Psychology & Wellbeing
Who We Are
We’re an innovative psychology and wellbeing organisation that pioneered significant change in the corporate psychology industry by adding dietetic, exercise and sleep interventions as part of an Employee Wellbeing Service (EWS). These services along with counselling, provide a holistic approach that aims to maximise employee wellbeing and deliver an effective return on investment for employers.
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.
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.
We are what we eat! The link between diet and mental health is becoming more prevalent with ongoing research. We have an Accredited Practising Dietitian who can provide expertise in nutrition, gut health, weight management, gastrointestinal issues, chronic diseases and eating for health.
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 Exercise Physiologist can help you with exercise plans for chronic health problems, injuries, to improve fitness or effectively manage mental health issues.
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, the recommended fee set by the APS is $251 however we try to keep our fees lower to make services more accessible. 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 ascertain your eligibility.
We help organisations to effectively manage traumatic events that occur in the workplace. This includes the implementation of best practice principles and knowledge of contraindications.
We offer several comprehensive corporate training programs in the areas of mental health, wellbeing and leadership. We collaborate and work closely with our customers to tailor and customise training programs to meet the specific needs of the participant group.
We offer high quality and outcome-focused conflict resolution services, including mediation. Contact us today to find out more about our conflict resolution model and success rates.
We have a team of highly skilled and experienced psychologists that can provide guidance for managers, leaders and supervisors in the areas of organisational change, people leadership, resilience and managing mental health issues in the workplace.
