About Us

We are a group of psychologists and psychiatrists who have a person-centred gentle approach to helping people. We provide a safe environment and work at a pace that is most comfortable for you. We welcome people from diverse backgrounds. We are experienced in working with clients from the LGBTIQ community, and differing cultural and religious backgrounds.

We understand that you are unique and wish to fully understand the nature of your particular concerns. We work with you to create individualised treatment plans, so that you will not get a one-size fits-all approach. Seeing you achieve your goals and become the person you want to be is what drives our passion.

Our psychologists and psychiatrists are trained to assist people with a range of concerns such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, parenting, relationships, and trauma and abuse.

Vision

Integrative Psychology provides high quality therapy, supervision and training which incorporates the most current directions in psychological evidence based practice. Drawing on the work of up-to-date research in health and psychological science we apply comprehensive assessment to the design of psychological intervention. We are humanistic, scientific, and inclusive in our approach and do not privilege one modality or philosophy over another in our focus on best practice.

Mission

We will undertake a caring and complete assessment of each client. We are rigorous in our assessment and measurement of wellness and place great emphasis on obtaining objective and subjective measures of the process of change. We encourage this approach in our staff and the students who attend our training or supervision. We follow the bio-psycho-social model of healthcare and the trans-theoretical model of psychological care. We will lead the development of new wave approaches to complete care in the provision of psychological services to the public and to industry.

Counselling

We prioritise the use of effective psychological therapies in the context of a quality therapeutic relationship.

The relationship between you and the therapist involves being supported in an alliance focused on your healing and growth. The therapeutic relationship allows for the direct experience of a healthy relationship that promotes self-inquiry and exploration in a non-judgmental manner. The therapeutic relationship promotes self-understanding and relationship skills such as healthy boundary setting, assertion, self-esteem, and the capacity to give and receive care, while addressing the specific issues you wish to resolve.

At Integrative Psychology we provide counseling services for a wide range of issues including but not limited to:


Feel free to contact us if you have a particular request or issue you would like help with and we will do our best to match you with the right psychologist.

Family counselling (otherwise known as Family Therapy) involves a number of family members together attending counselling to address a range of issues, which can often be long standing. Family therapy can be directed at assisting a family to clarify and better manage relationships amongst family members as well as assisting families in dealing with major changes or distressing circumstances or events, such as grief and loss or mental or physical illness. Dealing with past family based trauma can also be a focus.

As with all therapies a counsellor is there to assist the individual, couple or family to gain their own clarity about a situation and develop better ways of managing that situation. The counsellor is not there to guide the individual or family members toward values or beliefs personally held by the counsellor. Counselling is non-judgemental and respectful at all times.

At Integrative Psychology our therapists are trained in a variety of approaches to assist with a range of relationships.

Group therapy can be a very effective way of overcoming feelings of isolation and hopelessness while facilitating change in a relatively short duration of time. Group therapy can differ according to length, size of group and criteria for inclusion. Groups may also differ in the degree of group participation required; generally therapeutic groups require greater group participation than psycho-education seminars and workshops. If you have any concerns about group participation please discuss these with the nominated contact person for the group you are considering, prior to registering for that group program.

Group programs available at Integrative Psychology:

  • Love more, fight less- group therapy for groups
  • Self-esteem, confidence and assertion
  • Life after an eating disorder
  • Interpersonal group psychotherapy
