Psychiatrist Vacancy

Private Psychotherapy Practice, based in Amstelveen

We’re looking for a Psychiatrist

Orthodox Jewish, male, with a clear interest in psychotherapy, in particular psychodynamic thinking, who wants to come and work in our practice as successor to our current psychiatrist who will be retiring. We are a private psychotherapy practice (seven staff members), based in Amstelveen, on the border of Amsterdam, situated in the heart of the Jewish community. We work closely together in an amicable atmosphere.

Our main viewpoints are

  • We avoid working by protocol, every treatment with us is tailor-made.
  • Treating our patients humane is paramount, we don’t go along with the ‘culture of rules’ which is so often leading in the medical world.
  • Our attitude towards our patients is first and foremost based on Chesed. Kindness and compassion towards our patients take central place in our way of working.
  • Torah wisdom is used as an essential addition to treatment. And for part of that wisdom we take inspiration from Chassidism.

What we offer

Setting working days and hours is open for discussion. The activities will consist mainly of psychotherapy, combined with pharmacotherapy and psychodiagnostics.

There is ample room for further deepening of knowledge and skills. Learning takes central stage in our practice, conform Jewish values.

There is in-depth intervision twice a week. On top of this, the current broadly experienced psychiatrist and an experienced psychoanalytic supervisor provide a thorough and profound passing down of knowledge.

If interested, please ask for Z. Haas. For references, please ask for Y.U. Dunner.

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
