Meet our Psychologists and learn more about our practice and what guides us.
Every Psychologist at Humanique has 3 things in common; a passion for helping others, empathy for those in suffering, and excellence in clinical training. We are driven by our mission of connecting the people of Perth, WA with the highest quality of accessible and affordable mental health services.
Humanique was founded in 2018 and our philosophy is simple; to promote psychological well-being through a positive and supportive therapeutic relationship, and to “normalise” psychotherapy. Our emotional concerns are as legitimate and valid as their physical counterparts. Anyone should be free to get the mental help they need anytime, without unnecessary inconvenience, excessive costs or unfounded stigma.
Humanique is actively involved in the community and regularly supports a range of both local and overseas charities with a focus on mental health and helping disadvantaged children. We’re also proud adopters of Hector and Koyah, our Turtle and Orangutan 🙂 . Most recently, we’ve picked up granting wishes with the Starlight Foundation and helping children be seen and protected through our regular donations to Barnardos.
