With Aristotle’s guiding maxim in mind, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”, Dr Nick Marsden established Marsden Clinical Psychology in 2013 as a holistic, diverse and community-based mental health service, in the heart of the Illawarra region.
Today, Marsden Psychology is a dedicated team of + 20 experts and support staff who have been working in the field of psychological and neuropsychological services for over 20 years. Focused on our local community and its constantly evolving needs, our approach has always been to research problems within the community, assess individual needs and develop action-oriented community-based programs, while taking up the challenge of keeping up to date with the best practices, assessment tools and latest discoveries in the field.
Because we value and respect the needs of our community and actively seek feedback on our services, we have recently made some changes at Marsden Psychology. We have taken steps to move toward two specialised mental health clinics: the Kids Clinic, and the Stress and Trauma Centre.
Both are located in the health hub of Corrimal, a central location for those in both the northern and southern suburbs of the Illawarra, and within reach of Campbelltown and Sutherland Shire. The Kids Clinic focuses on child development and mental health. We have a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals with expertise in child development and the collaboration allows for a more comprehensive for children. We specialize in Autism and ADHD.
Here’s what Dr Nick Marsden had to say about the Kids Clinic:
“The vision that I have had for the Kids Clinic has been helped along by my own kids. When my son asked me ‘What do you do at work, Daddy?’ I had to stop and think. I had to convey some relatively complex things in a way that a preschooler would understand. Try explaining ‘psychology’ to a three-year-old! I eventually settled with ‘I help people to be happy’. Aside from being proud of meeting the ‘simplicity’ brief, the more I thought about it the more this explanation resonated with me. As a psychologist, if we are not ultimately contributing to the improved happiness and wellbeing of others, then we are not doing our job.”
