Psychology Services

NADO’s Psychology Service has been established in order to provide a comprehensive range of psychological services by an experienced psychologist.


One of the reasons you would meet with a psychologist is to learn more about yourself and how your mind works and the relationship between your beliefs and thoughts as well as how you are feeling and behaving and to do this, therapy works best when a collaborative relationship is formed between therapist and participants.


NADO now offers Psychology Services for the following:


  • Emotion Wellbeing Support - one on one psychological therapy/counselling and brief behavioural strategies
  • Behaviour Assessment and Support
  • Cognitive and Adaptive Functioning Assessments for Children and Adults -  to determine the level of functioning and need for support 
  • Anxiety Disorders and Phobias
  • Depression
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Anger Management
  • Eating Disorders
  • Self-esteem Issues
  • Addictions
  • Communication Problems
  • Workplace Concerns
  • Relationship Problems
