Our Team

Meet our Psychologists!

Choosing the right person...

Ask about credentials

Not all Psychologists are created equal. There is a difference in the training and experience between Psychologists so don't be afraid to ask any potential providers about their qualifications and training.

Ask for someone experienced

Don't be afraid to ask us about what kind of experience (and success) we've had in treating the types of issues you have.

Ask about treatment options

Check to see what kind of treatment options may be available for you. Some of the options include weekly face-to-face sessions, block sessions for interstate or overseas residents with follow-up secure web-based sessions. Some of these options may be available for you, but you will need to speak with your Psychologist first to confirm.

 

A bit about our team...

Don't trust your mental health to just anyone...

Our Psychologists only use treatments that have been researched and where evidence has been found to support the approach in dealing with your problem. Our psychology clinic is not located in a GP clinic as we have purposely built rooms designed to help you be more comfortablef and to ensure your privacy. Our clinic is easy to find with a private entrance at the rear of the building to help protect your privacy.

We are pleased to be joined by the following staff...
