Work with Us


Be part of the change you want to see

We welcome your application to work with us at Blackwood River Clinic. We firmly believe our keywords of Belonging, Respect and Commitment but to us they are more than words. They are our beliefs, our vision and our worked example.


I am part of all that I have met”.  Alfred Lord Tennyson

We believe that purpose and independence are defined and learned within the wellness journey but it is a journey with others, not in isolation.

We must give of ourselves to others in order to receive ourselves.

Every encounter with fellow human beings and nature builds connections and defines us.

We help our patients to belong and contribute to each other, the local community and their environment.


Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of the things that matter least”.  Johann Wolfgang Goethe

We respect that the health and balance of mind, body and spirit are critical to the wellness of our patients and provide programs that aim to develop the whole person.

We work with our patients to develop respect for themselves, others and the environment through mindfulness and connection.

Mutual respect is fostered between patients, clinicians, staff, families and supporters and is the cornerstone of the delivery of programs and the achievement of our goals.


“Habits are at first cobwebs, then cables”  Spanish proverb

We aspire to provide the necessary environmental, therapeutic, emotional and physical conditions to enable our patients to commit to change no matter how small.

Mindfulness, meditation, connection with nature and evidence-based psychotherapy build the foundation for this commitment to change.

So if you are as passionate about providing quality service as we are please talk with us.
