What is Counselling?

About our Psychologists

WHAT IS COUNSELLING?

Counselling assists you to further gain understanding about the issues you are experiencing and provide you with effective tools and support to deal with them. It provides this in an independent and non judgemental way.

IS IT OK TO CHOOSE TO SEE A COUNSELLOR OR PSYCHOLOGIST?

Yes, most certainly. More and more people are beginning to recognise the assistance that counselling may offer when dealing with other work and personal issues, whether it be for minor or more in depth matters.

It is a fallacy to think that you must be 'crazy' to seek the services of a psychologist.

SEEK THE RIGHT SUPPORT

You would not ask your neighbour to check and treat your broken leg, you see a Doctor. Why, because they know what they are looking for and are trained to treat you properly. Just like a Doctor, Psychologists are professionals trained to know what to look for and provide the best treatment to aid your circumstances. Be aware that backyard help can be more damaging than good.

Be aware that you do not have to have qualifications to call yourself a counsellor or psychotherapist. You do need qualifications to call yourself a social worker or psychologist. If you intend to seek counselling, always check the persons’ qualifications and experience.

ABOUT YOUR PSYCHOLOGIST

Before people can work as a psychologist they must be registered with the Psychologists' Registration Board in their State or Territory.

Psychologists may also be a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), which is the largest professional association in Australia, and the author of the profession's Code of Ethics.

The psychologists in this practice are registered in the State of Queensland and are also members of the APS and the APS Clinical College.
