Our Psychology Services Cover

Anxiety and Worry

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition to impact Australians. Anxiety can cause physiological symptoms that include a racing heart, shortness of breath, dizziness, trembling, and a feeling of ‘butterflies in the stomach'. When anxiety and worry have an impact on daily living and relationships, it’s best to seek professional treatment.

Anxiety and worry are highly treatable, and our clients notice a significant improvement when they receive psychology support and counselling services from our psychologists who use a range of evidence-based psychology services.

Our psychologists:

  • Provide the tools for clients to cope with the physical and psychological symptoms now and into the future.
  • Tailor their psychology service to ensure every individual is matched to the most appropriate therapy.
  • Are available for telehealth or face-to-face sessions.

Depression and Low Mood

Just like anxiety, depression, and low mood are common among Australians. The symptoms of depression include feelings of sadness, anger, a loss of interest or enjoyment in usual activities, and sleep disturbances. When a person is struggling to cope with depression, sadness, or low mood, their physical and mental health can be affected.

Our qualified psychologists provide mental health treatment to help clients overcome depression and prevent future episodes. The sessions teach clients strategies to cope with negative thoughts and process difficult experiences.

Our psychologists:

  • Offer a range of therapies as part of our psychology services to help clients. 
  • Have the experience to choose the most beneficial therapy.
  • Form a trusting relationship with their client.

Grief and Loss

The grief of losing a family member or close friend can have a devastating impact. Other life events such as a relationship breakdown, retrenchment, the birth of a child with a disability, or serious illness can also cause grief. Grief can include the feeling of overwhelming sadness as well as shock, denial, and anger. Everyone deals with grief differently. Grief can cause people to act differently, impact physical health or cause a person to question their spiritual beliefs.

Some individuals suffer from complex grief where they struggle to live with the loss. Rather than gradually thinking more positively, they’re stuck in a sorrowful place. Our psychologists can provide counselling and psychology services to help clients move beyond this place and live a more positive life.

Our psychologists:

  • Provide an empathetic space to support individuals coping with loss as part of our psychology services.

Relationship breakdown is one of life’s most stressful events. Some people feel it’s like losing a family member and they grieve for the life they’ve lost. It’s common for an individual to seek psychology support to help cope with this period of major change. Substance abuse, financial difficulties, behavioural conditions, and illness can cause family problems. Feelings of anger, stress, depression, and unmet needs can arise during times of problems within a family.

Chronic stress is experienced long-term without periods of relief. Multiple stressors can cause the stress to be cumulative. Unhealthy high levels of stress can have physiological and psychological impacts. Physical symptoms can include heart palpitations, poor sleep, an upset stomach, headaches, and high blood pressure to name a few.

The psychological symptoms can include anxiety, depression, poor concentration, and feeling teary or overwhelmed. Our psychologists can provide counselling to help clients pinpoint the cause of their stress and teach them stress management techniques.

When the injury is severe and results in a disability, it can be accompanied by a range of challenges including pain, loss of independence, social and financial issues, and impacts on family and friends. The impact of the disability can cause mental health issues for a person dealing with a disability and their support network.

Lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex, and queer people are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and suicidal thoughts than heterosexual people. Stigma and discrimination, family disapproval, or social rejection are some of the reasons why LGBTQIA+ people are more likely to suffer from poor mental health.

Our psychologists provide counselling and psychological services to help clients discover the cause of their stress or anxiety. A coach helps clarify goals and how to achieve them.

The first session is a health screening and discussion of goals while the subsequent sessions discuss strategies and action plans to support behaviour change. Discussion topics will relate to a client’s goals and issues they may be experiencing. The final session will be a review of the goals achieved and how to maintain progress.
