Psychcentral began in 2005 in the Canterbury-Bankstown City Council (CBCC) areas of Lakemba and Bankstown provides culturally-competent allied health and disability service to the Canterbury-Bankstown communities. With offices is multiple locations we are easily accessible and pride ourselves in delivering a professional health and disability service that accommodates individuals and their families from multicultural backgrounds.
Psychcentral was founded in 2005 by Hanan. She is a clinical and forensic psychologist who was born and raised, and still resides in the CBCC being a true local of the city. Hanan recognised that there was an immediate need to provide a culturally-competent psychological service to meet the needs of the diverse communities in South Western Sydney.
Since then, the practice has grown to expanding its services to other allied health clinicians, providing occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech therapy, exercise physiology, rehabilitation counsellors, social workers, behavioural therapy, and dieticians.
Our team of highly skilled allied health professionals are also bilingual and / or multilingual to make available a diverse language stream to clients who may struggle accessing mainstream services due to language barriers.
Our practice is also located in multiple locations for easier accessibility for clients and we also provide in-home allied health consultations in additional to telehealth services.
Our allied health team work very closely with relevant stake holders involved in the care of our clients including, but not limited to: doctors, specialists, NDIS support co-ordinators, PHNs, and rehabilitation case workers to provide the best evidence-based assessments and treatments for people across the life span.
Our staff attend regular professional development seminars, courses, and workshops to remain skilled with the latest evidence—based clinical skills and knowledge to best treat our clients.
Additionally, we provide in-house training for staff to remain engaged and up to date about the specific needs of our clients where their families, cultures, and spiritualities interact in their treatments serving our diverse local communities respecting their backgrounds to work with them in meeting their therapeutic goals.
Our team consists of over 40 clinicians who account for significant years of combined clinical experiences at Psychcentral and we have helped over 20,000 people in the region.
