I’m Brad Marshall, The Unplugged Psychologist. I’m the Director of the Internet Addiction Clinic @ Kidspace where I have helped hundreds of families struggling with internet, screen and gaming addiction. I provide parents with practical and concrete strategies to manage and maintain their children’s technology diet.
Born and raised in Australia, I have been working with children, adolescents and families since 2006.
After completing my undergraduate studies at Macquarie University, I accepted a position in the U.S.A. treating children and adolescents
experiencing extreme behavioural difficulties. I then returned to Australia to
complete my Masters qualification at the University of Sydney.
Currently, I am the Principal Psychologist at Northshore Kidspace, a clinic in Chatswood in Sydney Australia. Northshore Kidspace provide mental health services to children, adolescents and young people and their families. For more information or to make a referral to me for treatment, please visit
Prior to establishing and opening Northshore Kidspace, I held positions at the University of Notre Dame Australia and in various public hospitals including Royal North Shore Hospital, Bankstown Hospital and Ryde Hospital, working with children and families as part of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service for many years,
I have always focused on working closely with parents and families. I specialise in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of children, adolescents and young adults with a wide range of psychological, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
I specialise in treatment of young people experiencing excessive internet use or ‘Internet Addiction’; and related disorders, such as gaming addiction. In my clinic, I routinely help families find a balance between healthy screen time and problematic overuse. I have made a name for myself in the media as a leading specialist in Australia on the topic of internet, screen and gaming addiction. I am also the Clinical Director of the Internet Addiction Clinic at Northshore Kidspace.
I am also an accomplished and well respected presenter and invited
guest speaker, providing professional development to teachers and health professionals, and running seminars for parents, school students and teachers. I also run seminars and workshops in the corporate space, presenting and speaking to staff about the benefits of healthy internet use at home and in the family, and to be productive and balanced when at work.
