The Lake Illawarra to Shellharbour walk. Our hidden gem!

This location is breath taking! Even if this is not your closest location we suggest you do at least one session here!

You will have the choice between a barefoot beach walk or ocean walk pathway- whichever you choose you will not be dissapointed!

There is plenty of parking, seated and undercover areas, with views of course, for those who prefer to sit back and leave the walking part out.

This is a quiet, scenic area that has it all!

Meeting point 

Here is a map of where you meet your psychologist in Shellharbour, but don’t stress, they will give you a call the day before your session just to introduce themselves and to let you know exactly where you will find them! They will also remind you of any documents that you will need to bring along to the session, but most of all, they will make you feel at ease about the exciting journey you are about to go on!

What do our Shellharbour Psychologists specialise in?

There are a number of reasons why people choose to book in with one of our Shellharbour Psychologists. At times, a friend or person close to them recommends our service as they may have had some experience with our Psychologists. At other times, they may have heard about us and know that we might be the right fit! As Walk Different offers an alternative to the clinical office and a more relaxed approach to get professional help, we are often told that sitting down in an office was not suited for our client and that they needed something more natural.
