Rise Up Psychology

Rise Up Psychology specializes in completing child assessments for people between the ages of 5 and 16.

Cognitive assessments (or intelligence tests) are used to measure a person’s general thinking and reasoning abilities (also known as IQ- intelligence quotient). The determination of how well one learns, is based on their level of general thinking and reasoning abilities. At Rise Up Psychology, the main purpose of conducting cognitive assessments is to identify if a person may have an intellectual disability, learning difficulty or if they are gifted.

Rise Up Psychology was opened because of a high demand for children requiring psychometric assessment to help identify developmental challenges and pave the way to accessing relevant supports.

During Marama’s time working in schools, she developed a strong understanding of the importance of early identification of intellectual, emotional, and social disorders, as well as early intervention, for giving children the best chances to successfully navigate the world we live in. At Rise Up Psychology, Marama uses her prior knowledge and experience to provide early identification of intellectual difficulties and disorders as well as offer specific recommendations for children and their families.

Marama has two young children of her own and understands the everyday challenges that parents face to raise healthy and happy children. Together with her experience as a mother and psychologist, she aims to offer compassion to the families who seek her support and walk beside them in their unique journeys with their loved ones.
Marama currently holds general psychologist registration with AHPRA and an associate membership with the Australian Psychological Society (APS).
