The PsychPhys® program was founded to be different from the rest and to bridge the gap that existed between psychology and exercise related supports, with one goal in mind: To improve the lives of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disabilities, and/or Mental Health Disorders.

PsychPhys® is a dualdisciplinary program that utilises the combined approach of psychology- and exercise-based supports to ensure we are able to approach helping our client’s holistically. As human’s are not and will never be black or white, this allows us to take into consideration a person’s physical, mental and emotional health and well-being during the process.

Since its inception at South Pacific Health Clubs Williamstown in January; what started as an idea has continued to grow as the PsychPhys® program has begun its process of branching out, having recently opened up shop in Goodlife Health Clubs in Knox and Preston. With new sites has come an expansion to the PsychPhys® team – new faces who are just as eager to help and support those who show interest in our program.

While several changes have taken place since the start of the year, those of us at PsychPhys® have continued to pride ourselves on providing an environment where people of all ages and abilities can feel safe attending and comfortable being in. This is further reflected by the values that form the foundation by which we work on and promote on a daily basis:

  • Acceptance
  • Non-Judgemental
  • Kindness
  • Independence
  • Adaptability

For individuals seeking out something new or for those seeking additional support – we welcome you with open arms and a smile. Our tailored programs are designed to try and best fit what are person may need combined with what a person may want so that we can help facilitate degrees of autonomy and independence early on.
