What is Psychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of mind, how it works, and how it affects emotions and behaviour. A Psychologist can help you to understand, prevent, and alleviate psychologically caused distress or dysfunction, and promote well-being and personal development.

Types of therapy / methods we use:

There are many types of psychological interventions that may benefit clients. A psychologist has a minimum of 6 years training to allow them to provide evidence-based therapies and solutions that will meet an individual client’s needs.

There is no “one” therapy that will suit everyone, and your psychologist will spend time with you to determine the best treatment option for your particular issue/s.

Some the therapies we may use are:


Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) | more info


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) | more info


Neuro – Cognitive Approaches (re-wiring the brain) | more info
