OUR PRACTICE STAFF

 

At WPS clients and referrers can choose from male or female, clinical, educational and developmental or counselling psychologists, day, evening or weekend appointments. Specialist interests include those related to depression and anxiety, child and adolescent counselling and assessment, relationship, body image, trauma, adolescence, pain and injury, serious mental ill health, work stress, domestic violence, aged and other issues.

To assist your individual needs, WPS request that you contact our friendly administration team via phone, email or in person to discuss making a suitable appointment. Our experienced team will triage your referral to assist in finding the best Psychologist for you. 

 

NB: From time to time, some Psychologists may have waiting periods. If so, you will be offered the option to see another Psychologist at an earlier time, or be placed on a waiting list for your preferred Psychologist.
