As the holiday season draws closer we would like to reflect back over a busy 2016, with many wonderful highlights. We welcomed new Psychologists, gorgeous therapy dog – in training Fudge and we have been able to share a variety of interesting stories relating to Mullum Road Clinic in Ringwood.
We enjoy sharing our news and updates and we are pleased to continue being involved with the local community. Thank you to our clients for being part of Mullum Road Clinic in 2017.

We will be closing from Friday December the 23rd at 6pm and reopening on Tuesday the 3rd January at 9am.

We wish everyone a happy holiday season, but realise that it can be a challenging time too. If you are needing to contact any support services during this time, you can look some up on the bottom of our website Links page.
Our Instagram galleries will still be posting during the holidays, if you wish to keep up to date with our four legged friends (therapy dogs) during the holiday season.
Christmas Get Together
This year our annual Christmas get together was in the beautiful suburb of Warrandyte, at Round About Cafe. We enjoyed having the venue for Mullum Road Clinic and musicians Jack & Harry entertained us again this year. It was a great opportunity for some of our new Psychologists, Counsellors and helpful staff to all come together and enjoy time out. Graham from Capt’n Dog Wash attended again this year too.
Capt’n Dogwash is a mobile dog grooming salon based in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. If you would like more information Capt’n Dogwash can be found on facebook.
