About the RMIT Psychology Clinic

The RMIT University Psychology Clinic was established in 1976 and is operated by the Discipline of Psychology, within the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences, RMIT University. Since its inception, the RMIT University Psychology Clinic has developed an excellent reputation for high quality clinical services for children, adolescents, and adults.

The Clinic offers a referral based clinical facility for adults, children, adolescents and families who are experiencing behavioural, emotional, and clinical issues (e.g., anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues). Clinical activities involve close liaison and consultation with referring agencies.

Our Team

Clinical sessions are primarily conducted by postgraduate psychology interns completing their fifth and sixth year of study. Interns are registered provisional psychologists. They are supervised by and work closely with our senior clinical psychology staff.

Services

What to expect

Following the initial screening and intake process, a comprehensive initial interview will be completed by one of our Psychology Interns, 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 treatment program tailored to your needs 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.

Making a referral

The clinic accepts a wide range of referrals, including self-referrals, and referrals from doctors, other agencies, parents, and schools. Permission will be sought from the client when a referral is made on their behalf.

You do not need a doctor's referral to make an appointment. Self referrals are welcome. However, a letter from your GP or psychiatrist can help with ensuring continuity of care.

Clients are allocated according to our waiting list. Our waiting list times vary depending on the type of referral and the caseload of our clinicians. Clients will be advised of an approximate waiting time when the referral is made.
