At Holdsworth House, we care about your health and wellbeing. Our friendly psychologists can assist you to achieve improved mental health by offering effective treatment and management of a variety of conditions, some of which are listed below:
Psychology is the study of human behaviour, thought and emotion. Psychologists are trained in human development, neurology and psychopharmacology, abnormal mental health conditions and a cross-section of evidence-based psychotherapies. They also study the use of clinical psychological and psychometric assessment tools and a variety of interpersonal counselling techniques.
To remain members of their professional association, the Australian Psychological Society (APS), psychologists must follow a strict code of ethics which dictates how they may interact with their patients and ensures protection of your confidentiality as an important aim. To continue being accredited in their profession throughout their entire career, they must also continue their professional education and undertake ongoing training in such areas such as the latest psychological therapies, psychometric assessment, psycho-biology counselling and all other areas of their usual practice.
Many psychologists also specialise in coaching and supporting people with improving the overall quality of their thinking, emotional functioning, motivation and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Psychologists frequently offer help with strategies to better manage pain, depression, anxiety, relationships, exposure to traumatic events, grief and bereavement and many other issues.
All psychologists consulting at Holdsworth House are appropriately state-registered and are leaders in their professional field, offering only high quality, ethical and evidence-based therapeutic treatments. Psychologists undertake an initial assessment and personal consultation, to explore personal issues with you and help you feel comfortable with the approach the psychologist feels might help best, before commencing further psychological therapy consultations with you.
