Dr Andrew Wilkinson and Alex Wilkinson have started See Hear Speak because they want every story to be understood.
Andrew is a Clinical Psychologist and Alex is a Speech Pathologist. They are passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of children, young people and families.
The vision of See Hear Speak is to meet that end through understanding every client story and tailoring the right knowledge and clinical experience to achieve change. Our practice is evidence based and practical, we simply want to provide good care for you from beginning to end.
Wedged between Newcastle and Lake Macquarie in the humming suburb of Lambton, See Hear Speak is now open and providing clinical psychology assessment, treatment and workshops for children, young people and families.
Dr Andrew Wilkinson is our See Hear Speak Director and Clinical Psychologist who specialises in working with children, young people and families. After completing a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Bachelor of Psychology (Honours), Andrew has been the leader of a clinical team providing psychology services for children, young people and families. He has also consulted to the NSW government (Family and Community Services) on disability service delivery and child protection.
Andrew has a particular interest in working with children and young people from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background. He has now been working locally in Newcastle for a number of years and prior to this, worked rurally in North West NSW providing psychological assessment, treatment and workshops with children, young people and adults.
He loves being a husband and father and taking care of a cheeky one year old. Starting life on a farm in North West NSW, it’s no surprise he enjoys getting outdoors and when he can, getting away from the hustle of city life with his family.
Adrian has over 11 years’ experience helping people of all ages make positive changes in their lives. Adrian has extensive experience working within the addiction rehabilitation sector and has more recently worked with disadvantaged and at risk youth.
