How we can help

Who We Are

We’re an innovative psychology and well-being organisation that provides high quality psychological services for individuals, couples, and for claimants in the workers' compensation system. Headway offers other complementary services including dietetic, exercise and sleep interventions to provide a more holistic approach to mental health and well-being. These services are offered for individuals with an accepted workers' compensation claim and for those as part of an Employee Well-being Service (EWS), which is more commonly known as an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

How we can help


The way a person thinks and acts determines how they feel about themselves, the world and the future. We assist clients with their thought processes, behaviours and relationships to mitigate distress and enhance wellbeing. We have a team of experienced Clinical and Counselling Psychologists to help you with a range of different problems such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma and personality disorders.

How we can help


It has been estimated that up to 45% of Australians have problems with getting enough quality sleep. At Headway, we understand the importance of getting a full night's sleep and have a team of experts with special interest in both the physical and psychological contributors to sleep disturbance.

How we can help


We are what we eat! The link between diet and mental health is becoming more prevalent with ongoing research. We have Accredited Practising Dietitians who can provide expertise in nutrition, gut health, weight management, gastrointestinal issues, chronic diseases and eating for health.

How we can help


We know the benefits of exercise on our overall health and wellbeing but many of us struggle to find the time to make it part of our routine. Headway's Physiotherapist can help you with exercise plans for chronic health problems, injuries, to improve fitness or effectively manage mental health issues.

How we can help


Our clinical and counselling psychologists provide treatment for couples and individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship or marital problems, stress, pain and workplace issues. We encourage referrals from individuals, insurers, general practitioners, psychiatrists and other psychologists.

Fees range from $180 - $230. Rebates range from $86.15 - $126.50 for 10 individual sessions per year under a Mental Health Care Plan. Some private health policies cover psychology, so check with your insurer to determine your eligibility.
