A warm welcome to The LifeWise Centre

At The LifeWise Centre, we offer highly skilled psychologists who will work with you to help in dealing well with your life.  Our approachable team of caring professionals create a respectful and safe environment where you can be sure that your confidentiality will be guarded well.

We have offices at Maitland and Warners Bay.  We provide counselling for depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, pain management, grief and loss, sexual assault, relationships, parenting and various other issues. We are accredited with NDIS and experienced working with NDIS clients.

We are here to help you during the COVID-19 period

The LifeWise Centre team are still able to provide psychological services in both our offices in Maitland and Warners Bay.  In addition to our regular services we are now offering telehealth services to our vulnerable or isolated clients.

You can feel confident that we are taking precautions to protect you and your family against the spread of the Virus, in particular by asking all our clients NOT to attend our offices if they or anyone in their household have any cold and/or flu symptoms.  We are taking cleanliness precautions throughout the day both for our offices and our staff.

If anyone who comes to our Centres seems unwell, our friendly staff will request that they seek suitable medical assistance and offer them telehealth services while they are unwell or isolated.

If there is any help or advice we can provide during this very difficult and often stressful time please call our offices on 49320432 and we will do our very best to provide any support available.

We are currently experiencing intermittent telephone issues.  If you are unable to contact us by phone we offer the following options:

  • Email us to admin@lifewise.com.au
  • Phone us again a little later

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
