March 2022 COVID Update
We are pleased to announce Barrenjoey Psychology is currently open again for face-to face consultations. We will continue to provide telephone and video-conferencing consultations for those that prefer. Our psychologists can offer face-to-face appointments in the practice for fully vaccinated clients.
Our psychologists and client support team are doing what they can to ensure a COVID safe space for those needing psychological care. We expect our staff and clients to wear masks until risks for community transmission of COVID are reduced. Please inform the reception team or your psychologist what type of appointment you prefer when you book and you may book appointments online on this website.
Our psychologists at Barrenjoey Psychology on the northern beaches are trained in a range of different types of counselling and therapy. We are all able to help people struggling with anxiety, depression grief and trauma. Models of treatment we use include mindfulness based therapy, schema based therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy or CBT. Cognitive behaviour therapy is based on changing unhelpful patterns of thinking and reacting. These are evidence based therapies and this means they are scientifically proven to create positive and effective changes in mental well-being.
People can benefit from seeing a psychologist even when they are not suffering from a diagnosis or specific mental health disorder. The psychologists here will listen and collaborate with you to set your goals for change. A few sessions of strengths based treatment can be extremely effective at promoting positive and long lasting changes in your life.
We often do many things to help improve our physical well-being. Scientific evidence now shows how poor physical health is linked with mental health conditions such as anxiety, stress and depression. The team at Barrenjoey psychology can help if you want to improve your mental well being. The skills you acquire will help you to achieve personal goals and communicate better with those important people in your life.
