At here. we believe looking after your brain is just as important as looking after your body.
We all understand the importance of looking after our body, of exercising and eating well. But very few of us do things to look after our brain, to keep it strong and healthy too. That’s where we come in.
give your brain a tune-up.
In this fast paced, technology driven world, learning to slow down is imperative to our mental health and wellbeing.
When we become stressed, our brain tends to switch into its default mode of fixating on the past or worrying about the future, and it becomes difficult to find our way back to the present. Our skilled clinicians are experts in wellbeing of the brain. They help you let go and learn to be more present. When we slow down and become mindful, we unlock the key to living a more rich and meaningful life.
You can choose from three different appointment types:
A friendly online telehealth session.
We understand that sometimes it’s hard to be here, so this is a 50 minute telehealth session where you can chat to one of our delightful psychologists over skype.
Medicare rebates may be available if you have a valid mental health care plan.
A sit-down in the studio.
A 50 minute appointment with one of our psychologist in the studio. With a warming slow tea in your hands, you can choose on the day if you’d prefer to have this session around the communal table or in the privacy of our beautiful consult room.
