Could use Compile to get a speed improvement. below shows one way to go about this.
In[445]:= myArcTanC2 = Compile[{{xy, _Real, 1}},
With[{x = xy[[1]], y = xy[[2]]},
If[x == 0. && y == 0., 0., ArcTan[x, y]]]];
In[452]:= psiFieldFinder = Compile[{{gfield, _Real, 3}},
Map[myArcTanC2, Transpose[gfield, {3, 1, 2}], {2}],
CompilationOptions -> {"ExpressionOptimization" -> True,
"InlineCompiledFunctions" -> True},
CompilationTarget -> "C"];
In[453]:= Do[psiField2 = psiFieldFinder[gradfield], {100}] // Timing
Out[453]= {0.85, Null}
If you intend to do this on the same array then pre-transposing, and removing that step from the compiled function, might give a further slight improvement.
For norms you might get better speed using Sqrt[arg1.arg2].
