Psychology in Cranbourne

Psychologists are trained professionals who understand thought patterns, emotions and people’s ‘head space’ in general, and have techniques and strategies that they can use and teach you in order to live a more balanced and empowered life with a more positive frame of mind. They can also help you to overcome difficult life circumstances and can help you develop strategies to relate better to yourself or others.

One of the problems that psychologists work with is Depression and Anxiety. Mainly because it is so common in the community.

Our patients tell us that they feel comfortable and at ease once they have met with us. More often than not they are nervous and not sure what to expect from a Psychologist. We use tools such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to assist patients with their mental health. It is a therapy that focuses on how we think and behave and how sometime we can get stuck and by making some adjustments we can experience improvements in our outlook and wellbeing.

Is it really awkward to see a Psychologist?
It shouldn’t be – but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel nervous or apprehensive beforehand. That is totally normal. The first step in meeting with a practitioner is for them to help you feel comfortable and at ease once you meet them. Our practitioners understand that more often than not you may be nervous and not sure what to expect from a Psychologist. Discussing personal issues can be confronting and our practitioners encourage you to take your time as it is important that you feel comfortable. Part of the therapeutic journey is focusing on problem solving and assisting you to move forward. If you want, self-care practices such as deep breathing and meditation can be practiced during your session.
What kind of therapies do the Psychologists at HealthMint use?
Our Psychologists, Priyanka Nair and Dr Natasha Rogers, use tools such as Emotion Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to assist patients with their mental health. CBT is a therapy that focuses on how we think and behave and how sometimes we can get stuck – so by making some adjustments we can experience improvements in our outlook and wellbeing.
Natasha and Priyanka will also go through self-care practices such as deep breathing and meditation in the session if this is something you want. Dr Rogers may also use Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and/or Interpersonal Therapy.
