Psychology at Yarra Medical

Psychology and Counselling

Yarra Medical currently offers access to psychology and counselling services. Our counselling services cater to adolescents and adults. Clients can self-refer to see the Clinical Psychologist or ask for a referral through one of our friendly doctors. Our team of GPs are non-judgmental and always ready to listen and help in any way that we can.

Our Counsellors and Psychologists have extensive experience in mental health. We’ve created a warm, respectful and open minded environment where clients can come, be themselves and explore their difficulties within a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship.
