Psychology

Our Psychologists support people who experience social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

What does a Psychologist do?

Psychology is the study of the human mind, its functions and influences. Psychologists use their understanding of human thinking and behaviour to help people address day-to-day challenges and improve their overall quality of life. They are committed to helping people find solutions to real life problems, such as improving mental health and wellbeing, learning, performance, relationships, and societal cohesiveness.

Our Psychology Services

Our experienced psychologists work as part of our multidisciplinary therapy teams, helping people living with disability address challenges and achieve their goals. Our psychologists help people understand the issues and challenges they’re facing, then provide strategies and interventions to help overcome them. They are committed to helping people find solutions to real-life problems, and improve their mental health and wellbeing.

Support is not only provided to the person experiencing challenges, but also to the important people in their life, including their family and caregivers.

Our psychology services are available to people of all ages who have Autism Spectrum Disorder, intellectual, neurological and physical disabilities, as well as developmental delays. Services can be provided at home, at school, in our offices, in community settings or online via teletherapy. 

Some of our Psychologists are also qualified to carry out Autism assessments. For more information about this service, call us on 1300 375 373
