Psychology

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 time 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 North Carlton 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.

CBT and ACT at Our North Carlton Holistic Centre

Many clients are interested in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment therapy). ACT is a contemporary psychological technique that invites us to recognise, accept and get comfy with ALL of our thoughts and emotions – even the ugly and shameful ones.

ACT is growing in popularity due to the unique perspective of the technique.

At our North Carlton Psychologist hub, our registered Psychologist incorporates ACT therapy in sessions for clients from North Fitzroy, Collingwood, Brunswick and surrounding areas. If you’re looking for ACT therapy in Melbourne, we can help you!

Can a Psychologist prescribe medication?

Psychologists do not prescribe medication. However, they will recommend you see your GP or a Psychiatrist if they believe medication could be included as part of your treatment.
