Welcome to the RMIT University Psychology Clinic

The RMIT University Psychology Clinic was established in 1976 and is part of the University’s postgraduate clinical postgraduate programs. The clinic has an excellent reputation for high quality psychological services for children, adolescents and adults.



About the clinic

Clinical sessions are primarily conducted by postgraduate psychology interns completing their fifth, sixth, or seventh year of study. Interns are registered provisional psychologists. They are supervised by and work closely with senior psychologist clinic staff who are RMIT staff members.

What to expect

Your involvement with the clinic will commence with a comprehensive initial interview where information relevant to your particular concerns will be obtained.

During the interview, and at subsequent times, you may be asked to complete a number of questionnaires or rating scales. These are helpful in designing a program and evaluating its effectiveness. Between sessions you may be asked to record information that will be useful to your clinician in determining the best treatment strategies. Subsequent sessions will involve monitoring progress and addressing your specific concerns. Regular follow-up contact is also conducted to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of treatment, where appropriate.
