About The Centre

NSWADTC was established at Hunter St Newcastle in 2000 following recognition of the need for a professional evidence based specialist anxiety treatment centre. Professional staff at the centre are all registered psychologists and members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). In order to gain membership to the APS psychologists must undergo a minimum of six years formal training in psychology, guaranteeing that the the treatment you receive will be conducted by staff who are highly trained in understanding human behaviours and emotions. APS psychologists are also governed by a strict code of conduct and professional ethics (click on the APS logo at the bottom of the page to go to the APS web site). Registration with the NSW Psychologists Registration Board also ensures that the treatment you receive from your registered psychologist will meet the highest possible ethical and professional standards.

Confidentiality is strictly maintained by staff at NSWADTC (within the limitations of the law). Both professional and support staff understand the importance of this guiding principle and administration staff are required to sign a non-disclosure confidentiality agreement at the initiation of their employment.

Staff at the centre are dedicated to the provision of the most up to date and effective evidence based assistance for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. With this in mind, staff regularly review the latest research findings and attend anxiety specific conferences both in Australia and overseas to ensure that you receive the best available treatment information at all times.

At the centre we also try to maintain a comfortable, pleasant atmosphere and surroundings for your treatment environment. Privacy is maintained in a number of ways such as via the waiting room design, which enables you on most occasions to enter and leave without coming into contact with other clients or their families. All consults are conducted individually (although you may bring a friend or relative if you wish) and you will always be assisted by the same psychologist for the duration of your treatment. You can also be assured that you will be treated in a truly respectful and non-judgmental manner at all times. Below we have included a couple of images of the interior of the centre for your convenience. Please feel free to make contact if there is any other information about the centre you would like that is not mentioned here.
