Our Melbourne psychologists study the way people feel, think, act and interact. Using a range of strategies and therapies they aim to reduce distress and to enhance and promote emotional well-being. Counselling allows a person to openly explore his or her concerns, deal with personal feelings, consider alternatives and clarify goals in a supportive atmosphere. You don’t necessarily have to have a problem or a mental disorder to see a counsellor or psychologist – very often people ask for help to improve and develop themselves. For example, you may want to increase your confidence, you may want to learn to communicate better with friends and family, or you may want some strategies for managing stress in a healthy way.
