Finding a psychologist in Mosman
At Amber Mordaunt psychology we pride ourselves on being experts at finding the right psychologist for your needs. When you first book in to our Mosman office we will ask you several questions on the phone so your treating psychologist will have some history about you. These questions are not meant to make you feel uncomfortable, they help your treating psychologist know a little about you before your first session. A Mosmanpsychologist can help.
