In response to the situation with COVID-19, we are offering telehealth services. Please call us to make an appointment.


At the UC Psychology Clinic we offer evidence-based psychological services to UC students and the community. Sessions are conducted by Provisional Psychologists who are in their fifth year of psychology training and completing their Masters/PhD in Clinical Psychology degree. The Provisional Psychologists are accredited to practice under the close supervision of Registered Clinical Psychologists, to ensure best practice standards and high-quality treatment plans are completed for each client.

The UC Psychology Clinic has expertise in management of childhood and adolescent, (aged 7- 16) and adult (17 +), presentations of low mood (depression), obsessive-compulsive behaviour, general anxiety, social anxiety, life changes such as parental separation or changing family dynamics, lack of motivation, sleep issues, adjustment concerns and various other presenting problems.

We operate Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday between 9:00am - 5:30pm.

If a referral is deemed suitable for treatment in the clinic an initial session will be booked and conducted with a duration of up to 80 minutes. After which a specific treatment plan will be developed with the supervisor to guide future treatment. Subsequent sessions will last 50 minutes and be scheduled weekly.

Assessments

The UC Psychology Clinic offers psychometric assessments and reports for a range of presenting concerns including IQ, school-based achievement and academic giftedness. At the current time, we do not offer specialized assessments of ADHD, specific learning disorders (e.g., dyslexia) or comprehensive neuropsychological testing.

Once referred to the clinic you will be contacted by a provisional psychologist who will assess your suitability for the clinic over the phone. If a referral is considered to meet our exclusion criteria, we will provide a range of more suitable referral options to support you.

Please note: ethical practice in psychology denotes that specific presentations are best managed by practitioners experienced with such disorders. Therefore, clients presenting with ADHD, significant behavioural issues, trauma, eating concerns, Autism Spectrum Disorder or risk behaviour/self-harm behaviour are not suitable for the UC Psychology clinic given the students level of training. Additionally, we do not provide services to UC students studying psychology due to potential conflicts of interest.
