Our Team


All consultations need to be arranged by website referral, email or phone as we
do not have an onsite reception and many of our staff work from multiple locations.

ACC Registered Therapsists

Our mental health team comprises Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists,
Counsellors and Social Workers. Most of them are ACC registered.
