Psychology Services

Care is tailored to you as an individual

Assessment during initial consultation leads to a treatment plan that best meet individual needs and differences in clients.

Therapy Approaches

Therapy approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) are utilised in the clinic as they have been evaluated and their utility shown in clinical research trials.

What happens when I see a Psychologist?

The first session typtically involves assessing what your expectations are, provision of information  to assist  understanding of your concerns, and the areas of life which are impacted upon.

Some collection of information by  psychological questionnaires is likely to be involved to help develop a clear understanding of your individual needs, and to lead to an individual treatment plan. Please bring your reading glasses if needed for reading and writing. A proposed treatment plan will then be discussed with ySesou.

How long are the sessions? 

Appointments can generally be expected to be at least 55 minutes in duration. However, depending on the nature of the referral, some initial sessions may take longer. If a period longer than 55 minutes is expected for collection of information and understanding of the issues involved, you will be advised before the consultation.

With some referrals a report will need to be prepared from information arising from your initial consultation, and sent to your referral source, e.g., an insurance company, so that treatment sessions can be approved.

What happens in the sessions?

Treatment sessions  include explamation of  the type of therapy and skills training that you will be introduced to, and will practise, in clinical sessions. Practice of relevant skills takes place initially in sessions. Typically, after each session, some homework practice of skills  is suggested. This may include reading or  listening to resource material, or recording information for use in your next session. This approach is aimed to help you make the transition from practice of self-regulation strategies in the clinic to use of them in day life.
