Working with a psychologist allows humans with life challenges (that’s pretty much all of us!) a unique opportunity to delve into our messy stuff so we can better understand who we are. Our Psychologists offer a holistic approach to assessment, diagnosis, and management of emotional challenges. Digging around in ‘the stuff we don’t talk about’ helps us be better versions of ourselves and to relate better with the important people in our lives.
With the guidance of a skilled Holistic Psychologist, you can regain balance in your emotional wellbeing and lead a happier, more fulfilling life.
Expertise and Evidence-Based Techniques
With a minimum of six years university training, Psychologists deliver evidence-based techniques and specialised therapies to help people manage their lives.
Who can benefit from Psychology?
Psychologists support all kinds of people. Some folks have diagnosed mental health disorders, some folks have trauma they need to work through, some folks have depression, anxiety, burnout or stress symptoms.
Some folks simply spend their times with a$$holes and need some strategies around creating better boundaries and resourcing themselves to make different choices and experience more space and joy!
What is Psychology?
Psychology is based on talking through your concerns, and frequently practicing behavioural or thought techniques over the course of a number of sessions. How long your therapy lasts depends on the complexity of your problem.
Our Psychologists have a wide range of therapeutic techniques in their toolbelt to help resource you to be more awesome. All of the techniques we use are evidence-based, meaning they’re supported by current research.
EMDR at Our North Carlton Holistic Centre
Many clients are interested in EMDR. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a contemporary psychological technique that enables healing from traumatic or life-altering experiences and conditions. The aim of EMDR is to reduce distressing emotions associated to traumatic memories.
EMDR is growing in popularity due to the unique functions of the technique. When having EMDR treatment, you may not need to relive traumatic events in as much detail as traditional talk therapy, reducing the risk of retraumatization.
At our North Carlton Holistic Centre, our registered Psychologist provides EMDR therapy to clients from North Fitzroy, Collingwood, Brunswick and surrounding areas. If you’re looking for EMDR therapy in Inner North Melbourne, we can help you!
