Clinical services

The ANU Psychology Clinic is a training, treatment and research centre offering specialised psychological services to the community. The clinic provides assessment, counselling and therapy for adults and children / families who may be experiencing emotional or behavioural problems including anxiety, fears and phobias, depression, stress, and coping with health conditions (i.e., sleep, pain). Therapy is provided individually or within groups, is time limited and centred around evidence based best practices.

As we are a training facility we are not equipped to assist individuals with complex and chronic mental health difficulties.
