CLINIC HISTORY Bayside Psychology, Hypnotherapy and Counselling clinic was established in 1980 to meet the growing need for psychological services in Victoria.
Bayside Psychology offers a comprehensive range of clinical, counselling, educational and forensic services for adults, couples, children and families.
We strive to maintain an uncompromisingly high standard of professional practice in a friendly and welcoming environment.
The practice is staffed by specialist psychologists who have had many years experience working with clients in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools and clinics and in private practice.
Close working relationships are maintained with local medical practitioners and medical specialists, particularly psychiatrists and paediatricians and with many complementary health practitioners.
Psychologists at this clinic maintain ongoing professional development and hold all appropriate qualifications, registrations and professional memberships including memberships of the Australian Psychological Society and the Australian Society of Hypnosis.
The practice uses a clinical framework. All clients can expect their problems will be diagnosed in the first session and the appropriate research-based best practice treatment used.
Treatment techniques chosen to suit your presenting problem may include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), counselling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, psycho-education, solution focused therapy, family therapy and many more.
Most costs are met through Medicare if you have an appropriate referral and treatment plan.
Bayside Psychology is not a bulk billing clinic. You should discuss your financial difficulties with your psychologist if the fee gap is a problem for you.
OUR PHILOSOPHY We hold a belief that all people can change, that bad things can happen to good people and that life is not always fair. We believe in the community of mankind, that we can all share our planet and respect each other’s beliefs and wisdom and help each other live fulfilling lives. We believe that it is the connections we make with each other which form the basis of change.
