Bernadette Keegan & Associates Psychologists have been established in Richmond since May 1994. We offer a number of psychologists who specialise in various areas of psychological difficulties.

We live in a complex world and are faced with a range of challenges and stresses. As individuals, couples or families, we may at times feel isolated or without direction.

The psychologists have many years' experience in childhood, adolescent and family therapy. and can assist you and / or your family with a variety of issues. These may include parenting, child or adolescent behavioural problems, past or present traumas, loss and change. An individually tailored program is developed to meet each client's needs. In developing solutions, the psychologist can offer a range of expertise, skills and techniques, including family therapy and clinical hypnotherapy.

When you phone to arrange an appointment, we endeavour to schedule the psychologist and time most suitable to you.

We understand finding free time is difficult. After hours and weekend appointments are available.
