The PsychEquip Difference

Our clients regularly report that there is something different about the way we work. It’s difficult to capture with words, it’s more a feeling. We believe it has to do with our philosophy that has always been to provide a personal, individual and very human experience, not a large “one size fits most” approach. Whilst we know that using the most up to date techniques is important, research demonstrates that the best of techniques is unlikely to be as effective as it could be without a healthy working relationship with your psychologist.

We believe this relationship based approach helps us to ensure that every client receives the care, attention, and outcomes they need.   Coupled with our commitment to providing affordable health care, the end result is better outcomes for the lowest cost possible.

Why “Tools for Life”?

We see our work as an investment you make in yourself that facilitates acceptance, connection, growth and ultimately the pursuit of living your best life – however that may look.

We work alongside you to put together a tool kit that will serve you well along the way, well beyond the therapeutic experience itself.
