Who We Help
The dedicated team at myLife Psychologists are experienced and qualified to provide understanding and support to a wide range of people in the Surry Hills area. Our approach is flexible to adapt to the needs of all our clients including:
All children and all families are unique. When something isn’t working it can sometimes be hard for parents to find the answer. Leave it to our specially trained team at myLife Psychologists to get to the heart of childhood behavioural problems, be it in the classroom, socialising or at home. We can draw on our extensive knowledge and training to give you the understanding and techniques to overcome the issues your child is facing with care and proven techniques.
Young adults can find themselves in a world of stress, from fitting in and pleasing peers and deciding their future to dealing with family issues of discipline, divorce or extended family changes. They don’t need to go through these changes lost in uncertainty and self-doubt. Our supportive clinicians are specifically trained to assist adolescence in overcoming their issues, equipping them with lifelong skills for now and in adulthood.
Individuals come to us for so many different reasons. Some have anxiety around food, others around socialising and meeting people, some have difficulty moving on after a loss or are suffering from PTSD. Other adults just feel that something is missing and they want to find happiness and satisfaction in life. In all cases, the earlier you see us the sooner you will see the internal battle easing and the life you want unfolding before you.
myLife Psychologists can help nurture relationships in distress, whether it is from communication breakdowns, marital stress, coping with infertility or the uncertainty of common rules in a new environment, we can open a space where you can have constructive and enlightening conversations to discover understanding and appreciation.
