About Us

Remote Psych is an Australian Telehealth Psychology practice which was originally developed to service the needs of rural, regional and remote clients, as well as Australians overseas. Due to Covid-19 and the increase in demand and eligibility for telehealth services, we are able to offer our services to clients in metropolitan areas.

Remote Psych provide all sessions with your psychologist via telehealth. This occurs via Zoom video conferencing on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Zoom allows for your clinician to share documents with you, use the interactive whiteboard and other technology which connects you both, despite being in different locations.

With Clinicians located across Australia, we offer flexible session times and after hours appointments.
