Why do I need to see a psychologist?
Seeing a psychologist can be helpful for a variety of reasons, from having a place to debrief about life stressors, through to treatment for more specific concerns.
The aims of therapy for children and adults, is to provide a safe and confidential space to work on ways to improve your emotional wellbeing.
Psychologists are also able to provide support to individuals who are self/plan managed. Fees are as per NDIS price guide.
Sessions can currently be provided via Telehealth due to COVID-19. These can be undertaken via phone or via video consult.
