The 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 our psychologists 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 do not need to have a diagnosis or mental health disorder to benefit from seeing a psychologist. The psychologists here will listen and collaborate with you to set goals for change that are important for you. 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. Barrenjoey Psychologists can help if you want to improve your mental well being. The skills you acquire will assist you to achieve personal goals and communicate better with those important people in your life.
