We're excited to announce that Cliniko is now a strategic partner of the Australian Psychological Society (APS).

The APS has over 24,000 members and a shining reputation for supporting psychologists through advocacy, education, and professional support.

We couldn't be happier about this new partnership, and we’re proud to continue doing all we can to support psychologists in Australia and around the world.

Why has the APS partnered with Cliniko?

Australian psychologists have been using Cliniko for nearly ten years, so we knew we had a tool that could help them manage and grow their businesses. But it feels great to receive this designation and to be partnered with such a well-respected organisation like the APS.

Let's take a look at some of the reasons why the APS says Cliniko is a smart choice for psychologists.

Cliniko is easy to use.

Our job is to make your work easier. That’s why every feature is simple to use and intuitively designed to keep your energy and attention right where it belongs—on your clients.

And when we release an update or something new (which happens pretty often), we make sure it looks and operates, just like the rest of Cliniko. That way, you can dive right in, and it will feel like you’ve been using it for years.

Run your business from anywhere, on any device.

Cliniko is a web-based platform. That means there’s nothing for you to download, and you don’t have to save anything on your computer. From the moment you create your account, all your business info and patient data is safely stored ‘in the cloud’ (a.k.a our ultra-secure servers).

This makes it easy for you to work from any location. So long as you have an Internet connection, you can manage every part of your Cliniko account from your computer, smartphone, or tablet—including telehealth.

Find the solutions to your everyday problems—all on one platform.

Running a psychology practice is hard work. You get hit with new challenges all the time, and you need a system that makes your day-to-day tasks more manageable. Here’s a peek at some of the ways the APS thinks Clinko is especially helpful for psychologists.

Appointment diary

Cliniko’s appointment calendar is clear, straightforward, and stocked with everything you need to manage your schedule. Designed with flexible views, online bookings, repeat appointments, and more, you can save your energy for helping your clients, not just booking them.

Session notes and record-keeping

Cliniko’s notes are fully customisable and securely stored in the cloud. You can custom-build your own templates, easily search to find what you need, and flag incomplete items to be finished later. And our drag-and-drop enabling makes it quick-and-easy to upload files to your clients’ records.

Digital forms and signatures

Create digital client forms customised to meet any need, like intake documents, policy agreements, and pre-appointment questionnaires. Your clients can receive and submit their forms online from any device and include their digital signature. Their responses will be automatically saved within their file in your Cliniko account.

Referral source tracking

Grow your business faster by keeping tabs on how new clients discover your practice. By tracking your referral sources, you can pinpoint which advertising channels are working best for you—including word of mouth—and determine which efforts you should continue and which ones aren’t worth pursuing.


Manage your invoices, payments, expenses, taxes, and more with Cliniko’s easy-to-use financial tools. And rest easy knowing all your transactions are seamlessly synced with your client profiles, stored communication, and appointment history.

You can process Medicare and HICAPS claims directly within your Cliniko account. It's all handled seamlessly, and there's no payment terminal required.

And, if you allow your clients to book their own appointments online, you can also collect payment at the time of booking. An invoice will be automatically created, marked as paid, and saved in your client’s file.


Enjoy the freedom to care for your clients from any location. With our integrated telehealth software, you can use any device to hold remote consultations with individuals or groups through a secure, encrypted, high-quality video and audio connection.

What does this partnership mean for you?

If your psychology practice is already using Cliniko, this partnership confirms that you made the right software choice for your practice. (But hopefully, you were already thinking that.)

The APS doesn't decide to partner with just any company who asks. For the sake of their reputation and their members, there's a lot of close scrutiny in the approval process.

We're thrilled to have earned this designation. It stands as proof of our ongoing commitment to supporting psychologists everywhere, and it provides a new pathway for us to ensure that Cliniko is always meeting your needs.
