Our psychologists

Attuned psychologists have post graduate University qualifications in psychology and each has significant professional practice experience in both public and private settings so you can be assured we have the knowledge, skills and experience to help you. We have a mixture of Registered and Clinical Psychologists and a Neuropsychologist on our team.

Our Psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia and Full Members of the Australian Psychological Society or Australian Association of Psychologists, and as such bound by a code of ethics that guarantees you will receive a quality confidential service.

Our professionalism as Psychologists and as recognised health providers qualifies our services for either private health insurance or Medicare Rebates, depending on the nature of the issues and the service.

Our therapists

Attuned Psychotherapists  have Masters university and other additional qualifications and each has significant professional practice experience so you can be assured they have the knowledge, skills and experience to help you.

Both of our Psychotherapists Yolanda Evans and Anne Marie Newham are highly experienced Accredited Mental Health Social Workers and have worked  extensively in child, youth, and mental health settings.

Unlike many counsellors or therapists, they attract Medicare rebates for therapeutic services as Medicare has required them to meet strict additional mental health training, extensive supervision and professional development requirements.

In terms of private cover some funds like BUPA and Teachers Health cover Accredited Mental Health Social workers so please check with your fund to determine if you are eligible to see one of our Psychotherapists/Mental Health Social Workers.

Like psychologists they are required to keep updating their understanding of therapeutic models, undergo supervision and are required to maintain the strictest of ethical standards. 

Additionally, our non-Psychologist Therapists are bound by the same principles as the psychologists who work at Attuned Psychology, as well as those stipulated by their professional associations and the principles of law.

Our Provisional Psychologist

Please note that Anne Marie Newham, one of our Accredited Mental Health Social Workers mentioned above has recently gone back to study to complete her psychology training. Anne Marie has completed 4 years of her psychology training and is now practicing as a Provisional Psychologist.

Over the next 2 years  she will be closely supervised as she gathers more clinical experience providing psychological services. Her goal is to become a Registered Psychologist to add to her qualifications and significant experience as an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. 

Welcoming rooms plus teleheath

We ensure your experience is comfortable, confidential and safe.

Our welcoming, relaxing and private consulting rooms in North Adelaide and Glenelg , will help you feel like you are visiting a trusted friend rather than a clinical practice.

Plus, a number of our clients have started using telehealth with us, so they can have their therapy sessions via video or phone; it’s now an important way that we can maintain continuity of care during the pandemic and beyond.

As we adapt to more hybrid ways of working and greater emphasis on flexibility, we note our community has embraced the options available to them and we are pleased that there is now permanent Government support for Medicare rebates for telehealth services as well as face to face services. This means that you are able to maintain services if you move interstate, travel, prefer the convenience of telehealth or need to do so due to illness. 

For further information, any enquiries or to make an appointment, please call us on 08 8361 7008.

We have practitioners available to see you during business hours,and after hours including some Saturdays

A flexible, thoughtful place

Our rooms are spacious and relaxing, with comfortable waiting areas while you wait, a large carpark at the rear and an impressive hallway with beautiful artworks as you walk through the building. We believe this setting provides a welcomed character rather than a corporate office environment.

We also take great care in ensuring infection control is kept to the highest standards and as such have clients spaced out in our rooms while they are waiting to keep everyone safe. We have done all we can to create an experience that facilitates change and growth by ensuring people feel comfortable enough to relax and talk.

We look forward to welcoming you or others you are connected to into our space.
