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 15 years, the practice has earned a very well-known and highly respected reputation for providing specialised clinical and generalised 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.

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGISTS, CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY REGISTRARS AND GENERALIST PSYCHOLOGISTS
Associate Psychologists of the practice work in very close collaboration with Dr Flockhart and are all all fully registered Psychologists with the National Registration Board.
Most associates have also gained years of additional and extensive training in Clinical Psychology and are endorsed as Clinical Psychologists or are working towards their final endorsement in their chosen field.
This educational pathway and membership of the Australian Psychological Association ensures that the clinician is achieving one of the highest qualifications and specialisations in Psychology at a Clinical Master or Doctorate level (up to 7 years of full time University training plus an additional 1-2 years of clinically supervised and examined practice).
Generalist psychologists within our practice have gained their experience and full registration with the National Registration Board via an extremely thorough two year supervision program and state examination following their University training.
All practitioners of the practice strictly adhere to the Australian Psychological Society's Code of Ethics, and bring with them various specialisations and a wealth of experience targeted to our clients’ particular needs.
