You can find a professional and understanding clinical psychologist at our Kensington Park practice, nestled in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs, just a short drive from Norwood.

We ensure that we can offer you one of our best psychologist, best matched for your specific needs.

​Psychological Therapy is provided for individuals as well as for couples and groups. Based on over twenty years of successful private practice experience, treatment is always compassionate, client-focused, high quality and tailored to the needs of the client.  Whether you need help with anxiety, depression, panic, a difficult life event, a workplace or interpersonal issue, or to cope with a traumatic experience, our psychologists can offer expert and effective help. 

Anxiety has many faces: from incessant worry to over-busy minds, panic, stress, catastrophising and physical symptoms like insomnia, IBS, migraines and headaches. 

The good news is that effective techniques can be taught to bring rest to the weary, anxious mind. Our psychologists are highly skilled  and can help you gain control of your life again.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by a too long to do list? Are you finding it hard to relax and you've become more irritable and serious lately? Is insomnia and an inability to switch of your mind becoming routine? Stress can wreak havoc on health and relationships. Psychologists can help by teaching relaxation techniques and resilience.

Depression can be debilitating and yet so many put on a brave face as they struggle on. One in five Australians is affected at some stage of our lives. Depression can affect people of all ages, from all walks of life and backgrounds.

Effective therapy is available to overcome your sadness, low energy and loss of joy.

Life-threatening and upsetting events such as serious illness, divorce or an accident can sometimes lead to ongoing emotional issues such as insomnia, flashbacks, chronic anxiety, low confidence and PTSD.

When your symptoms don't fade naturally it is important to seek help.

Have you lost the connection you used to feel with each other? Are you fighting far too often, or not really talking anymore? It's sad and lonely and no one likes to live this way. Couple's counselling teaches effective communication and rekindling love and friendship.

Health Psychologists help with stress management and chronic health concerns such as chronic fatigue, weight loss, IBS, gut issues, eating disorders, including any concern where emotions and body influence each other. Effective therapy techniques are used to promote better mental and physical health.

Chronic pain whether from injury, fibromyalgia, arthritis or a chronic condition can impact significantly on quality of life. Psychologists teach techniques to manage pain better, provide support and utilise techniques such as mindfulness and meditation to help.

Clients with Autism and Asperger's often find friendships and interacting a challenge. It can be a great relief to find effective therapy for anxiety, depression and emotional struggles and to learn practical communication and relationship skills. A skilled, compassionate psychologist can help clients on the spectrum who struggle.
