Fist, we find out about your main concerns
Many people call us asking us how to choose the best Clinical Psychologist or Counsellor. We start by asking you about the issues that are bringing you to counselling. Our clinical psychologists treat a wide range of issues so we will help you find someone that has experience working with the issue that concerns you.
We can tell you about the Psychologists available
We can tell to you about the different Psychologists and Counsellors available and the type of approach they each use in their work. We can also tell you about the therapists particular areas of expertise. For example you may be looking for someone with strong experience in self esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, relationships, work problems or any other life issue.
We can tell you about the different treatment approaches
Psychological therapy can vary from practical and short term therapy, to longer term treatment to address longer standing issues. Most of our client’s are new to therapy and are simply looking for a skilled Psychologist in Sydney. Our job is to help to choose from our range of treatment providers by telling you more about them and their counselling treatment approach. Together we can find you a psychologist who is likely to be a good fit.
If you have a preference for working with a particular model of change, we can tell you which of our Psychologists or Counsellors works in your chosen modality. We can also explain the different therapies to you so you can make a better choice.
For example, you may have heard of therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is short term, evidenced based and helps you learn skills. No problem, we can arrange a session with a psychologist who specialises in that therapy. Or you may be interested in a more personal and conversational therapy, such as Psychodynamic therapy or Supportive Psychotherapy. Our people are varied in their approach to psychology, so we can connect you based on your preference.
Most importantly, even if don’t know anything about therapy or have never seen a therapist before, we can briefly chat with you and find out about how you like to learn or what sort of personality you think would best help you deal with your current issue. Together we can help you make a better decision about the right psychologist for you.
Finally, if you are still not sure on who you wish to see, we can send you a selection of biographies with information on the Clinical Psychologists and Counsellors for you to choose from.
