Update for 2023

15 Years!

Growth Psychology Practice turned 15 this year! A big congratulations and thank you to all the clients, practitioners and referrers over the years who have supported the development of the practice. We are proud to have provided quality assessment and care to many clients, families and organisations and contributed to the heath and wel- being of our amazing community.


After a break in offering our Group Therapy programs due to COVID we were pleased to re-launch in October 2023 our first SHADES-Y group. SHADES-Y is best suited to adolescents experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression. The group commenced in October and was very successful with enthusiastic participation and great outcomes.

We will be running further SHADES & SHADES-Y groups in 2024 so keep an eye on the website or give our admin team a call to discuss further.

Thank you Referrers
