Susan G Colmer, Counselling Psychologist has had a small private practice in Shepparton since 1997. Twenty years later, Goulburn Valley Developmental Clinic was established, out of two rooms in the Greater Shepparton Business Centre (GSBC). In July 2018, we began operations as GV Developmental Clinic Pty Ltd, with Susan as one of its Directors.
GVDC was born from the perceived need to cater locally for people of all ages who have developmental and associated mental health needs for assessment and/or ongoing support from a psychologist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and/or sandplay therapist. 'No need to travel to Melbourne' is our motto.
We work in collaboration with referring GPs, Paediatricians and Psychiatrists, be they located here in Greater Shepparton or in Melbourne. We hope to have a consultant paediatrician and/or psychiatrist based in our clinic.
In October 2018, we welcomed Sacha Finlayson as our Practice Manager and we are looking forward to recruiting additional members to our clinical team.
In December 2018 we moved into our current building where, for the first time, we have a few rooms to work from. Our waiting area and consulting rooms are child-friendly and our tea room is open to families.
In 2019 we continue to provide information, support and assessment and treatment services to individuals, families, schools and agencies/organisations, here in the Goulburn Valley.
Please call or email us if you have any questions about our services.
