What is Podiatry?


Podiatry deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. The conditions podiatrists treat include those resulting from bone and joint disorders such as arthritis and soft-tissue and muscular pathologies, as well as neurological and circulatory disease. Podiatrists are also able to diagnose and treat any complications of the above which affect the lower limb, including skin and nail disorders, corns, calluses and ingrown toenails. Foot injuries and infections gained through sport or other activities are also diagnosed and treated by podiatrists.

External referrals are welcome.

Our podiatrist, Kaminthia is available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday


Psychology services refer to a range of mental health and well-being support provided by qualified and registered psychologists. These professionals offer assessment, therapy, counselling, and interventions to individuals, couples, families, and groups to address a wide spectrum of psychological and emotional issues. Psychology services encompass diverse areas, including clinical psychology for the treatment of mental disorders, counselling psychology for personal and emotional challenges, educational and developmental psychology for children and adolescents, and organisational psychology for workplace issues. Psychologists in Australia adhere to ethical guidelines and evidence-based practices to help clients improve their mental health, cope with life’s challenges, and enhance their overall psychological well-being.

Psychology services can assist with concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship problems, trauma, and personal development. 

To access psychology services, you require a referral from your GP. At Forest Hill Family Clinic we have a number of psychologists who could assist you.
