You're on a waitlist for your psychologist? Check out these mental health resources while you're waiting.
Why you might be on a waitlist
We're sorry we couldn't match you right away to one of our Melbourne psychologists.
Unlike some other practices, The Inner Collective remains a small and select boutique psychology practice so that we can offer the best quality of care that we can provide and remain agile to the needs of the community. That means you won't see an overwhelming number of faces on our team page.
Sometimes as a select psychology practice, it means that demand for our care and support often exceeds our availability. However, we'll get back to you immediately when a place opens up.
While you're on the waitlist...
We understand if you have to look for someone else.
Sometimes it's best to try to see someone for psychology support straight away rather than waiting. If this is the case, here are two links that can help you find a qualified psychologist:
The Australian Clinical Psychology Association (ACPA):
The Australian Psychological Society (APS):
Free online mental health courses.
