HELPING YOU THRIVE

 

WHY AM I HERE?

You’re here because you know things aren't quite right. You may have come to this conclusion yourself.     

Or your doctor or loved one has recommended you talk to a Psychologist. 

 

Whatever brought you here, seeking treatment is not only a sensible step to take, it's also very common. Hundreds of thousands of everyday Australians seek help from psychologists, psychiatrists, and counsellors each year. You are not alone.

Today more and more people are making their Mental Health a priority.

WHAT IS NORMAL?

There is no normal, we all face a unique set of circumstances and challenges. In the media we see the extremes - there's the perfect as portrayed in TV commercials and then on the news, we witness those in extreme crisis. 

 

The truth is most of us sit somewhere in between. Despite what we each project, everyone deals with any number of daily and long term issues. When those issues involve people's mental health, psychologists are there to help.

WHAT IS A PSYCHOLOGIST?

The goal of psychology is to study human thinking and behaviour and put that knowledge into practice, to help people, communities, and society in general to solve day-to-day problems and improve quality of life.


A psychologist is a professional trained in the science of how people think, feel, behave, and learn. Clinical psychologists are required to have a minimum of six years of university training and supervised experience, and to engage in ongoing education to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
