Clinical psychologists focus on assessing, diagnosing, and treating mental health conditions. They undergo further post-graduate training and supervised practice in the area of clinical psychology. Our clinical psychologists tend to work with people experiencing more complex issues. We also provide guidance and supervision to our generalist team members to ensure that you receive high-quality service, no matter who you see. Both of our clinic directors are clinical psychologists, and Denver is in the process of completing his registrar (supervised experience) in 2023/2024.
Health psychologists can assist you in making health behaviour changes to improve health, reduce risk, and help you adjust to or manage significant health conditions and their mental health impacts. They undergo further post-graduate training and supervised practice in the area of health psychology. Our clinic has one health psychologist (Kelly) and a health psychology registrar (Samantha – who is awaiting endorsement), with Mia also having an interest and experience in this area.
Adult Diagnostic and Cognitive Assessments
Our team has considerable experience in the diagnosis and assessment of ASD, ADHD and learning disorders in adults. A number of our clinical and general psychologists are also able to provide formal diagnostic assessments for NDIS and Centrelink. More information on our psychological assessment processes can be found on the assessment page. Our clinical psychologists provide oversight on all assessment reports ensuring that the reports are highly professional and meet the needs of the client.
