Just listening is not enough. Our clients typically seek therapy because they’re experiencing significant distress or a major difficulty, and they’ve taken the brave step to reach out for help. Our clinical psychologists have completed many years of academic training and supervised work with clients, so you can feel confident that we know what we’re doing and that you’re in safe hands.
At myLife Psychologists we specialise in providing therapies that have been proven to be effective through scientific research, and that are recognised internationally. These include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness and Schema Therapy. The treatments we use are practical and solution focused, with guidance in practical techniques to use in every-day life.
Of course one size doesn’t fit all, and we pride ourselves on our ability to comprehensively assess our clients concerns and work with them to develop an individualised treatment plan to achieve their goals in a timely manner. Seeing a psychologist can feel like a big step, and so our therapists are always mindful of ensuring clients feel comfortable, respected and understood.
We offer week-day appointments, including after-hours, in our Alexandria consultation rooms. All of our psychologists are registered to provide Medicare and private health fund rebates.
