While our staff can work with a wide range of mental health issues including anxiety and depression, we focus on a few areas in which we have substantial experience
Everyone’s experience of trauma is unique, however in essence it is an emotional response to a distressing event, such as a natural disaster, an accident, abuse, or violence. The experience of trauma can be overwhelming and can leave you feeling helpless and afraid.
Trauma can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or background. It is important to seek help to process the experience, manage symptoms, and improve your quality of life.
The treatment of trauma can involve a range of different approaches, and will vary depending on your needs and the nature of the trauma.
Overall, effective treatment for trauma involves a comprehensive and personalised approach that takes into account your unique needs and experiences.
Carers often need support to help them manage the demands of their caregiving role and maintain their own mental and emotional well-being. In our experience, we have found that carers minimise their own needs and often don’t recognise the impact of being a carer on their mental and physical health.
Chronic Health Conditions
We understand the impact of chronic health conditions on mental health and well-being. That’s why we offer compassionate, personalised care to help you manage your chronic health conditions and improve your overall well-being.
Our practice is committed to promoting holistic health and empowering you to live your best life in spite of your health conditions.
We have worked with thousands of older adults since 2014, helping them to improve their mental health and wellbeing
Our practice is committed to promoting healthy ageing and empowering older adults to maintain their independence and quality of life.
Older adults have unique needs encompassing all of the concerns of younger adults as well as facing issues around ageing, health, cognitive changes and chronic pain. While adjustment issues and grief and loss are major needs, we also recognise that supporting older adults to find their own strengths and build their resilience is a major contributor to improving wellbeing.
Our practice has significant experience in helping individuals navigate the challenges of major life transitions and changes. Our psychologists are dedicated to providing compassionate, personalised care to help you overcome obstacles and thrive in new situations. We understand the complexities of adjustment, and we are here to support you as you adapt to new challenges and opportunities.
What are adjustment issues?
Adjustment issues refer to difficulties that arise when we face significant changes or challenges in our lives. These types of changes can be overwhelming and can lead to symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. Some examples of situations that can lead to adjustment issues include:
- Moving to a new city or country
- Starting a new job or career
- Changing schools or universities
- Dealing with a medical diagnosis
- Losing a loved one
- Going through a divorce or separation
- Losing a job
- Coping with a chronic health condition
