Professional and experienced clinical psychologists:
All our clinicians are fully qualified with post-graduate Doctoral or Masters Level of training, or equivalent in psychology. We are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), which sets the standards and policies for registered health practitioners and regulates them to protect the public. All our psychologists are formally recognised as Specialist Clinical Psychologists by both Medicare Australia and the Australian Psychological Society.
We are experienced in a diverse range of empirically validated therapies and treatments, and have worked with individuals and groups of all ages in government, community and private settings. Our professional team of clinicians has also worked in teaching, research and supervision within the field of psychology and we are always striving towards further professional development so that we can provide the most effective practices to all our clients.
A safe, secure environment:
our confidentiality and privacy is ensured at our clinics, and we do everything we can to maintain a warm, friendly and non-judgemental environment.
Individualised approaches to therapy:
With such a diverse range of clinical experience, we can tailor your therapeutic treatment to your individual need and circumstances.Therapy is developed collaboratively to address individually targeted goals to allow you to always get the most out of your treatment. See our range of services here.
Collaborative relationships: Our aim is to work both with you and referring professionals to ensure all parties are involved in the process of therapy. We want you to feel informed and involved the whole way through, and to make sure your treatment is a collaborative effort towards successful outcome.
Affordability: We firmly believe that professional psychological services should be easily accessible to everyone, and that cost should not be a factor in preventing you from seeking help. This is why we offer affordable standard and concessional rates for all our services, as well as personalised payment plans and bulk billing at the discretion of the clinic.
