NDIS Psychologists work to support and guide people and their families, striving for positive change
They work with participants and their families to achieve clear strategies and goal-directed interventions based on best practises.
As people journey through their lives, there are usually a few bumps along the way. Most of these we can take in our stride, however, there are times where we may need some support to be able to live the best lives that we can.
When this happens, it is always useful to reach out and talk to someone so we can get back on track and improve our quality of life.
NDIS psychology can be broad. Our psychologists have experience helping individuals (adults and children), families, and their supports to:
- Understand their diagnoses and disabilities.
- Manage feelings of stress, anger, anxiety and/or depression.
- Build emotional insight and regulations strategies.
- Construct in behavioural management strategies for children.
- Cope with grief, loss, crisis situations and/or trauma.
- Improve relationships and social skills.
- Set goals, improve confidence and motivation.
- Recover from drug and/or alcohol issues.
- Develop problem-solving skills to manage difficult situations.
- Support participants in reaching their personal and NDIS goals.
A psychosocial disability is a disability that may arise from a mental health issue.
While not everyone who has a mental health condition will have a psychosocial disability, some people may have a disability resulting from their mental health condition. This can have a severe impact on their ability to maintain relationships and undertake day-to-day activities.

What is a provisional psychologist?
Before becoming provisionally registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, also known as AHPRA, you must usually study at least 4 to 5 years of psychology.
Provisionally authorised psychologists are supervised by a fully certified psychologist throughout their supervised practice period. The registration is “provisional,” which means it will be reported to and mentored by an experienced psychologist.
The application of knowledge, method, principles, techniques, and ethical standards is strictly governed by AHPRA. Once the provisional psychologist has completed 6 years of study/supervision, they may apply for full registration.
What does a provisional psychologist do?
Provisional psychologists provide the same psychological services as other psychologists, just under the supervision of a fully-registered psychologist.
Can a provisional psychologist make diagnoses?
Provisional psychologists can make diagnoses, however, they are accountable to their supervisor in regard to their diagnoses.
