In a fast-paced world it’s not easy to find genuinely supportive spaces where you can truly be yourself and heal. At North Brisbane Psychologists, this is what we offer.
We offer you the choice of five caring psychologists at two locations. Our first location is Aspley, not far from Chermside. Our second location is Stafford Heights. We boast a respectful and collaborative culture. 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 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. We will not give you a diagnosis (unless you request one). Instead, we will give you hope.
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. We can help if you:

Relationship and Marriage Counselling
You would fix the roof of your house if you needed to. Likewise, it is essential to invest in the relationships under that roof. Four of our five psychologists specialise in relationship therapy and couples 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.
Two of our psychologists, Jenny and Rachel, have trained in Sue Johnson‘s Emotion-Focussed Couple Therapy (EFCT). Lynne, Jenny and Rachel have trained in the Gottman Method, each holding Level 2 qualifications in couples therapy from the renowned Gottman Institute. Ingrid is currently being mentored in using the Gottman Method. Melissa does not see couples. Contact us today for further information or book an appointment online. See our FAQs to find out more.
Arguing never transforms conflict. Couples counselling can.
