About The Practice

Onwards and Upwards Psychology is a paediatric private practice located in the heart of the Inner Western suburbs of Melbourne. Some of the common presentations seen are children with anxiety, depression, parental separation, emotional regulation difficulties and low self-esteem, some of who have autism, Intellectual Disability and/or ADHD. We pride ourselves on a collaborative approach with the families and the community, with some of our families having stayed with the principal psychologist for years.

Collaboration with the community has also resulted in workshops presented on a topic of interest relevant to families concerns, as well as an illustrated series on the autistic experience. Our aim is to become well-known resource for families in the Inner West and to add value back to the community. We have established referral networks from schools and paediatricians, with clients ready to be seen by the right person.
