fit for you, send through your cover letter and CV to contact@covapsychology.com
