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 qualified psychologists work as part of 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.

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 clinics, in community settings or online via teletherapy.
