About Us

My Image

The principal psychologist is Darren Eger.  He is a Psychologist with over 30 years of experience in clinical, forensic and organisational psychology. 

A wide variety of people seek assistance from the practice in terms of gender and age. Darren has expertise in a range of clinical issues and a particular interest in the issues associated with adolescence. The practice philosophy celebrates the individuality of all people and works hard to tailor our service delivery to match your needs.

Rather than list a range of categories for people to examine for "best fit", we encourage you to contact us directly to discuss your needs. We will then be happy to assist you directly or connect you with alternative options that best meet your needs. 

If this is your first contact with a psychologist or counselling, then please feel free to read our information sheet. It might not answer all of your questions but is a good place to start. We like talking to people who would like to know how a Psychologist might be useful to them but are not sure where or how to begin. Please feel free to call us and discuss how we might be able to assist you before making up your mind about making an appointment. We look forward to speaking with you.
