Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried…but you’ve actually been planted" ― Christine Caine

We know life can be stressful. Work, relationships, family challenges and traumatic life events can cause mental and emotional strain. If left unchecked, more serious mental health issues can arise.

 

In Australia, almost 50% of us will experience a mental health condition in our lifetime(1). You are most definitely not alone. 

 

If your mind is keeping you from living a joyful and purposeful life, you might want to consider individual therapy with a psychologist. We offer both comprehensive assessment and psychological therapy (i.e. treatment) services designed to help you find your spark again.

We offer holistic, evidence-based assessment and psychological therapy options for people experiencing a range of mental health issues (e.g. Anxiety, Depression, Trauma/PTSD, ADHD, ASD etc.). 

 

If you’re unsure what’s happening for you but know something ‘isn’t right’, we can help you to clarify the picture so you can make more sense of what might be making you feel ‘not quite like yourself’. 

Our psychologists are also well trained in helping people to navigate life’s curveballs (e.g. relationship breakdowns, major life changes, work stress).

You may have noticed some changes in your mood, maybe you’re not enjoying things as much as you used to, are more irritable, or you’ve started to withdraw from friends or loved ones. 

 

Increased stress, anxiety, struggles with cognitive difficulties (e.g. difficulties concentrating, forgetfulness, slowed thinking) are also signs you may need more specialised support, especially if you’re finding it harder to cope with day-to-day activities. 

 

Don’t wait until you feel like you’re drowning before you seek help. The research tells us speaking to someone sooner rather than later leads to better outcomes in a shorter amount of time (2).

We provide strengths-focused, neuroscience informed, holistic psychology services.

We believe our approach strikes a balance between identifying difficulties to support AND highlighting strengths to build upon. We acknowledge that you are the expert of your life. 

We are a team of down-to-earth clinicians who try NOT to speak like walking textbooks. However, we are trained in a range of evidence-based modalities, such as: 

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Mindfulness Integrated therapies
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT)
  • Family Systems Therapy
  • Maudsley Family-Based Therapy for Anorexia Nervosa
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy 
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Positive Psychology
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy

We keep our mission simple: 

    1. Aim to make lives better
    2. Help people (big and small) move beyond limitations

Well, you’ve come to the right place! Our team are all very experienced in working with a spectrum of presenting difficulties. All our psychologists have worked in the public mental health, community NGO and/or disability service systems. We know it takes some serious teamwork to help people with higher support needs and are committed to working collaboratively to get the best outcome possible for you.

 

We get that the experience of services can be quite different for individuals in this space and do our best to provide continuity of care, throughout what we know is a unique journey.
