I’m Rachael O’Byrne, a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of experience, and the founder and principal of Fremantle Clinical Psychology and Counselling - the group private practice that grew out of my desire to work where I have always lived and provide my local community with excellence in psychological support.
I was intent on creating a beautiful, calm, thoughtful space in Fremantle that resonated with me, my team and our clients. A space that could hold and embrace the enormous strength, vulnerability, pain, joy (and laughter) that is experienced and that heals us.
From this beginning in 2012 grew our incredible team of Fremantle Clinical Psychologists, Counselling Psychologists, Psychologists and Counsellors. Each therapist is highly skilled and - essentially - brings not only a necessary love and commitment to their work, but also a love of Freo and a deep understanding of the people who live here.
Together, we now support around 150 local women, men, couples, families, teens and children every week at our two central Fremantle locations.
Our therapists continue to work from our original practice in the Ellen Health Medical Centre Building, and now also from our second practice within Fremantle Psychiatry, which allows us to work more closely with an incredible team of local child, adolescent and adult Psychiatrists to optimise the clinical care we provide our clients.
I really want people in Fremantle to have access to the best mental health care available and feel extremely privileged that together with other established local and specialist mental health services, we really are helping to make that happen.
Sincerely - Rachael
