Our psychologists use a range of empirically supported psychotherapeutic interventions to promote behaviour change and interpersonal functioning, as well as to enhance emotional and psychological wellbeing. Our approach is supportive, and practitioners draw on both theoretical and experiential evidence to assist clients in understanding and overcoming their challenges.

Ripple Psychology is one of the few clinics on the Sunshine Coast to offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). EMDR is the emerging treatment of choice for recovery from trauma, and has recently been endorsed as such by the World Health Organisation. As well as its primary application in treating PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), the approach is also effective in treating pain, depression, anxiety and other disorders.
