Meet Barb

Barb Kelly is a a child psychologist, experienced in providing psychological therapy to children and young people with developmental concerns and complex mental health issues.

I am particularly passionate about the following areas:

  • Mood issues such as anxiety and depression
  • Neurodiversity including Autism
  • ADHD
  • Tourette’s/Tics (CBiT trained)
  • Selective Mutism
  • Eating and Feeding issues such as Avoidant Restricted Feeding Disorder (ARFID)

"In some ways, I am a bit like a like a teacher"

Children who come to see me often need to learn something new. Some children need to learn how to fight anxiety or depression, others need to learn skills to make friends or solve social problems. I like to tell children that as a Psychologist I am an expert in behaviour.

To support children I believe in working with a child’s system- this means I work with whole families and love to get out into a child’s community. Video conferencing, home and school visits allow this to support children.

Along with completing a Clinical Master’s in Psychology, I am committed to ensuring creative, evidenced based practice such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT).

I am a supervisor and have also worked as a lecturer and am passionate about educating the community and love training.

I use innovative technology to share my knowledge, using video conferencing for therapy, facilitating live webinars and recorded training.

Along with mood issues like anxiety and depression, I have experience working with children with complex presentations, including:

  • Developmental concerns
  • OCD
  • Autism
  • Eating and feeding issues
  • Tourette’s and tics, and
  • School refusal behaviours

I have a youtube channel and like

to tell kids I am a ‘youtuber’!

I also love all things geekery, so look out for references around the office to Harry Potter, Star Wars, Transformers and all things plush (squishmellows are the best!).

Awkward Stuff (Fees)

Barb Kelly_Teacups 2

The fee for an initial therapy appointment is $300. The standard fee for any appointment after the first is $200. Payment on the day is required. Medicare rebates are available for patients with a mental health care plan, although these rebates do not cover the full cost of the appointment.

Unfortunately, due to rising costs and the freeze on Medicare rebates, this practice is not able to bulk bill.

NDIS funding is available to self-funded and planner managed patients only.

Training and supervision fees are available on request.

Service Location

The office is located just a short drive from Toowoomba at Suite 5, 10498 New England Highway, Highfields, Q. 4352 (Jacaranda Manor, across the road from the Chocolate Cottage.).

You can wait outside. If you are early, you may want to visit the lovely coffee shops nearby.

We also offer appointments via videoconferencing.

In addition to servicing Toowoomba and the surrounding area, I also provide psychological therapy, supervision and training via online video-conferencing.

I also train psychologists on using video-videoconferencing. Speak to me about using flexible modes of delivery to meet your needs.
