What is a psychologist?
A psychologist is a trained professional who specialises in the mind and human behaviour and assessing the relationship between the two.
Psychologists can help to treat people with a range of conditions including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, personality disorders and psychotic disorders. Sometimes, these disorders can affect the individual so severely that they struggle to cope with daily life. Talking to an unbiased, non-judgemental person can help to ease the symptoms of these disorders and provide new perspectives and strategies on how to better deal with life’s dilemmas as they arise.
Psychologists collaborate closely with clients, their families and carers to provide a comprehensive assessment of their mental health requirements and identify the best course of action.

Why would you need psychology services as part of your NDIS plan?
You will need psychology services as part of your NDIS plan if you have a diagnosed mental health condition or intellectual disability that is negatively impacting areas of your life or is inhibiting your ability to function daily.
Examples of this may include:
- If you or your family member has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and needs help to reduce distractions and increase attention span
- If you or your family member has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and needs help with social skills, emotional regulation and managing mood disorders
- If you or your family member has a generalised anxiety disorder and is struggling to function socially and hold down a job
- If you or your family member has a neurodegenerative disease and is struggling to cope with subsequent life changes and after diagnosis
We help you to meet your NDIS goals by working closely with you and your carers to improve the quality of your life. We achieve this by setting realistic goals and focussing on incremental achievements, continuously working to progress you to the next level.
