180Wellbeing provides psychology services such as assessments, counselling and behaviour support for people living in the community or who are already linked with another service or school. The most common assessments requested from our psychology practice by customers are for mental health and IQ that can be used to improve understanding and treatment outcomes.
Our psychologists also provide counselling to improve mental health or manage stressful events. Counselling is proven to be a very effective way to reduce anxiety and help people to work through stressful life events and improve their relationships.
Meeting with a psychologist is easy and appointments can be made over the phone or by completing our online referral form. Once the referral has been received one of the 180Wellbeing team will contact you to learn more about your needs and book an appointment.
