About Us

FSA Psychology is a trusted and compassionate provider of mental health services in our community. Previously known as Warehouse One7 and with specialisation in supporting children, adolescents, and their families, the change to FSA Psychology coincided with the expansion of our service to include adults. This expansion enabled us to provide a comprehensive and integrated community service across all ages and increase our ability to meet the mental health needs observed in our community. We have extensive clinical mental health expertise and an ethos of meeting people “where they’re at”. FSA Psychology will help you better understand difficult emotions and behaviours and learn strategies to manage these effectively.
