Our clinic delivers evidence-based treatment for OCD, as well as other co-occurring psychological conditions. We help both OCD sufferers and their families get the help they deserve.

In order to provide a vital, centralised service for the WA OCD community, we have brought together Perth’s first dedicated team of highly experienced, independently practising clinical psychologists.

Our team regularly works alongside Perth’s leading consultant psychiatrists and general practitioners, to facilitate a multidisciplinary treatment approach.

Ongoing professional development

Training, supervision and
OCD workshops

All of our clinical psychologists attend ongoing professional development workshops that focus on different subtypes and areas unique to OCD. In addition to their ongoing training, each clinician has a wide range of experience and training in other psychological areas. This ensures that we’re able to match each client’s unique experience of OCD with the most appropriate clinical psychologist.

At Perth OCD Clinic, we also provide advanced training to other mental health care professionals in the assessment and treatment of OCD and related disorders.
