The Psychology clinic provides psychological assessment, therapy and psychometric assessments at low cost. Our services are for adults, children, adolescents and their families, the general community as well as University staff and students.
As a teaching, training and research clinic at the University of Sydney, our clinic is staffed by postgraduate trainees who work under the supervision of highly experienced clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists. Our treatments and psychometric assessments reflect the latest developments in clinical practice and the highest standards of care.
We can assist with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, life events, grief and loss, health and illness, relationships, parenting and family, behavior, study and work, resilience, and learning difficulties for adults and children.
When attending our clinic, you may be invited to participate in research studies to help us contribute new and improved developments to the latest research in psychological assessment and treatment. Participating in these programs is voluntary and will not affect access to our services.
Therapy for children, adolescents and families
People experiencing severe and chronic difficulties usually require more specialised services than those provided by the Psychology Clinic. We encourage you to see your local doctor or other suitable health professional for more appropriate referral options to avoid unnecessary delays in obtaining appropriate assistance for your needs. We are unable to provide services for the following issues:
Help us develop better treatments for children with anxiety.
Researchers at The University of Sydney are inviting children aged 7-12 years with anxiety (along with their parents) to participate in a research study aimed at better understanding how anxiety develops within families.
Anyone may refer themselves, their child, or a client or patient to the Clinic.
You do not need a referral to make an appointment. The Clinic Receptionist will take your contact details and an Intake Officer will call you back to obtain details of the difficulties involved and ensure that our Clinic is the most suitable service. Where people are not suited to our service, every effort will be made to provide details of more appropriate services.
If we can offer you suitable services, you/your child or adolescent will be placed on a waitlist and we will endeavor to offer an appointment as soon as we can. An estimate of the waiting time can be obtained from the Intake Officer.
Public transport is highly recommended and easily available, by bus along Parramatta Rd, or by train to Newtown, Redfern and Central stations (15-30 minute walk).
If driving, limited one- to two-hour on-street parking is available in the surrounding streets. Allow additional time for parking. For psychometric assessments only, contact the Clinic Receptionist for alternative parking arrangements.
