Do I need to bring anything?
We value your feedback on our practice and we will ask you to complete some assessments and outcome measures at the beginning and completion of your therapy this helps us to continue to develop our skills as psychologists in enhancing positive changes in people’s lives.

Will my visit here be confidential?
Absolutely; the confidentiality of our service is extremely important to all practitioners and as registered psychologists we will explain how we take care of our records and what confidentiality means in your treatment. This information is usually discussed in our first session but if you have particular concerns we are able to discuss this on the phone before this appointment is made.

When can I make appointments?

The practice is open on weekdays with early morning and late evening appointments. Our receptionist will provide you with information on the days and times that each of our Psychologists work and their fees and rebates.

Psychologists at Barrenjoey are able to offer Skype consultations on some days. This enables you to schedule your session with your Psychologist wherever you are which we find is particularly convenient for people with busy lives.
