Sunshine Coast Psychology Services
Psychology is the scientific study of how people behave, think and feel. At our Sunshine Coast Psychology Clinic we aim to help people live a happier, healthier and more meaningful life through helping them understand why they (and others) think, feel and behave in the ways they do, and helping them to cope more effectively with situations and mental and physical health problems.
Generally speaking, psychologists most often assist people with depression (including postnatal depression), anxiety, panic attacks, excessive worry, grief and loss, high-stress situations, changes to family environment, child behaviour problems, relationship problems, reactions to trauma, and adjustment to physical impairment or chronic disease. This is not an exhaustive list, and there are many more situations in which a psychologist can offer help.
Psychology sessions begin with an assessment, which involves the psychologist spending some time to assess and understand the client’s situation. After an assessment consultation, the psychologist will work with their client to implement and practice specific evidence-based and effective techniques and therapies that will help to bring about lasting change.
Our psychologists are trained professionals with expert knowledge and clinical skills. They aim to build a supportive and empathetic relationship with each client, through actively listening to and understanding each individual’s unique situation, emotions, feelings, thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and actions, and providing support and guidance throughout the process.
