Psychology

Our psychologists have a minimum clinical master’s level training and an extensive range of clinical experience working with children, adolescents and adults.

Individual therapy sessions are usually 1 hour in length. During the first session, a thorough assessment will be conducted to allow for the development of a treatment plan. This plan will be developed in collaboration with the patient and reviewed throughout the treatment duration.

Areas of expertise and interest:

  • Grief and loss
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Alcohol and drug dependence
  • Gambling and sex related impulse disorders
  • Disabilities and developmental disorders including, autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Chronic health conditions such as, chronic fatigue, pain and cancer
  • Relationship and family issues.

Our psychologists are registered with Medicare and can provide services to medicare eligible clients.

To receive treatment through Medicare a patient must be referred by a GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. The referring specialist must complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Care Plan before referring a patient to a psychologist. A copy will be made of the Mental Health Plan prior to the initial therapy session.

Eligible patients can generally receive up to 12 individual services each calendar year. The referring doctor must assess the progress after the first six sessions.

We also offer home visits to most areas on the Sunshine Coast for those unable to make it to the clinic.
