We are a new practice located in the heart of Bundaberg. We have a professional and skilled team of mental health practitioners, from clinical psychologists to counsellors - all who share a passion for the wellbeing of people in our community. As a new practice we have shorter wait times and various services from psychological interventions, psychometrics (cognitive testing), NDIS, WorkCover, DVA and EAP. With our staff bringing their unique expertise in areas such as child and youth, drug and alcohol, older person's mental health, pain management, relationship and parenting, biofeedback, trauma and attachment, severe and persistent mental health issues, low-intensity cognitive behavioural therapy, autism and behaviour management - there will always be a service individually tailored for your needs.
To access our services please give us a call on (07) 4198 3143 or speak to your GP about a mental health care plan (this allows you to receive a rebate from Medicare).
Our team is made up of general and/or provisional psychologists, mental health specialists, counsellors and lead by a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years experience in the mental health field. You can be assured that your psychologist is not only appropriately qualified but also registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
We aim to deliver the most professional and individualised therapy for you and to ensure that your wellbeing is our highest priority.
Feel free to give us a call to speak about the different services we offer so we can get you on the path to wellness and recovery.
