Welcome to Macquarie Street Psychology

Macquarie Street Psychology is a private psychology clinic located in Prahran, Melbourne. Founded by Dr. Dave Demmer and Dr. Beau Growcott with their shared interest in men’s mental health, Macquarie Street Psychology is passionate about addressing the psychological issues faced by men, as well as by members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Founded on the values of Innovation, Community, and Action, we at Macquarie Street Psychology are focused on supporting mental health at both an individual and societal level. We are adaptive, authentic and creative in our approach to psychology and support clients to address various difficulties such as depression, anxiety, stress- and adjustment-related issues, phobias, OCD, low self-esteem or motivation, relationship issues, and personality disorders.


Given the current community health concerns we ask all those who visit our clinic to follow these guidelines:

  1. If you have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or any flu-like symptoms, please do not attend your appointment in person. Please contact your treating psychologist as soon as possible and they will organise to meet via TeleHealth;
  2. Please ensure you wash and sanitize your hands when entering the premises – hand wash, hand sanitizer, and disposable paper towel are available in the common areas of the practice;
  3. We ask that any friends or family members who may support you to get to your appointment not enter the premises (unless you are under 18 years of age). If you do require a friend or family member to wait with you please let your treating psychologist know prior to the appointment;
  4. Please maintain a 1.5 metre distance from all others in the waiting room (the waiting room is currently configured to support this so please take a seat in the allocated chair positions);
  5. TeleHealth appointments are available and your treating psychologist will discuss this option with you directly.

Our practice receives regular professional cleaning and we will continue to prioritize your health and safety.
