We are trained professionals to help you COPE.
COPE is a multi-disciplinary practice providing mental health services to our clinic in West Perth and outreach in the Perth Metropolitan region. COPE is a family run business managed by the founder and director Dr Hugo Gonzales. COPE’s values, mission and approach are grounded on the founding director’s values of empathy, compassion and making a difference in the lives of others. This is reinforced by COPE’s family governance approach and a strong connection to the people who form part of COPE – our clients, their families, staff, and the local community. Our wealth of experience enables us to offer effective, individualised, and specialised mental health care.
COPE’s vision is to provide the highest level of psychological and mental health care that extends beyond the alleviation of symptoms. We seek to reduce emotional suffering and enhance the well-being of individuals, families, and society using psychoanalytic psychotherapy, as a clinical approach, and a widely applicable and evolving way of understanding human experience to create lasting change. Our comprehensive approach to mental health and well-being considers all aspects of a person’s life and experiences. We are hoping not to only address symptoms of mental health issues but also the individual’s physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. Our holistic approach acknowledges developmental and relational issues. We genuinely believe that physical health, emotional well-being, social support, spiritual and existential needs, lifestyle factors, cultural sensitivity, early interventions, preventive and promotive measures, collaborative care and patient centred care are central for adjustment and functioning.
