Why see a psychologist?

Psychological therapy assists people experiencing difficulties with their mood, thinking, relationships, health, and other life challenges. It is a caring, professional, and non-judgemental process where individuals can discuss and explore issues that concern them, and learn better coping strategies to empower and help individuals live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Victoria assists people in a broad range of Clinical Psychology issues, including:

  • Mood disorders, including depression and perinatal mood disturbance

  • Stress, coping and adjustment issues

  • Sleep disorders

  • Communication and assertiveness

  • Anger management

  • Pregnancy support counselling

In addition to Clinical Psychology, Victoria has a special interest in the area of Clinical Health Psychology, which focuses on the connection between physical and psychological health. Clinical Health Psychology is a specialist field that aims to promote health and prevent illness. It can assist people with management of chronic health conditions, chronic pain, and adjustment to medical diagnoses and physical illness.
