Friendly, non-judgemental and confidential care.

We believe that talking to a Psychologist is for everyone.

We aim to help people live a happier, healthier and more meaningful life. We do this by helping them understand why they (and others) think, feel and behave in the ways they do. And ultimately provide therapeutic treatment and clinical psychology tools to help them to cope more effectively with life challenges.

Some areas and services our Sunshine Coast Psychologist Qld team can support:

Our Psychologists are highly trained and experienced in the area of ADHD diagnosis and psychological intervention.

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. There are many different treatments available and our experienced team will work closely with you to support you to better health.

We specialise in the diagnosis and support of autism. We believe in supporting the individual and their families.

Unmanaged and ongoing anger creates problems for you and others around you and can significantly impact your health, your relationships and your life. Anger can also get in the way of dealing with problems effectively and can, in fact, make the problem worse.

Our team of Sunshine Coast Psychologists are trained in providing psychological support if you feel your anger is out of control. Your psychologist works with you to assess if your anger is a problem and helps you identify the triggers and early warning signs of your anger. You will learn how to express your anger in other ways that enable you to live a healthy and happy life.

There are a number of different techniques that can be used with children to deal with mental health conditions and other psychological and behavioural issues. These tend to be used to help children to develop emotional regulation, resilience, confidence, relaxation and relationship skills.

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder or clinical depression, is one of the most common mental health disorders in Australia.  Fortunately, with the right support, depression is a highly treatable condition.

The cause of depression is multifactorial, meaning there may be genetic, biological, psychological, social and environmental factors contributing. Major life trauma, stress and change can be a trigger for depression. People with chronic disease, such as cancer, heart disease and other debilitating illnesses are at an increased risk of depression, as are those with a family history of depression.

Many people find that talking to others can help the healing process, and the support of family and friends is integral. Professional help is available and recommended if your feelings of grief and loss are intense and long-lasting, if you feel overwhelmed with pain or as though you will never recover from your grief, if you are avoiding/finding it hard to grieve, or if you find it hard to participate in day-to-day activities.

Professional support, such as seeing a Psychologist, can help you to move through the grieving process and thus allow you to move forward. Seeking support early is important as long-term or overwhelming grief can significantly impact your overall health, however, seeking support at any stage, no matter how long ago you experienced loss, can provide relief.

If you are experiencing symptoms of OCD and find that they are affecting your work, school, or home life, our Sunshine Coast Psychology team are here to help. Our Psychologists are empathetic, non-judgmental and confidential.

Becoming a parent involves a roller coaster of emotions such as excitement, joy, stress, anxiety and apprehension. Emotional distress, also known as the ‘baby blues’, is common during the first few days after giving birth, causing new mothers to feel overly sensitive, teary, overwhelmed and moody. For most women, this experience is a normal part of the process and should dissipate within a few days. If these feelings are affecting your day-to-day functioning or have still not lifted after a few weeks, it is worth speaking to a trusted healthcare professional about support that is available.

Seeking support early is important, as postnatal depression and anxiety can impact not only your mental wellbeing, but also your relationship with your partner and your baby. Plus, it can be an extremely overwhelming and isolating experience as you try to cope with your own symptoms as well as adjusting to and caring for a new baby (and sometimes other children). Postnatal depression is nothing to be ashamed of and there is nothing “wrong” with you. It is important to remember that postnatal depression is a temporary medical condition and fortunately, with the right support, it is treatable.

If untreated, PTSD can have a significant impact on one’s life, causing ongoing problems, including relationship problems, physical conditions (headaches and fatigue), sleep problems, difficulty working/working too much, and other mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression or substance abuse.

We work collaboratively with you to develop and implement effective treatments that enable you to manage and recover from PTSD. Specific psychological treatments that have been proven to benefit those with PTSD include trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive processing therapy (CPT), and exposure therapy.

Our team of highly trained and friendly Psychologists are able to offer an array of assessments. Including (but not limited to):

  • Complete Psychological assessments- including for Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Acute and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, Dissociative Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and ADHD in both children and adults.
  • Children’s social, emotional, language and cognitive functioning (all aspects of child developmental assessments)
  • Medico-legal assessments
  • Stress investigations
  • Cognitive functioning assessments
  • IQ Tests (Children and adults)
  • Needs assessment
  • Vocational assessment
  • Personality assessment
  • Parenting Styles assessment 

Whether you feel as though your relationship is truly on the rocks and couples counselling is your last shot, or you simply know that your connection and partnership could be enhanced with professional support, our dedicated team of psychologists can help you.

A psychologist or counsellor can provide professional support to help you understand the condition and implement and practise specific evidence-based techniques that will enable you to manage your social anxiety and bring about lasting change. This may include developing skills and techniques for managing anxiety, simple lifestyle changes, and using psychological therapies such as mindfulness techniques and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

It is common to feel like there is no end to chronic stress, however, there are a number of treatment approaches that have been proven to effectively reduce and manage stress. It is often not as simple as saying “stress less”. Rather, a thorough approach to stress management will enable you to feel empowered to identify and manage stressors and stress, ensuring you can lead a balanced life that supports your overall health and wellbeing.
