Introducing the Cancer Wellbeing Centre (CWC)

It is with great excitement that we introduce the Cancer Wellbeing Centre (CWC), an initiative of Lilley Place Clinical Psychology. The CWC is dedicated to improving the psychological wellbeing of people affected by cancer – including family and loved ones. We are committed to providing first class care that is responsive, evidence-based and targeted to the individual needs of each person.  In addition to advanced clinical training, all our psychologists receive ongoing supervision in delivering specialised psycho-oncology interventions.

CWC provides a range of services that are flexible and fit with the unique requirements of our community. Our clinic at Lilley Place in Indooroopilly Shopping Centre has disabled access and free parking up to 3 hours, and can offer extended trading hours to accommodate people with restricted availability. We are also positioned to offer home visit and outreach services for those experiencing accessibility issues, and can offer eligible regional and remote clients telehealth therapy delivery. Rebates are available with a GP referral under the Better Access Medicare scheme for face-to-face appointments as well as for telehealth consultations for people who live in certain regional areas.   

Throughout the year CWC will run a series of workshops, information sessions and group programs on a variety of topics such as stress management, mindfulness, and relationship support. Information regarding these events will be regularly updated on our website.

Our experienced and specialised team is overseen by clinic director Dr Peta Lilley, and comprises Samantha Clutton (Client Services Manager), Lee Cubis and Ellie Armstrong. For further information on how we can be of assistance to you or your loved ones, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to working within our community, to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer.
