Kensington Psychology and Well-Being is a practice with a focus on you as a whole person - your background, current challenges, and what brings you to wellness. We are a warm, professional private practice dedicated to offering you the best in care delivered via evidence based treatment, both dietetic and psychological.
Psychological Therapy is provided for individuals of all ages, as well as for couples. Based on over twenty years of successful private practice experience, treatment is always compassionate, client-focused, high quality and tailored to the needs of the client.
Whether you need help with anxiety, depression, panic, a difficult life event, a workplace or interpersonal issue, or to cope with a traumatic experience, our psychologists can offer expert and effective help. Our aim is to make therapy sessions practical in the real world so that you can see the gains in your life and relationships.
Many different treatment modalities are utilised, with a preference for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness.
Our Psychology Services Include
Located in the heart of Kensington Park, we are easily accessible to residents of Kensington Park and surrounding areas such as Marryatville, Leabrook, Beulah Park, Norwood, Dulwich, Toorak Gardens, Heathpool, Tusmore, Hazelwood Park and Wattle Park. We are close to public transport and there is street parking available for those who prefer to drive.
If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP you are able to access ten sessions under Medicare per calendar year. Please note that we are a private billing practice where bulk billing is not routine and a gap usually applies.
Medicare rebates can be processed on the spot through our HICAPS machine if you attend with a debit card that has a cheque or savings account linked to it. We are also able to claim from most private health funds on the spot.
If you would like further details regarding our fees or have any other queries please contact our friendly reception staff.

OUR COVID-19 VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS
As our South Australian borders are opening, many of you may have wondered about the impact on our State. Whilst of course we welcome the return of family and friends to South Australia, we are conscious of keeping those closest to us safe and healthy.
To keep us all as safe as possible, Kensington Psychology and Well-Being has decided to take some extra measures to protect those who are vulnerable such as clients and staff with elderly parents, children, and other immune compromised family or friends.
Kensington Psychology now requires that everyone visiting our practice (and eligible for COVID vaccination) must be vaccinated.
If you are not vaccinated, or are unwilling to provide proof of your vaccination status, we are more than happy to continue therapy via Telehealth, for which there is also a Medicare rebate as you may be aware. Your Telehealth session may be via video link or phone, whatever your preference is. We will do our best to accommodate everybody's needs as sensitively and compassionately as we can
