Welcome to forPsych

We offer a range of psychological services for adults, children, families and other agencies.

forPsych provides services across Northern Tasmania, with outreach into the North West and North East, and other areas or states by arrangement. Additionally, most services are also available by secure telehealth, removing most geographic restrictions to access.

Strong clinical skills underpin all of our psychological services, whether forensic, general psychology or disability.  Clinical and forensic assessment, interviewing, report writing, strong verbal communication skills (especially as an expert witness in court) and case presentation are vital elements of our practice of forensic and wider psychology.

With these skills, we effectively perform such tasks as: competence & capacity; psychological impact assessments; family and parenting assessments; psychological diagnoses; criminal & other forensic assessments; NDIS / disability services*; cognitive, achievement and functional assessments; supervision and training programs for psychologists, and services to veterans.

We pride ourselves in all aspects of our work, and strive to provide a non-confrontational, relatable service, where our clients feel comfortable, heard and safe.
