Broulee Psychology understands that seeing a psychologist can be a difficult time. While we try our best to see clients as quickly as possible, at times there may be a wait before your initial or subsequent appointment. Where this is the case, it may be helpful to browse some online resources to support you while awaiting our service.

For young people, Kidshelpline (www.kidshelpline.com.au) provides information for children as young as five years of age. There is also information for parents and schools pertaining to children and adolescents, including a phone helpline and information online.
Beacon (www.beacon.anu.edu.au) is an online portal providing information about e-psychology programs for clients who are either awaiting service locally or who want to access support online.
