Glenelg Psychology was opened as a set of psychology consulting rooms in 1997 by Sandy Litt. Since then, it has been the home of many provisional psychologists, training towards full registration as well as psychology students on placements.
Today Glenelg Psychology has three registered psychologists, and a visiting clinical psychologist, offering an extensive range of services. It has built a strong reputation in the community as a quality psychology practice, and endeavours to provide empowering healthcare.
We hope that you will find it a warm, welcoming and safe place to visit.
