In this world, it’s not easy to find genuinely supportive, healing spaces where you can just be yourself. This is what we offer. North Brisbane Psychologists offers you a choice of five caring psychologists at two different locations. Our first location is in Aspley, not far from Chermside. Our second location is in Stafford Heights.
We – Ingrid, Lynne, Melissa, Jenny, and Rachel – have spent many years helping people better manage their issues. We help you remove the blocks that stop you from enjoying a life of good health and happiness. We know it can be hard to reach out for help. At North Brisbane Psychologists, we make you feel relaxed and safe. We do not judge.
At North Brisbane Psychologists, we are skilled in many therapies (see below). Our psychologists have a great deal of experience addressing many issues, ranging from life-changing and distressing events to everyday challenges and problems.

Wise people seek help when they are struggling.
Relationship and Marriage Counselling
You would invest in fixing the roof of your house if needed.
We believe it is wise to invest in the health of the relationships under that roof.
We also specialise in relationship therapy and marriage counselling. Come to us if you:
- are dealing with conflict with your partner
- have problems with children or relatives
- or someone is having an affair
- or your partner feel misunderstood
- are angry or have an angry partner
- are worried you might break up
- are needing support through a break-up.
All of our psychologists have training in helping couples. Two of our psychologists, Rachel and Jenny, have trained in Sue Johnson‘s Emotion-Focussed Couple Therapy (EFCT) and also in the Gottman Method. Lynne, Jenny and Rachel all hold Level 2 qualifications in relationship therapy from the renowned Gottman Institute.
Arguing never transforms conflict. Couples counselling can.
At North Brisbane Psychologists we build genuine relationships with our clients
There comes a time when you need to do more than just think about making changes. If you’ve tried to fix your problems but can’t make any real or lasting progress, getting help is the smart thing to do.
Good psychologists help their clients feel comfortable and understood. At North Brisbane Psychologists, we build genuine, cooperative relationships with our clients. We promise you will feel accepted, safe and supported.
Good psychologists have a number of valuable techniques, tools and therapies they can use to help people who are suffering emotional problems. Our team at North Brisbane Psychologists uses a number of evidence-based therapies including:
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Schema-Focussed Cognitive Therapy
- Relaxation and Mindfulness Techniques
- Self-Compassion Therapy
- Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Skills training
We believe therapy is an ART as much as it is a science. We don’t do “formula” therapy. We focus fully on you to tailor a treatment plan to suit your unique personal style, problems and needs.
By investing your time and commitment to undertake therapy, you prioritise your own happiness. And you will be pleased you chose Ingrid, Melissa, Jenny, Lynne, or Rachel of North Brisbane Psychologists to help guide you on your journey of change and development.
