Family therapy

How to get started

Find the right Psychologist

Most of our psychologists work in the Melbourne CBD Clinic, and the rest in different locations across Melbourne. You can find out all about our psychologists – when, where and what issues they work with – on our online booking page or you can call our reception on 1300 161 639.

Personal Matching

We recommend that your first step is an online Personal Matching appointment. Research shows that the key to successful outcomes is the relationship between client and psychologist. At Psychology Melbourne, we don't leave that to chance. We offer a personal matching session with one of our trained Matching Psychologists who will expertly choose the right psychologist for you and your issues.

Fees & rebates

GP Referral

All our psychologists are registered with Medicare, allowing clients with a referral and a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) from their GP to receive a substantial rebate.

Note that you do not require a referral from a GP unless you intend to claim a Medicare rebate.

"To be what we are and to become what we are capable of becoming is the only end of life."

—Henry David Thoreau (via Robert Louis Stevenson)

We can view families as a type of system, because there are different “elements” of a family system (i.e., family members) with distinct behavioural patterns, roles and boundaries.

Family systems therapy proposes that an individual’s experiences within the family while growing up influence the way he or she functions in other relationships throughout life. By uncovering the dynamics within the family of origin, clients can resolve problem and develop different ways of relating.

Family systems therapy can be useful in helping to resolve relationship disputes, childhood and parenting issues, separation or divorce situations, and communication difficulties in families.
