Au Revoir Mrs Jen Riches and Net Psychology

PartridgeGP is heading into the new financial year with plenty of plans! We are absolutely committed to helping our patients, our community, and the doctors and allied health professionals we serve. We saw in 2020 that the only constant was change – and so it is in 2021. Firstly, we are saying au revoir to the awesome Mrs Jen Riches of Net Psychology, whose partner has been promoted interstate. We, and our patients, have really appreciated Jen’s care, professional skill, and great energy. We are sad to see her move on, but will watch her career with interest – she is still available online and you can contact her here for telehealth!

What did Jen have to say about her time at PartridgeGP?

“I’m Jen and I’m here to talk about working with PartridgeGP. I’ve worked with them for a few months now as a psychologist and they have provided me with a supportive and professional working environment to help me provide the best of care to my patients. The culture at PartridgeGP is just exceptional. I am excited to come to work each day and value the care that the PartridgeGP team provide me with. The GPs, allied health staff and administrative teams are all friendly and genuine. It is a great place to work. PartridgeGP is growing and would love more awesome providers so touch base with Dr Nick Tellis on 82953200 and say Jen sent you.”

Jen is a registered psychologist experienced in providing services to adolescents and adults. She has worked with individuals experiencing a range of life issues such as relationship and family breakdowns, bullying, unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, grief and loss, social isolation and legal issues. She works with people experiencing a range of complex mental health issues including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and psychosis. She has experience in providing psychology services to clients through secure online video conferencing and face to face. Aside from her private practice experience Jen has worked at Headspace, Lifeline, and MATES in Construction. Jen is passionate about providing professional, down to earth and practical psychology services. 

Jen draws on a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Schema Therapy. Jen brings empathy, warmth and compassion to therapy and takes an individualised approach to each client. See and hear her here!

Jen may have moved to Darwin (remember her Telehealth services!) – we still have Monika Kolta and Mark Edwards here onsite for your Psychology needs!

All of this teamwork begins with having a usual GP or General Practice central to your care. We recommend people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would). If they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. 

PartridgeGP works with you to help you make your best health decisions, and we won’t back away from being your companion, guide, advisor, and sounding board through your health journey. We pride ourselves on great communication and we’re ready to share our professional skills and knowledge with you. This is only MORE important now, in the time of a global pandemic with a new vaccine on the horizon. The way forward is clear: make your appointment with us conveniently online right here – or call our friendly reception team on 82953200.

For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.
