"Elementa is a pleasure to work at for so many reasons. The rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated and soundproof. There is a sense of ease working here, and for my clients who enter a relaxing space when they come in. The intake and admin team are amazing, with a strong sense of respect for the client and practitioners. Communication across the team is wonderful and I have found everyone very responsive to my needs and suggestions about procedures. Having a large professional team, all of whom are Clinical Psychologists, ensures regular peer supervision on an individual and group level, with access to experts in various therapy modalities."

"It was the supportive and welcoming team environment that drew me in, and what I enjoy most working for Elementa Psychology. There is a wonderful balance of professionalism and high-quality mental health service to clients, yet consideration, understanding and compassion for my own wellbeing and professional growth as an early career psychologist. The work itself; challenging and rewarding and everyone who works here are genuinely caring and lovely people - which makes turning up to work and working here enjoyable!"
