Our Psychologists

Our clinics provide a wide range of counselling, psychology and psychotherapy services with our staff specialising in a broad range of areas. Counselling is used in order to manage a variety of life problems, and we can assist children, adolescents, adults and families in all stages of their life.

Our clinical team is led by Professor Jo Grimwade and is staffed by psychologists who are highly skilled and trained to effectively diagnose, respond and assist with a wide range of presenting problems such as depression, relationship difficulties, anxiety, grief and loss: issues such as anger, family or school problems, as well as treatment for psychological disorders, such as mood, anxiety and personality disorders.

In addition to the clinical and general psychologists working at our clinics, low-cost psychological assessment and treatment is also available through our Cairnmillar students. The students providing these services are registered provisional psychologists completing supervised field placement as part of the educational program at the Cairnmillar Institute. The students are fully supervised by an experienced clinical psychologist throughout their placement. Students are available for counselling sessions without the need for a referral and without a limit on the number of sessions. The fee for counselling and therapy with a student is only $20 per session and for specific cognitive testing and report writing a flat fee of $450 is charged.
