Psychology & Counselling

QUT Health Clinics - Psychology & Counselling provides affordable, professional Psychology, Family Therapy and Counselling services for the general public, including children, and staff and students of QUT.

Therapists are QUT postgraduate students in either Clinical Psychology, Educational and Developmental psychology or Counselling. The clinical and educational psychology interns are either registered or have probationary registration as psychologists and are supervised closely by experienced psychologists that are eligible for membership of the Australian Psychological Society. The counselling therapists come from a wide range of professional backgrounds and work in teams closely supervised by highly experienced counsellors.

Sessions are provided in both an individual basis and through group therapy including couples and families. Services are offered in a specially designed suite of rooms.

Treatment is available for a range of issues:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety, panic attacks and phobias
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Stress, trauma and psychological injury
  • Relationship issues
  • Employment difficulties
  • Anger management
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Eating problems and addictive behaviours
  • Parenting
  • Adjustment to medical conditions
  • Resilience building groups for adolescents.

The clinical psychology services also provide specialised services in conjunction with dietetics to assist adults who are overweight or obese with weight loss or healthy eating and activity, and in conjunction with social work and a general medical practitioner to assist adults with binge eating disorder or bulimia nervosa.

In addition, problems that may be specific to children and adolescents include:

  • Behavioural problems

QUT Psychology and Counselling Clinic is a teaching and research clinic. Clinical psychology consultations are routinely video recorded for supervision purposes. You may be invited to participate in a research project or to allow a therapy session to be viewed by other students. None of this is done without your consent and you are under no obligation to participate in research or to permit therapy sessions to be used for teaching purposes (other than supervision).
