Psychologists help empower you to get the most out of life by using their comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the brain and human behaviour. Working one-on-one with you as well as alongside your loved ones if preferred, psychologists examine the way you think, feel and behave – and how these drive your everyday life.

While psychology is highly connected to the brain and mental health, research shows that three-quarters of people who undergo psychological treatment show significant improvements in their physical health too. This means that they end up needing fewer sick days, experience less disability, and report fewer medical problems.

Our experienced psychologists undertake professional development regularly to further extend their expertise in a range of treatment methods, and many will use several types of therapy with each client. The choice of therapy type depends on the patient’s particular needs and circumstances, and will commonly include a combination of the following:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT helps people to identify and change thinking and behaviour patterns that are harmful or incorrect, replacing them with more accurate thoughts and beneficial behaviours. It can help a person focus on current problems in their life and how to solve them, by using practical tools and strategies.

Interpersonal Therapy

IPT helps people to understand underlying issues that are causing them difficulty, like unresolved grief, and relationship or work troubles. It can help people learn healthy ways to express emotions and ways to improve communication and how they relate to others.


Mindfulness training involves learning to ‘live in the moment’ and become fully aware of your environment with all of your senses — touch, sound, sight, smell and taste. There is a close focus on deep breathing, meditation, and guided imagery to reduce stress and relax the body and mind. Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to decrease stress, depression and anxiety, relieve fatigue, improve people’s ability to deal with ill health, decrease blood pressure, assist in the treatment of obesity, and help to improve a myriad of further physical illnesses.

Yes, you are welcome to include a support person to attend your appointments, and psychology sessions can also be conducted in an individual, family, couple, or group setting depending on your needs. Because family is a key part of the team that helps you get better, it is sometimes helpful for you family members to understand what you are going through, how they can manage their feelings, and what they can do to help.

No, your therapist is required to maintain confidentiality about everything said in sessions between the two of you, just like a doctor is required to keep your records private. This includes not reporting back to DVA or the NDIS about the specifics of your consultations and challenges. For your own safety, there are some exceptions to the rule when it comes to confidentiality, particularly where your life or the life of others may be at risk, but these are generally exceptional circumstances.

Talking therapy sessions with a psychologist are often used in combination with medication to treat mental health concerns. For many people, combined medication and talking psychology treatment is better than either alone, but this is best discussed with your psychology team to determine the best treatment for you.
