We offer specialised mental health interventions for young people and their parents experiencing a range of mental health difficulties or who need help to cope with challenging circumstances.
Our clinicians work with young people and their families collaboratively to understand the nature of these difficulties and in planning evidence-based treatment.
Telehealth services are available for:
Parents who have a child or adolescent with mental health problems (including anxiety, depression, attention problems, behaviour problems, ASD) and want to learn management strategies to help their child. These sessions often include support for the parent's own mental health.
Young people aged 12 - 25 who are experiencing depression, anxiety, or stress, behavioural problems, or refusing to attend school. These sessions can also focus on coping with challenges at work or study, managing experiences of bullying, being more assertive, and building confidence and self-esteem.
Formal cognitive assessments and individual therapy for primary school children rely on face-to-face appointments and are currently on hold.
Our services are based on self-referral and families can contact the clinics directly. Your call will be returned by one of our clinicians to discuss your needs. We also accept referrals from members of your care team including doctors, allied health professionals and community agencies. We do not require a Medicare Mental Health Care Plans and payments cannot be processed under this referral pathway. We are unable to accept referrals from Worksafe or TAC at this time.

Individual session fee $60 ($30 concession); assessment reports $600 ($300 concession).
