V & E Psychology is a private psychology service and fees do apply.
We are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of mental health care at affordable prices. Our psychologists have completed six - ten years of full time university studies, along with advanced training in various therapy techniques. Our psychologists engage in regular professional development programs, keep up to date with relevant research, and participate in ongoing supervision to reflect on and improve their therapeutic interventions.
