Who Are We?

about the psych professionals

Our Story

The Psych Professionals (Capalaba) – a group psychology private practice – was established in 2010 by our Clinical Director, Gerda Muller, consisting of only two team members. Since then it has grown with leaps and bounds to now include a team of ten (4 staff and 6 clinicians).

Following migration from South Africa in 2005 and following extensive experience obtained working across a variety of settings (including public, private and community-based) Gerda Muller founded The Psych Professionals, YourPsychOnline.com and Private Practice Success Australia. Gerda is a Clinical Psychologist and holds Clinical Endorsement with the Psychology Board of Australia and Medicare.


The Psych Professionals vision is to help more people in better, more effective ways through actively advocating for mental health, reducing stigma and re-imagining how we, as a community, look at wellness. We want to do this in a way that inspires, awakens passion and empowers our community to put themselves and their mental health first. We want to provide a space to educate and connect people, providing them with information, strategies, inspiration and support to assist them on their journey to wellness.

Our Values

The Psych Professionals are a values driven practice. We operate with our values underpinning everything we do, our clinical practice our contact with our clients and how we interact with and respond to each other.

We are mindful of how we are feeling as individuals and the impact of our energy on the people around us. In this way, we are able to support our clients to be aware of and impact their own energy.

Stand Out

We take accountability. We recognise when we make mistakes and we fix these. We are constantly looking to grow and seek feedback from our people to make sure we are growing in the RIGHT areas.

We also recognise and highlight when our team or our clients do well. We celebrate innovation, creativity, diversity and success, stepping up to make sure each person’s experience of our service is as close to the best as it can be.

Ultimately, we do what we do, because we want our clients to live lives they love. We want our team to be in roles they love and we want to re-educate the community about mental health so there is more love and support in the world.
