Our Culture

We practice what we preach in many ways at iPsychology. Our team catch ups are all about connecting, reflecting, and enjoying ourselves and each other. We value our own mental health and each of us have been in the client chair. We encourage our Psychologists to take regular breaks from the therapy room and enjoy being ‘ourselves’ as well as Psych’s. We get regular exercise, eat reasonably well (as Mindfulness can be done with chocolate!) and have regular catch ups. We might be seen at local restaurants having a laugh, walking along the beach or the lovely streets of Chelsea Heights.
