NDIS

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.

We are also able to provide support to individuals who are self/plan managed. Fees are as per NDIS price guide.
