Bring Your Life back into Balance and Harmony
We know that life throws up many challenges in an increasingly complex world. Our fully trained psychologists at Astute Psychology can give you immense help with daily dilemmas and problems that may otherwise seem overwhelming.
At our easily accessible clinic in Unley, we are devoted to providing a quality service that respects your dignity and choices, whether our clients are children, adolescents, individuals, couples or families. At Astute Psychology, we know that when someone in your family is going through a difficult time, everyone can be affected.
Female & Male Psychologists
We have an equal number of female and male psychologists, each with their own specialty area – so you’ll be able to schedule an appointment with someone you are likely to feel comfortable with.
Easily Accessible location near Adelaide
Astute Psychology is conveniently located just south of the city center, a short distance from Unley Rd. There are ample parking spaces, either by the clinic or in the nearby shopping center car park.
Our clinic is a single-story building and is wheelchair accessible for most types of wheelchairs. Astute Psychology is a family-friendly clinic, and we aim to create a comfortable atmosphere for our clients.
Qualified and Registered Psychologists
Appropriate qualifications are a must when choosing a psychologist, and all of our practitioners are registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Registration Authority. As caring professionals, we also subscribe to the ethical guidelines of the Psychology Board of Australia.
Our staff here at Astute Psychology have extensive experience in family therapy, as well as trauma therapy – and we can help with a range of issues including problem gambling, body image concerns, depression, substance abuse disorders, and a wide range of anxiety disorders.
Six psychologists on staff
When choosing a psychology clinic, make sure there are enough practitioners on the staff to see you at a time that suits you. Ask our friendly reception staff about which of our psychologists – clinical, forensic, counseling, or health psychologists – might suit your needs best. With six experienced psychologists on our staff, we’re sure you’ll find one that can help you.
Other modalities we offer include mindfulness, and acceptance and commitment therapy as well as cognitive behavior therapy.
You don’t need a Doctors referral
A referral is not necessary to see a psychologist. To access Medicare rebate, we suggest you book an extended appointment with your GP who will assess your symptoms and write a mental health care plan – if you are eligible. This enables a Medicare rebate for up to ten counseling appointments in a calendar year.
If you have private health insurance with the appropriate level of extra coverage you may also be eligible for a rebate.
If you choose not to have an assessment with your GP or haven’t had time to see them, and you don’t have a private health fund – we can still set an appointment for you.
In some circumstances, we offer bulk billing. If this is something that’s important to you, please contact us directly regarding eligibility for this.
Our fees are below the recommended physiologists fees of our professional body, the APS (Australian Psychological Society). Usually, our fees for a General Psychologist are lower than those for a Clinical Psychologist – please call us to inquire.
At ASTUTE Education and Psychology you’ll gain the confidence to manage the ups and downs of life – so that you can live life as it is meant to be lived, in balance and harmony.
