Catalyst Psychology is a boutique private psychology practice located in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We have been working with our community for over 11 years. Our experienced Psychologists provide services for children, adolescents, young adults, adults and parents in our Bayswater and Malvern clinics and via telehealth. 

We focus on helping you improve your life and wellbeing. Psychological treatments can help you be happier, calmer, more energetic, more enthusiastic and more satisfied with your relationships. They are also proven to assist children and teens with their development, thinking and learning.

Our friendly staff are committed to delivering scientifically-based assessments and therapies. However, we also tailor services to your individual needs so that you achieve your goals and feel confident you can overcome difficulties – now and in the future.

We have extensive experience in conducting high quality Psychology Assessments for children (5 yrs+), adolescents and young adults. These can help assess for learning difficulties (e.g., Dyslexia, Dyspraxia), IQ or Intelligence, Giftedness, and Developmental Disorders such as ADHD and Autism. We also regularly help clients with applications for NDIS funding. We currently also accept referrals for Psychology Assessments of ADHD and Intelligence/Giftedness in adults.


Our psychologists are specifically trained in working with kids. We're caring and fun, so your child will feel comfortable getting the support they need. We guide parents on how to assist their child's wellbeing and learning.


Our psychologists are highly experienced and expertly trained in working with teenagers. We're approachable and skilled in developing working relationships with young people. We also support parents of teenagers through this tricky time.
