Quality of Life Psychology offers professional, outcome-focused services with specialist expertise in working with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples.

Our breadth of expertise means that we are able to provide assistance to our clients for a wide range of difficulties in accordance with individual interests and strengths.

We work in conjunction with medical and other allied health professionals when necessary to achieve optimal results for our clients.

Quality of Life Psychology began as a single practitioner practice in 2012, when Debra Sandford, the Principal Clinical Psychologist had a reverse 'sea change' and moved from beautiful Victor Harbor back to fabulous Adelaide. It was during a visit to Ashford Specialist Centre one day that she was invited to join the other specialists there. Since then the practice has grown and gone from strength to strength as the reputation for quality psychological therapy grows. We have recently relocated to bigger (and better) rooms at 129 Goodwood Road.

As the name of the practice suggests, the aim of all of the psychologists working at Quality of Life Psychology is to help our clients improve their "quality of life". We are passionate about helping people to achieve better mental health by using proven therapeutic models.


We make sure our therapeutic skills are kept up to date by attending professional development workshops and conferences, academic reading and other skill building seminars.
