Psychology sessions are based on talking through problems and using evidence based
methods to manage life’s challenges, build resilience, and find acceptance.

We can help with:

  • Improving academic performance

  • Anxiety in children manifests as unexplained physical symptoms such as feeling sick in the tummy or headaches.
  • Depression in children frequently shows as a change in emotional reaction to minor events. Some signs are heightened distress, frequent crying, sadness, anger, irritability, agitation, or not engaging in previously enjoyable activities
  • Major life events such as parental divorce, death in the family, or relocation
  • Bullying-physical or cyber bullying
  • Trauma, OCD, Drug and Alcohol issues

As an adult we experience stress, sadness, grief, and conflict. So when should you see a therapist? Put simply, if the events in your life are making you feel overwhelmed and are taxing your ability to function then you should see a psychologist. Some common signs to watch out for are:

  • Everything you feel is intense
  • You’ve suffered a trauma and you can’t seem to stop thinking about it
  • You’re using a substance to cope
  • You’re getting bad feedback at work
  • You feel disconnected from previously enjoyable activities
  • Your relationships are strained
  • Your friends have told you they’re concerned
