Okey Dokey Childhood Psychology is owned and run by Raelene Dundon (Principal Psychologist and Director) and her husband, Andrew Tompkins (Practice Manager).
Starting out in 2011 with Raelene as the sole practitioner, Andrew and Raelene had a vision to create an allied health practice that could be a one stop shop for families, providing expert psychology, speech pathology and occupational therapy services to children and adolescents in a supportive and family friendly environment. An essential part of this vision was Raelene’s philosophy of providing family-centred support and therapy tailored to the individual needs of the child and family, with a focus on respecting every child’s autonomy, and delivered with compassion and creativity.
To bring their vision to life, Andrew and Raelene have carefully gathered a team of clinicians and admin staff who share their passion for providing high quality care to children and families, growing Okey Dokey Childhood Psychology to become one of the largest allied health practices in Melbourne which is exclusively dedicated to working with children.
Okey Dokey Childhood Psychology employs an experienced team of Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, and Occupational Therapists, as well as a dedicated and friendly administration team, to meet the needs of families. The practice operates from two buildings in Bayswater with over 26 individual consulting rooms, several group rooms and a dedicated area for assessment and observation.
Clinicians can assist children with a range of presenting issues including anxiety, depression, emotional regulation difficulties, behaviour concerns, fine and gross motor delays, sensory processing difficulties, expressive and receptive language delays, articulation problems, social skills difficulties and learning disorders. The practice is also well known for supporting Autistic children and adolescents.
In addition to individual therapy, Okey Dokey Childhood Psychology offers a range of other services including regular seminars for parents and professionals on a range of topics, and group programs for children throughout the calendar year.
Okey Dokey Childhood Psychology is proud to provide the highest quality child and adolescent therapy services to our clients, their families and the community, supporting every individual to be empowered to reach their fullest potential.
