Michael Tomek and Leah Henzen are Co-Directors of Lakeside Psychology. They both completed their training and experience in clinical psychology in the public mental health system which provided invaluable experience in the assessment and treatment of severe mental illness. However, it was their plan to work in the private system where they could provide a high quality service in a comfortable and professional environment. In 2008 Michael first started working in private practice from medical centres, and Leah in 2010. The need and demand grew over the years, and we had other psychologists work with us from medical centres.
In 2015 we saw our long-term goal finally come to fruition and opened up our new, stand-alone clinic in Lakeside, Pakenham. We started with three psychologists and have grown to six psychologists and two administration staff. We are very proud of our journey and achievements, and believe that our success has come from consistently providing a highly professional and effective service.
