We are Clinical Psychologists who specialise in counselling and therapy for adults in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie area in a warm and supportive environment. We use evidence-based treatments to ensure you are receiving the most up to date and effective intervention for your issue.
We have experience in providing counselling to address most kinds of problems or issues. These include therapy for anxiety, depression, excessive worry which is sometimes known as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), stress, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), social anxiety, drug and alcohol problems, insomnia, trauma, low self esteem, assertiveness, study skills and relationship issues.
We predominately use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which has been shown to be the most effective treatment for most issues. We do, however, employ different therapy approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness based treatments, and Compassion Focused Therapy, depending on the specific needs of the client. At the initial consultation we will discuss treatment options and develop a tailored treatment plan to address your issue.
We are Registered Clinical Psychologists and are eligible to see individuals under Medicare if you have a valid referral from your GP or Psychiatrist. If you are referred under Medicare you can receive a rebate for up to 10 sessions per calendar year. See here for more information about our fees. If you do not have a referral, we can also provide services as a full fee paying client or you may be able to claim sessions under your Private Health Insurance.
At My Healthy Mind Psychology we understand it is often difficult to make a decision to attend a therapy session. However, we believe that if you have a specific issue you would like to work on or want to discuss ways to get more meaning out of life, then engaging in counselling often leads to positive changes in the long term.
