Clinical Psychologists have specialised training in the assessment and treatment of psychological and psychiatric conditions. As Clinical Psychologists, we have extended our training beyond a four year Bachelor Degree and completed an additional post-graduate degree in Clinical Psychology at a Master or Doctorate level. In addition to many years of practical experience, this educational pathway has provided us with the highest level of clinical training available for Psychologists in Australia.

Over the last twelve years, the practice has earned a very well-known and highly respected reputation for providing specialised clinical psychology services to the Cairns and surrounding community. As a testament to our reputation, we regularly receive referrals from as far North as Mossman and Cook Town, as far West as the Tablelands and as far South as Innisfail.
