About Our Services

Our Approach 

At Inner Eastern Psychology, we provide clinical services that are evidence-based and person-centred. Individual therapy is at the core of our work and is complemented by family and parent therapies. Our clients come from a range of life stages and include children, adolescents and adults. We pride ourselves in working with individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds and identities.

Our services are summarised below. Since a person’s experiences may not be defined by any single set of words, we believe in using a dynamic and collaborative process to find the appropriate therapeutic approach with you.
