The official opening of the Ourimbah Psychology Clinic was celebrated on Wednesday, with the Vice-Chancellor Professor Caroline McMillen presiding. The Clinic sees the School of Psychology expanding the range of placement experiences on offer to postgraduate students in Clinical Psychology, as well as providing an affordable and accessible service to residents of the Central Coast.
The Ourimbah Psychology Clinic builds upon the existing Callaghan Psychology Clinic, offering a range of services including diagnostic and cognitive assessments, group programs, family therapy, and individual therapy for a wide range of concerns. The Clinic also supports clinical research initiatives, such as Dr Linda Campbell’s work with neurodevelopmental disorders and Dr Michelle Kelly’s research into the provision of an intervention for carer’s of older people living with dementia. The Ourimbah Psychology Clinic will initially open on Mondays and Tuesdays.
