Psycnet primarily operates in the greater Sydney Metropolitan area. We also provide Telehealth as well as link directly to other professionals across NSW, Australia, New Zealand and overseas. Our psychologists provide counselling, trauma response, forensic and corporate psychology, mediation, conflict management, stress management, executive coaching and more.
We have consulted to law enforcement agencies, emergency services, private industry, government departments and not-for-profit organisations. We also provide specialist counselling services to the arts community, the legal profession, journalists, teachers, actors and the music industry.
Our team is large enough to offer comprehensive services at short notice, but small enough to be easily available to local, self-referred clients, GPs etc. We assist GPs in the management of their patients through Medicare, and organisational executives and staff through a comprehensive range of Employee Assistance Programs. We pride ourselves on our broad reach but also uniquely personal approach.
Best psychological practice is at the heart of the Psycnet approach.
We offer psychotherapy and counselling services that include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance-commitment and mindfulness-based therapies; group workshops, seminars and corporate training.
Therapists utilise a suite of CBT and psychodynamic approaches, as needed. Their expertise in various specialised modalities provides evidence-based treatment for phobias, anxiety-related conditions, life-transition issues, PTSD, depression and interpersonal conflict.
Risk assessment, critical incident management, trauma debriefing and counselling for anxiety and depression are all available through our corporate services.
'Manager-Assist' and executive coaching is available to senior managers to support them in dealing with critical incidents or other challenging situations in the workplace.
Our 1300 trauma hotline is accessible 24 hours, seven days per week.
Our clients have been major banks (CBA, ANZ), video store chains (Blockbuster), emergency services (police, fire, ambulance, SES, corporate security), CBD jewellery stores, licensed premises, cinemas, major hotel chains (Westin, Hilton), national trucking companies and many others.
Psycnet employee assistance programs (EAPs) provide a professional counselling service for staff members and their families who are experiencing personal or work related difficulties. We offer face-to-face, telephone and online counselling.
With experience in private industry, the government sector and the emergency services, our talent lies in tailoring programs to the organisation's specific needs. Our focus is in identifying opportunities for education or interventions such as mediation, and implementing reliable, effective follow-through.
Psycnet consultants teach participants how to achieve strength of purpose and consistency as managers who will lead robust, resilient workplace teams. To facilitate insight and vision in middle and upper management, we integrate compassion, vision, confidence and practical knowledge in our training modules.
Psycnet consultants have expert training in all areas of mediation and conflict resolution.
Our mediation program is an Australian first, combining the skills of clinical psychologists and family law mediators to help resolve interpersonal conflicts before they escalate into family court processes. This reduces the huge financial cost of litigation as well as ultimately benefitting the couple's and all family members' emotional healing.
Each program can also be tailored for family, relationship or workplace conflicts. Ours is a results-based methodology with a fully-documented record of success.
