We founded Prahran Psychology in 2009 after gaining a wealth of experience in both the public and private sectors. We learned our craft working with some of the most challenging forensic populations in Victoria and decided to apply our skills to service the needs of the local community.
As a boutique practice, we offer a very personalised service. We see the practice as an opportunity to follow our passion for facilitating change in people. We love to meet new clients, but are equally happy when we get to bid them farewell, knowing they are in a stronger, better place.
We strongly believe that the diversity of the work we do empowers us to be more responsive to the needs of our whole community.
Our practice has grown over the years to include a second location in South Yarra and we are currently in the process of setting up in other new and exciting locations. Wherever you find us, we will be bringing the same client centred ethos to the work we have always done.
In line with our expansion, we have rebranded as LOCAL PSYCHOLOGY to fit with our next goal of making psychology as accessible as possible. As such, we hope that the right help will be just around the corner.
One of the values underpinning our work is openness to experience. Subsequently, as well as our day to day clinical and counselling work, we service the needs of sporting bodies such as the AFL Players Association and Swimming Australia. We provide consultation to Victoria Police and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as Independent Experts on family violence matters.
We work with some of Melbourne’s most marginalised individuals providing counselling to clients at the Salvation Army – Access Health Program in St Kilda and the Galiamble Men’s Recovery and Winja Ulupna Women’s Recovery Centres.
We are very proud to have recently teamed up with Salvation Army – Youth and Family Services – Crisis Services to help establish the psychological intake and treatment component of their program.
