What is psychological therapy?
As an individual navigates the different stages of their life, they may experience emotional and psychological challenges associated with these transitions. Psychological assessments and therapy aim to assist individuals to identify strategies that address these challenges.
Psychological therapy services are available for children over 5 years of age, adolescents and adults. Our psychologists work collaboratively with the autistic individual to develop personal goals that can be focused on in therapy.
All Autism SA Psychologists are regulated by the professional body Allied Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and are recognised as provisionally registered or registered Psychologists.
How can I benefit from psychological therapy?
Autistic individuals of all ages can benefit from psychological therapy, with skill development and support in a range of areas such as:
- Emotional regulation
- Social and emotional wellbeing
- Stress and anxiety
- Organisational skills
- Executive functioning skills
- Work-related skills
- Life transitions
Developing an individual’s skills in these areas can support them to achieve their psychosocial and emotional goals. Engagement in psychological therapy can also support inclusion and participation in the community.
How can I access the service?
Psychological services can be accessed at either of our clinics at Elizabeth or Tonsley or via telehealth, meaning we can support people who live regionally, remote or even interstate.
