The Clinic offers psychometric assessment for adults experiencing problems with cognitive function.
These assessments are useful for identifying areas of concern and assist in directing recommendations for strategies to improve academic, occupational and general day to day functioning.
The ACAP Psychology Clinic offers psychometric assessments for children who experience intellectual, developmental and emotional problems. These assessments may complement therapy and assist in directing recommendations for parenting strategies, education, and general behaviour.
We are unable to provide assessment for ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder).
Group therapy helps individuals develop communication and socialisation skills, express their issues and develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar issues.
We offer a range of groups that may suit you:

Participants will be provided with psychoeducation on social anxiety, to develop cognitive and behavioural skills.
Managing Your Social Anxiety Group for Adolescents
Participants will engage in an individual assessment prior to starting the group to ensure treatment is matched to needs
