Services for Clients


Individual Therapy Sessions

Different reasons that drive people to seek psychological therapy include:

  • Major life transitions (e.g., death of a loved one, moving out of home and parental separation/divorce)​

  • Life stressors (e.g., bullying, loss of important relationships, loss of job)

  • Anxiety and/or depression management

  • Skill building (e.g., social skills training, improving self-esteem, assertiveness, conflict resolution, organisation and planning)

  • Anger management

  • Addressing school refusal

Parental Support

Parenting can be stressful at the best of times. Certain stages of your child's development might feel more challenging than others, which can make you feel uncertain or burned out. I believe that all parents are experts when it comes to their children. I aspire to offer empathic, non-judgmental guidance and support during stressful times, using my understanding of research in child development. Areas I can support parents with include:

  • Addressing challenging behaviours in children

  • Understanding their child's diagnosis (ASD, ADHD, Specific Learning Disorder, etc)

  • Mindful parenting

  • Supporting their child's big emotions

  • Setting boundaries with children

ASD & ADHD Diagnostic Assessments

An Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) assessment helps us find out if a person meets the diagnostic criteria based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5-TR). The assessment procedures vary between child and adult clients. I offer the ADOS-2 assessment, which is deemed to be part of the gold standard for child and adolescent ASD diagnostic evaluation. You can schedule an initial appointment with me to discuss your referral concerns and next steps to address them before committing to an assessment.

Adult ADHD Assessment/ ASD Assessment

Our practice is also experienced in conducting ASD and/or ADHD assessments for adults. These are comprehensive assessments, involving in-depth interviews to obtain one's relevant early childhood and developmental history, educational history, social history, medical and/or mental health history, as well as family history. After that, a separate session(s) for clinical interviews with questions directly related to ASD and/or ADHD. Additionally, a series of self- and observer-rated questionnaires will be sent out for clients and their nominated informant to fill out in their own time. In general, we also include a session to conduct a cognitive assessment. All the information collated will then be scored, analysed and presented in a comprehensive report (20-30 page report, depending on complexity). For adult clients, there is an option to choose a summary report instead, if you wish.

Psychoeducational Assessments

This assessment looks at a range of areas of cognitive ability (or IQ, in layman's terms), academic achievement, executive functioning skills and a number of social, emotional and behavioural factors to determine a student's strengths and difficulties in learning. This can be helpful for students with suspected giftedness, and a good place to start for students with learning difficulties.

Cognitive assessments (for 6 year-olds and above) used:

  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fifth Edition: Australian and New Zealand Standardised Edition (WISC-V)

  • The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV)

Academic assessment used:

Wechsler Individual Achievement Test - Australian and New Zealand Standardised, Third Edition (WIAT-III A&NZ)

Specific Learning Disorder Diagnostic Assessments

Our practice offers cross battery assessments, which is shown by research to be the gold standard for Specific Learning Disorder (i.e., Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia) enquiries. This is because they are are more comprehensive than a standard psychoeducational assessment (as below), and can include phonetic awareness and/or long-term memory storage and retrieval assessments. However, cross battery assessments can be offered at a reduced rate when done by provisional psychologists under Jasmine's supervision.


Vocational and Career Assessments

For adolescents in the later stages of their schooling, or adults who are contemplating a change of career or vocation, completing a vocational assessment can help guide them with recommendations about pathways of study and career choices. Our Career and Vocational assessments are conducted by our provisional psychologist, whose services are offered at a reduced cost, and include a personality assessment to support clients to improve their self-understanding.

A vocational assessment typically involves:

  • An initial consultation session to gather important information (50 minutes)

  • Completion of standardised questionnaires that investigate personality, strengths, interests, talents, desired occupations and current abilities

  • Clients can choose between receiving a verbal feedback session to explain the findings, or to also opt for a written report with personalised recommendations about study and career pathways.

Playing with Play Dough

Play Therapy
With our Provisional Psychologist (Reduced Cost)

Play therapy is a powerful means of joining with the innate, creative, non-verbal capacities of children in order to engage and work therapeutically with them. It is a developmentally appropriate, evidence-based method of counselling younger clients.


In play therapy, children can play out, literally and/or metaphorically, their inner and real life experiences in a way that builds insight and capacity. Play therapy allows children to express, regulate, communicate, practice and master new skills as well as their emotional responses.
