Welcome to Coastal Minds

Behaviour Support and Therapeutic Services for children, adolescents, and their families

Who I am What I do

Hello and Welcome

Coastal Minds is a psychology practice in Caloundra offering interventions for children, adolescents and their families.

Psychologist Ana Foix, holds full registration with the Psychology Board of Australia (AHPRA), is an associate member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), and is registered to provide services under Medicare schemes. Ana is a panel provider for the early intervention programs Helping Children with Autism and Better Start for Children with a Disability.

Here at Coastal Minds we have a special interest in positive behaviour support. We also provide therapeutic interventions utilising evidence-based methods such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).

We practise in a family-inclusive manner with a client-centered approach.

It’s a time to focus on abilities, not disabilities.
