About Us

Gates Psychology is a leader in the treatment of mental health disorders and the development of well-being for individuals, couples and organisations. We are located on the corner of Spence and Lake Streets in the heart of Cairns.

The Clinical Psychologists at Gates Psychology are all highly experienced and focussed on your specific needs. We care and are committed to helping you with your issues and concerns, together with enhancing your more general happiness and well-being.

Therapy and Counselling

Therapy and counselling is offered to individuals, couples and organisations. Treatment and counselling is always respectful and confidential. Initially, your own individual needs are discussed when considering the goals of your therapy. Our Clinical Psychologists then utilise evidence-based treatment programs that have been demonstrated through vigorous research to be effective in symptom reduction.

At Gates Psychology, treatment is provided for all types of issues including Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Sleep difficulties, Relationship issues, problematic Drug and Alcohol use, Post-traumatic Stress, Obsessions and Compulsions, Anger management, Phobias, Grief and Loss.

With our extensive experience and evidence-based therapies, our Clinical Psychologists consider no psychological issues to be untreatable.

Positive Psychology

At Gates Psychology, we specialise in the promotion of your well-being and happiness. Our Clinical Psychologists can assist you with improving your communication skills, assertiveness and self-esteem, as well as parenting, relationships, coping skills, stress management skills, goal setting and attainment, or simply just getting the most out of your life.

Workcover and Rehabilitation

We recognise that special care is needed at what is often a most challenging time for individuals who have been injured in their workplace. Gates Psychology have extensive experience in providing appropriate treatment in these situations and take pride in the high level of service we provide in the management of these special cases.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)

Our working life is often a key factor in our happiness and well-being. Employers, too, recognise that their staff's health is to be promoted and therefore offer their workers the opportunity to seek psychological assistance. These mental health initiatives are known as Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). Gates Psychology provides psychological support to private and government organisations in the form of these Employee Assistance Programs.

Our Commitment to You

At Gates Psychology, we are committed to providing a service that is straightforward, confidential, reliable, honest and continually striving for excellence. Your dignity is paramount and we offer respect, as well as recognition that individual choice leads to better treatment outcomes.

Our passion for helping you is at the heart of our success.
