Registered, Counselling & Clinical Psychologists in Perth
Let Us Help You Reclaim Your Life
No matter what mental health issues you are facing, our Perth team of clinical psychologists can help you address and overcome those issues with effective clinical psychological treatments. We can help you on the road to becoming more confident, work towards socialising more easily and feeling happier to speak out in meetings. Our clinical psychologists can work with you to address flashbacks and hyper-vigilance following a car accident or work trauma and work to resolve these issues. With our help, even long-standing problems from childhood can be identified and addressed, and you can learn coping mechanisms to help you reclaim your life.

What is Clinical Psychology?
What many people don’t know is that clinical psychological treatments are rooted in years of theoretical research and testing to provide effective strategies to treat a wide spectrum of mental health issues. Clinical psychologists undertake a minimum of 8 years training and are qualified to provide guidance, care and counselling to those suffering from mental health issues. They have all achieved a minimum of a Post Graduate Masters Degree, or a PhD – enabling them to diagnose and provide clinical treatment for a wide spectrum of mental health disorders – from behavioural and interpersonal problems to anxiety and depression and more severe disorders such as psychosis and personality disorders. They often work closely with psychiatrists when treating complex issues.
For you, clinical psychology also means higher rebates as Medicare offers a generous rebate for clinical psychology services. Please see your GP to discuss your eligibility to obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan, in order to receive the rebate.
The skilled team at Psychological Health Care also comprises counselling psychologists and registered psychologists. You can read more about their areas of special interest on the meet the team page.
What is a Counselling Psychologist?
Counselling psychologists also have a minimum 8 years training and provide assessment, diagnosis and psychotherapy for individuals, couples, families, and groups, across a wide range of psychological issues and mental health disorders. They use a range of evidence-based therapies and evidence-based therapy relationships (rather than a directly clinical approach) to help people resolve mental health disorders or psychological problems and move toward greater psychological health.
Counselling psychologists have a distinct philosophical stance, recognising the strengths and resources of people at all levels of psychological functioning. They collaborate with people in a therapeutic relationship to bring about meaningful change. For more information about our counselling psychologists visit the meet the team page.
What is a Registered Psychologist?
Registered Psychologists have completed a minimum of 6 years training, building on that each year with ongoing education. Using evidence-based approaches they diagnose and treat a wide range of areas of concern. For more information about our registered psychologists visit the meet the team page.
