How we work

We provide a confidential and non-judgmental space in which you can discuss your concerns, and we can discuss the best way to help you.

We provide psychoanalytic treatment, which can assist in several ways. This approach can involve working through the problems that you are experiencing, as well as assisting you to overcome what gets in the way of you pursuing what you want in your life. It can also be a way of finding new ways of relating to yourself and others, which can open up new possibilities in your life.

In addition to therapeutic work, we also provide supervision to health professionals undertaking clinical work. This includes supervision for the clinical registrar program in psychology.


Clinical psychologists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. This ensures they meet specified standards of competence, ethical practice and strict guidelines for professional conduct.

We are registered members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and are fellows of the APS College of Clinical Psychologists. Membership of the APS Clinical College is restricted to psychologists who have completed specialised post-graduate training in clinical psychology and received professional supervision from an established clinical psychologist.
