ANU Psychology Clinic

The ANU Psychology Clinic is a centre for clinical practice & research in psychology. Our aim is to provide the highest standards in psychological assessment and treatment in a professional, responsive and caring environment.

Please note the ANU Psychology Clinic has closed for new clients for the duration of 2020. We are conducting intakes for our wait list for the Working with Emotions Group and the Emotion Detectives Child Group beginning in February 2021. 

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.

The ANU Clinic is also currently offering group programs for ANU students to attend:

  • Social Success Group: An 8 week group program designed to benefit individuals struggling with social anxiety and shyness.
  • Mood Management Group: An 8 week group program designed to benefit individuals struggling with anxiety and depression.
  • Sleep Group: A 5 week group program designed to benefit individuals who have sleep issues (i.e., insomnia).
  • Working with Emotions Group: An 8 week program designed to benefit individuals struggling with intense emotions such as sadness, anger, and guilt.

For more information about the groups, please contact the clinic.
