What We Offer



  • We are currently unable to provide subsidised psychology sessions under Medicare (Mental Health Care Plans) but do offer a full fee paying psychology service.
  • We do accept NDIS Plans and include therapy, progress reviews, reporting, support letters and other services related to your Plan.
  • In addition to therapy, we offer cognitive assessments (neurological function, strengths and weaknesses, giftedness, delays/disability), psychological assessments (diagnosis of most DSM5 disorders) and educational assessments (learning strengths and weaknesses).
  • We do not currently diagnose autism spectrum disorder but welcome clients who are diagnosed and seeking support.
  • Telehealth services (video or telephone) are available, though please note not all clients will be suited to remote support delivery. We are happy to discuss your needs with you.
  • All psychology staff currently working at Good Prospects are provisional psychologists (interning). Please check with your Private Health Insurer as to whether you are able to claim rebates when seeing a provisional psychologist, as requirements vary between providers.





Establishing whether therapy is required and what goals might be is the role of a thorough assessment. Unless a client has had a recent assessment with another speech pathologist or psychologist this is usually the starting point. This service can provide assessments only without therapy and these can take place either at the practice, via telehealth, at a client’s home or on any educational site assuming that the appropriate permission has been obtained. Assessments vary in length but will be negotiated with the client, parent or site based on information about the person with communication or psychological needs.





Speech and language screening is available for pre-school and school sites by negotiation.



Individual Therapy


Individual therapy is available at all of our 5 village office sites or by negotiation with sites such as nursing homes, childcare centres and schools. Therapy sessions are generally 45 or 60 minutes long and are either weekly or fortnightly depending on need and the financial situation of the parent or caregiver. This practice has a commitment to making therapy relevant, interesting and transferable to other situations so parents or those involved are actively encouraged to participate in sessions (& do homework!) and materials used are age-appropriate and highly motivational (including computer-based activities where appropriate).


The high level of training and experience of the speech pathologists and psychologists in this practice means that straight forward issues are often resolved much more quickly as current researched practice is used and we pride ourselves on being up to date with evidence-based practice that works.


An informal lending library operates so activities can be continued at home.



Tele Health Therapy


All practitioners at Good Prospects are experienced tele health providers meaning that we can provide assessment and therapy services to people who are not necessarily located geographically close to one of our offices. Many regional areas in particular have poor access to services and we are happy to help.


Group Therapy


Group therapy, particularly in the areas of language including (AAC and social skills) and literacy and stroke rehabilitation are available at the practice or on pre-school or school sites. Specific evidence-based research programs are employed to ensure that maximum progress is gained.



Preventative Programs


These are designed to be implemented in sites over the relatively short term such that sites are empowered to continue such programming without the direct assistance of a speech-language pathologist or psychologist over the long term. Please see the training and development section for more details.



Training and Development


Training and/or professional development is available for small or large organisations including playgroups, childcare centres, pre-schools and schools, GP clinics and nursing homes. This is by negotiation. For information about possible packages, please see the information provided for Educators and Health Care Practitioners on the main page of this site.
