Finding low-cost psychological therapy options is a challenge.
One potential avenue is through psychology clinics attached to universities.
I just got notice from a colleague of mine at UniSA that the UniSA Psychology Clinic at Magill currently has adult psychological therapy appointments available with no wait time.
I’ve taken the following information from their website – https://www.unisa.edu.au/Campus-Facilities/community-clinics/Psychology-Clinic/
Also, if you are wondering if Flinders has a psychology clinic, then yes it does. They only treat anxiety disorders though. See their details – https://www.flinders.edu.au/engage/community/clinics/psychology-clinic
