Our warm and highly skilled reception team will spend time with you over the phone to match you with the most appropriate psychologist for your needs, to answer any questions you have about how it all works, and to support you in taking these important steps towards self-care and change.

193 Macquarie Street, Sydney 2000
Fax: (02) 9475 1084

We are open from 7 AM to 8 PM, Monday to Friday, and 9 am to 2 pm on Saturday, so you can attend before or after work or on the weekend – because we know life can be busy. 

We offer appointments face to face, or online via telehealth to match your needs.

You don’t need a referral to make an initial appointment, but we can talk you through the process of referrals and rebates so that you have all the relevant information to make informed choices about your care. 

How is seeing a psychologist different from talking with a friend?

We hope you feel supported, cared about and understood like you might with a close friend. However, seeing a psychologist has several different qualities to talking with a friend.

1 First, a psychologist has specialised training and  experience to create a clear picture of your 
presenting concerns that takes into account your current symptoms, potential root causes, current cycles of feelings, thoughts, behaviours and consequences, relevant environmental factors, and relational factors. This clear picture can then be used to trace out pathways for intervention and change, meaning that a psychologist can act like a curator to distil all the many aspects of your current challenges into clear concepts that can then be addressed in new ways. Psychologists use evidence-based strategies and tools to do this, teaching those skills to you along the way so that you are empowered to make these changes yourself in the future when needed.
2 Second, a psychologist is not a friend who you already 
 have an established history with, nor who you have to 
worry about spending time with in social settings in the future. They are bound by confidentiality and therefore you don’t have to worry about them sharing your private experiences with other people you know. In addition, they are trained to hear about people’s distress, trauma, pain, and grief, so you can be as honest as you like with them without having to take time to care for their wellbeing, or being concerned about sharing ‘too much’ for them to bear. This can make the experience of seeing a psychologist an opportunity for greater honesty and exploration of your feelings and desires, because there are less competing interests or motivations than when you sit down to talk with a friend.
