Dr Sam Minge
Sam received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Griffith University in Brisbane in 2009, and has worked in many settings including private practice, hospital, community forensic settings, and prisons.
Sam assists individuals with a range of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. He has particular expertise in helping people with longstanding personality difficulties, reactions to past traumatic events, addictive behaviours (including drugs, alcohol, sex, and gambling issues), and other types of problem behaviour (e.g., offending behaviour).
Sam is a compassionate, thoughtful, and humanistic person with training in CBT, ACT, DBT, schema therapy, mindfulness, and short-term psychodynamic therapy. His primary therapeutic mode is schema therapy, for which he is currently undertaking his certification. He does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to therapy and places great importance on really listening to his clients to determine how best to help them. He works with adults, couples and children, and also provides clinical supervision to other psychologists.
Sam also has extensive experience providing assessment, treatment, and consultation for forensic matters. This includes writing reports for Court and appearing as expert witness.
Jessica is an experienced forensic psychologist who received her master’s degree in forensic psychology from Bond University in 2014. She has since worked in private practice, prisons, government treatment services, and not-for-profit organisations. She has expertise in the assessment and treatment both of mental health difficulties and problem behaviour.
Jessica is a down to earth, non-judgemental, and no-nonsense psychologist who believes that everybody has the capacity for growth and change. She takes a humanistic and evidence-based approach to the assessment and treatment of her clients.
Yes, our psychologists are offering both Telehealth and face to face appointments depending on your needs and circumstances.
We are currently experiencing high demand and some wait times are common. The wait time fluctuates depending on various factors and is not possible to predict accurately ahead of time. Please contact us to enquire as to our current availability.
We require at least 24 hours notice. This allows us to offer the appointment to someone else who needs it. You will receive a reminder text 48 hours before your appointment.
We are not able to offer bulk billing.
A mental health care plan can be obtained from your GP. Make sure you mention to the GP clinic on the phone when making the appointment that you are after a mental health care plan, because they will need to schedule a longer appointment. Almost all GPs can conduct assessments for mental health care plans.
Yes, we are able to provide psychological support under the NDIS, so long as your funds are either self-managed or plan-managed.
