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.
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.
We help little people too.
Our studio is also home to ‘little here.’, our specialist paediatric neuropsychology service. We provide comprehensive diagnostic assessments and therapy for a wide range of neurodevelopmental presentations including ASD (autism spectrum disorder), ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder), learning disorders and intellectual disability.
We also work with young people of all ages through an evidence-based approach to wellbeing.
Our highly experienced clinicians understand the significance of a diagnosis and pride themselves on both accuracy and clinical reasoning throughout the process. Beyond diagnostics, our clinical and neuropsychologists help young people to reduce anxiety and build strong, healthy minds.

Standard psychology sessions are billed at $200 for a 50 minute appointment before any rebates are applied. Paediatric diagnostic fees vary based on the particular assessment being conducted.
Psychology sessions are often subsidised through the medicare rebate system which can give you access to up to ten sessions per year. If you’d like to claim a rebate through medicare you’ll first need to see your GP for a letter of referral and a mental health care plan. Don’t forget to bring these along to your first appointment too.
Some private health funds will also offer rebates for your sessions. The exact amount returned will depend on your fund and level of cover so it’s best to ask them directly for this information.
