At Macquarie Street Psychology Centre we are committed to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics and confidentiality. We provide the highest standards of care for people with psychological problems. We achieve this by being on the cutting edge of the latest research and innovations in our field.

It takes courage to seek professional help for psychological difficulties and begin the process of examining the way in which we live. Our philosophy is that recovery is best achieved by supporting the person through a readily understood, practical, step by step process that brings rapid relief from suffering. We also believe it is essential to help the person understand how their problems developed and, how they can be prevented. We aim for recovery and relapse prevention.
