Raise the Bar Psychology

An educational and developmental psychology clinic

Person-centred, trauma informed and neuro-affirming educational and neurodevelopmental assessment, counselling and support

Raise the Bar Psychology is a private educational and developmental psychology clinic. We have an extensive background in neurodevelopmental and psychological assessment and intervention for children, adolescents, and adults.

Our clinic has been specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals with neurodevelopmental and learning differences.

Our History

Raise the Bar Psychology was founded in 2013 by Dr Kate Jacobs. With the addition of joint owners Hayley Anthony and Dr Shane Costello in 2020 the clinic has continued to expand and diversify. Since this time, the company has grown to become one of the largest and most respected educational and developmental psychology group practices in Victoria.

Our Vision, Values and Purpose

We are a private educational and developmental psychology clinic with expertise in educational and neurodevelopmental assessment. Our clinic has been specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals with neurodevelopmental and learning differences.

We respect and value neurodiversity and believe that best outcomes are achieved when the environment understands and caters for individual strengths and challenges. This is why our approach is to work collaboratively with individuals, families, schools, tertiary institutions and workplaces in order to recommend targeted strategies and practical adjustments and support.

Our vision is to create a centre of excellence in neurodevelopmental assessment; to support clients as they embark on those first important steps post assessment; and to provide collaborative continuity of care across the lifespan. 

In all of our activities, with all people, these values guide us:
