How we can help

No matter where you’re at on your therapy journey, we offer a range of services, programs and evidenced-based therapies to realise your goals.

Please note, available services and programs vary between clinics, so please check with your local clinic about their therapy services.


As part of your therapy journey your therapist we may recommend some specific therapy programs to assist in achieving your goals including:

PEERS is the leading evidence-based social skills intervention program for teenagers and young adults with social challenges such as high functioning autism spectrum disorder, as well as those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression and other socio-emotional problems.

Facilitated by our therapists, group programs are a fun way to meet others and create connections while learning and developing skills.

Perinatal (before birth) and postnatal (after birth) counselling is a form of therapy that provides emotional and psychological support to expectant and new parents.
