The Possums Clinic Perth
We’re excited to be the flagship Possums Clinic Perth and we are delighted to offer support to families who are facing breastfeeding, baby sleep, baby crying, and parent mood challenges.
Each of our practitioners are fully accredited in Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC) or the Possums programs.
We support parents using Acceptance & Commitment Therapy skills, but we are not a psychology service and unfortunately we can’t accept crisis referrals or mental health care plans.
At the Possums Clinic you’ll receive evidence-based support

We aim to make our services both as thorough and as accessible as possible with individual consultations (privately billed, no Medicare rebate) and group appointments (shared medical consult privately billed with Medicare rebate).
