About Us

The Gut Centre

Congratulations on taking the first step towards improving your gut health and overall quality of life. At the Gut Centre, we are psychologists and hypnotherapists who are the first and leading experts to provide mind and gut psychological treatment in Australia. We look forward to the opportunity of helping you reduce your gut symptoms and increasing your feeling of health and wellbeing.

We provide the latest researched evidence-based treatment for IBS and a wide range of other gastrointestinal disorders. We treat adults, adolescents and children as young as young as 4 years old. We are currently able to offer online appointments to all patients AUSTRALIA WIDE (via Zoom) with medicare and private health rebates available.

With a specific commitment in treating children, we utilise a collaborative approach where we liaise with parents, GP’s, paediatricians, gastroenterologists and school counsellors to provide your child with the highest level of multi-disciplinary and professional expertise. We have a dedicated child psychologist on our team, along with other psychologists who consult to both adults and children. There is nothing worse that seeing our kids experience the stress, discomfort and often school absenteeism that gut symptoms can cause, so we are completely committed to assisting your little one to improve their gut health conditions and ultimately, get the spring back into their step!
