Our clinicians will work with you to collaboratively identify treatment goals that are important to you, have measurable outcomes and enable you be active in doing those things that matter most to you.
We recognise that relief of symptoms is only part of a bigger picture when it comes to your health. We aim to provide treatments that have functional outcomes - such as getting you active again in your work and hobbies - not just reduction of pain or distress. We believe it is important to provide you with practical resources and strategies to be able maintain the long-term health of your mind and body.
In working towards symptom relief it is useful to be aware that many treatments can seem to initially increase symptoms. This is because we often automatically adopt strategies for managing symptoms that provide short-term relief but not long-term management. Treatment may require ceasing use of these strategies of short-term relief while implementing a more effective management. This is explained in relation to psychological wellbeing in our article, "It Gets Worse Before it Gets Better" - but the same patterns also often apply for our physical health.
We are dedicated to providing affordable, specialised treatments to all ages - children, adolescents and adults.
Our Clinical Psychologists and Psychologists offer assessments and treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, including but not limited to, obsessive compulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression and anxiety.

Treatment plans are customised to your individual needs, taking into account the interaction of factors such as physical symptoms, sleep, beliefs and emotions.
Our Clinical Nutritionist seeks to identify the physiological, biochemical and environmental contributors to your health symptoms and provides specific nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and supplement prescriptions.
