What types of psychological difficulties cannot be treated at the Northfields Psychology Clinic?
Emergency or Crisis Situations
Services at the Clinic are provided by intern psychologists who are currently not qualified to manage psychiatric crisis situations. Therefore, we do not provide emergency services to clients.
Legal Issues and Court Reports
The Clinic does not prepare reports for use in legal proceedings, including Tribunals. Due to their provisional registration, intern psychologists are not recognised as ‘experts’ by the legal system. As such, reports prepared by our therapists will not be recognised as expert evidence in court proceedings. Additionally, our intern psychologists are unable to appear in court proceedings to offer expert opinion.
