Our team of clinical, neuro, counselling and registered psychologists

Making your emotional wellbeing our top priority

Get in Touch

Perth Clinical and Neuropyschologist Dr Katie Elliott has been growing our team of clinical, neuro, counselling and registered psychologists since 2012.

So, you can access a greater choice of services, experience and expertise at our clinic. You now have more opportunities for cognitive testing for conditions such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Acquired Brain Injury and neurodevelopmental disorders. Although the team has grown, you’ll find our clinic is small enough to provide the personalised care that our excellent reputation is built upon. From your first appointment to your last, our whole team makes your emotional wellbeing our priority.

Meet our Professional Team

All of the friendly, approachable psychologists at our clinic are registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA). They have the relevant qualifications, experience and accreditations required to offer a range of psychological services in Perth, WA. Additionally, all our psychologists are NDIS registered. Many have completed additional study to acquire further skills and qualifications such as Autism Assessor.
