Psychology (cancer related issues)

A clinical psychologist is available at our South Brisbane clinic to offer interventions on cancer-related issues such as:

  • Adjusting to a diagnosis of cancer and working on stressors related to treatment.
  • Depression and mood management related to cancer and its treatment.
  • Chronic and acute pain management.
  • Health changing behaviours such as increasing motivation to exercise and having a healthy diet.
  • Personal growth – building self-esteem and confidence, identifying values, and beliefs.

Fees will apply for this service. HICAPS and private health fund rebates are available where applicable. Patients should also consult their doctor about whether they are eligible for a Medicare Better Access to Mental Health Plan.

For further information, or to make an appointment, please phone 07 3163 6000 (option 6, option 1).
