Psychologist Perth

In a given year, one out of five Australians experience a mental disorder. Nearly 50% of Australians have suffered from a mental disorder at least once during their lifetime. In the last few years, psychological care has been more recognized as part of healthcare that people have a right to receive if they need it. 

Someone that may benefit from mental health services might not necessarily meet the diagnostic criteria for a specific psychological disorder. Rather, there is a whole population of people that are living with mental health concerns that impede their quality of life. 

If you or someone you know might be feeling like they need to see a psychologist, then we encourage you to book an appointment or make an inquiry with us. 

How can a psychologist help? 

On the surface, a session with a psychologist might just look like sitting and talking about your feelings. In reality, psychologists are trained professionals that are equipped to help you overcome your mental health struggles. They select evidence-based techniques to treat mental disorders. 

Psychologists utilize therapeutic approaches that are meant to help you overcome the challenges that you’re experiencing. In the same way that you would see a physician for a physical ailment, a psychiatrist will give you the right care for your mental health. Your psychologist may also teach you skills to help you manage even outside of therapy so that you leave your sessions more equipped to deal with your daily reality.
