About Marsden Psychology

With Aristotle’s guiding maxim in mind, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”, Dr Nick Marsden established Marsden Clinical Psychology in 2013 as a holistic, diverse and community-based mental health service, in the heart of the Illawarra region. 

Today, Marsden Psychology is a dedicated team of over 20 experts and support staff who have been working in the field of psychological and neuropsychological services for over 20 years. Focused on our local community and its constant evolving needs, our approach has always been to research problems within the community, assess individual needs and develop action-oriented community-based programs, while taking up the challenge of keeping up to date with the best practices, assessment tools and latest discoveries in the field. 

Because we value and respect the needs of our community and actively seek feedback on our services, we have recently made some changes at Marsden Psychology. We have taken steps to move toward two specialised mental health clinics: the Kids Clinic, and the Stress and Trauma Centre. 

Both are located in the health hub of Corrimal, a central location for those in both the northern and southern suburbs of the Illawarra, and within reach of Campbelltown and Sutherland Shire.

We have taken steps to move toward two specialised mental health clinics.

Kids Clinic

Kids Clinic

The Kids Clinic focuses on child development and mental health. We have a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals with expertise in child development and the collaboration allows for a more comprehensive for children.

Stress + Trauma Clinic

Stress + Trauma Clinic

Our Stress and Trauma Centre focuses on adolescent and adult mental health and wellbeing. It was born from the idea that many of our mental health concerns are stress related, and quite often, past traumas have played a role in the ongoing mental health problems that we experience.

Our Approach


Compassionate thoughts. Compassionate words. Compassionate heart. 

Compassion is an essential aspect of wellbeing. There are many wonderful ways to cultivate compassion. At Marsden Psychology, we aim to create a safe and caring space for the community, guided by our clinical training and experience. 

Many people enter therapy with a specific goal they wish to achieve. That’s why we actively seek honest feedback from our clients, so that we can tailor our approach and make necessary adjustments to make treatment more effective. If something is not working, we can help you find alternative solutions – a different therapy, therapist or service, for example. Your happiness is our ultimate goal. 

We want to meet you where you are now and celebrate your differences.

Marsden Psychology would like to acknowledging the traditional custodians of the land and pay our respect to their Elders past and present. We also acknowledge our gratitude that we share this land today, our sorrow for some of the costs of that sharing, and our hope and belief that we can move to place of equity, justice and partnership together.


Work with us

We are always on the lookout for the right people to join our team: clinical/general psychologists, neuropsychologists, family therapists, allied health, therapy assistants and administrative/management support staff.


Training and Supervision

Training and supervising other psychologists and mental health professionals is something that our senior psychologists at Marsden Psychology take a lot of pleasure in. We feel grateful that we have the opportunity to support our colleagues and help them on their journey to become better clinicians.
