Welcome to Eastern Shore Psychology 


We're committed towards helping the people of Hobart, live a happier, healthier and more meaningful life.

Psychology isn't just a job to us! We are absolutely motivated to support you, in order to transform your life for the better. ​

We are centrally located on the Eastern Shore (obviously), in Rosny, just over the bridge (10 min max from center of Hobart - it's really not that far ;) )

Sometimes, seeking help from a mental health professional is the best step you can take, towards embracing and changing the life you have. We genuinely live, eat and breathe all things mental health.


We're a dedicated bunch - We now have 11 psychologists and 2 provisional psychologists, at our Rosny Park office.


We'll be happy to guide you through whatever life is throwing you at the moment and are dedicated to supporting our community

So therapy doesn't need to be grim too

Let's face it, seeing a psychologist, isn't at the top of everyone's "to do" list. We're keen to create an experience for you that makes you want to come to see us. From the moment you walk in, we hope that you'll feel comfortable. Our rooms are sunny, with oodles of natural light and views of a big green tree and Hobart's glorious Mt Wellington. We'll greet you with comfy chairs/couches, a cuppa and even a sneaky chocolate (hey! It releases serotonin! 😂 )

Do you love to support your clients, but feel you don’t get to do that enough in your current workplace? Are you tired of working in an inflexible environment? Do you feel isolated? Would you like clinical endorsement supervision? Do you want more freedom? And would you love to be supported by passionate and friendly clinicians?


These are just some of the benefits of working at Eastern Shore Psychology. Psychology is more than just a job to us. We love to make our clients feel welcome and relaxed from the moment they walk in the door (it’s a particularly warm and inviting office, with natural light, comfy chairs, music, tea and coffee). And we’re passionate about supporting our wider community too, with events such as Let’s Chalk About Mental Health (see here) and our social media presence. Because supporting mental health needn’t be mysterious. We want to help everyone reach out, should they need it and drop the stigma around mental health in the community.


About you…

I like people to join the team, based on who you are. Your warmth, passion, desire to help others and openness to learn and grow, as a clinician. I’d love you to join the like minded members of Eastern Shore Psychology if you…

  • Are motivated by supporting clients, to the best of your ability

  • Llove to connect with other clinicians and support each other

  • Take responsibility for your growth, as a clinician

  • Value making a difference to community

  • Are open to thinking outside the box in the treatments you offer and how you support the community

  • Are not terrified of helping us out with our social media presence 😉


Let’s catch up for a cuppa today, whether you’re a new Masters in Clinical Psych grad or you have many years experience. There’s a place (support and many referrals) waiting here for you!


PS I'm also, looking for social workers, occupational therapists or other allied health.


Sarah 😊
