Interaction’s Psychologists specialise in providing individual and group therapy to children, adolescents and adults with an intellectual/developmental disability, as well as their carers and support people. You or the person you care for might have significant challenges with emotion regulation and interpersonal relationships, or might be experiencing a range of emotional, behavioural and social difficulties. Our therapists are here to help support people with a variety of presentations including grief and loss, adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship and family breakdown and trauma.
At Interaction, we provide therapeutic interventions that are tailored to each individual client. All our interventions are evidence-based, and our therapists are flexible in their approach and responsive to client needs. We believe in the importance of generalising skills outside of the therapy room, and encourage the involvement of other support people – where appropriate – such as a support worker or family member, to assist in practising new skills. As such, sessions can be held with an individual, a family, or with the individual and a carer/family member.
Interaction’s therapists’ practice in line with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and relevant legislation. Our Psychologists have experience in the disability, out-of-home care and youth sectors.
