Ranges Psychological Services developed in 2010 as an extension of Alison Hicks’ private practice in the Macedon Ranges. Her vision is to provide individuals, families and the wider community with a range of high quality mental health and related services. Our services are delivered by skilled, fully registered psychologists who provide a wide range of treatment services for every age group and major psychological issue.
We provide treatment for Adults, Adolescents, Children, Families, Couples and Groups.
The mission of Ranges Psychological Services is to promote the mental health and well-being of members of our community through the provision of individual and group psychotherapy, outreach, education, and community consultation.
We strive to provide psychological services with recognition and appreciation of each client’s individual and unique personality and we aim to create and maintain an environment that is warm and welcoming, respectful, and provides a feeling of safety.
We aspire to be a highly visible member of the broader community by being actively involved in community events and working alongside other businesses/providers in programs that benefit our community.
We also participate in ongoing needs assessment and program evaluation in order to maintain the quality and relevance of our services.
Authenticity – We value the right of all people to be who they truly are, to be allowed to make mistakes, to fall down and pick themselves up, to be allowed “not to know” – to be Human
Responsibility – We value each person being accountable for their actions. We view responsibility as doing what needs to be done to take care of yourself, your family, your friends and the greater community. Being responsible means that others can rely on you, that you follow through on your commitments
Community -We promote meaningful relationships among people by engaging, stimulating, and sustaining them.
Excellence – We strive to embody the highest standards in order to contribute to the greater good.
Learning – We promote the development of knowledge, skills and experience to enhance personal growth in mind, body, and spirit
Practical -We understand the importance of achieving results in a timely and cost effective manner and believe that change only comes from taking committed action. As such we see the collaboration of counsellor and client as essential in our work not just in the session but between sessions.
