How a psychologist can help

In simple terms, as a psychologist I guide you toward behaviours and strategies that will help provide solutions to your problems. There are a myriad of ways I do this, and my approach is different for each person because there is no one-size-fits-all solution. You are unique, that’s why you need a unique approach.

Part of this process involves assessing you, diagnosing a mental health condition (if there is one) and providing psychological treatment by equipping you with tools, techniques and strategies.

Regardless of whether you perceive your problems to be big or small – it’s your right to lead a happy and fulfilled life. There’s no need to ‘settle’ on feeling a certain way.

Life can improve. And it does improve for many people who see a psychologist.

Frequently Asked Questions about psychological counselling

Yes. Your feelings are understandable though.

Sometimes clients are reluctant to see a psychologist because they have been experiencing a whole range of issues over years, sometimes a lifetime. The problems seem overwhelming and insurmountable, and that feeling stops them from getting help. They feel even the psychologist won’t know where to start!

Rest assured, that’s not the case.

I know exactly the questions to ask in order to help commence the conversation. We don’t have to start at the beginning, we just have to start. Leave the process to me because I know what I’m doing, and I know how to help you. We’ll travel the journey together.

That’s a good question. The answer is, it depends on the circumstances. Some clients see me for 1 – 6 sessions, others choose to see me for more.

I use a range of psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Schema Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
