How our Psychologists can help
Your mental health is one of the most important factors affecting the quality of your life, and seeking support from a psychologist is just one more way to look after your emotional and mental wellbeing. However, many people experience unnecessary distress because they delay seeking professional support.
Even minor mental health problems may affect everyday activities such that you may struggle to function – across a number of areas of life. With good mental health you can manage every-day events, face the challenges life throws at you, work towards the goals that are important to you, and function effectively in the way you want.
A Psychologist can help if:
- You feel stuck – have tried to make changes but can’t make any real or lasting progress
- You are often stressed, worried or anxious and this interferes with your enjoyment of life
- You often find yourself procrastinating, and avoiding doing those hard things that you would otherwise really want to get done
- You struggle to find pleasure and find it hard to get motivated
- You want to improve the quality of your romantic relationship
- You’re in a relationship that is suffering from a loss of trust, feelings of frustration, repeated arguments or a lack of intimacy
- You lack self-confidence and this stops you from doing the things you want
- Your life does not have the balance you want it to
- You’re struggling being a parent and find it hard to deal with your child or teenager’s behaviour
- You want to build confidence in your career
So what's holding you back? Let us help you learn better ways to effectively manage the issues that get in the way of your pursuits.
