More than 20% of Australians experience mental illness in any year. The reasons for this are varied and can be brought on by stress, relationship breakdown or for no obvious reason at all.
Individual counselling involves meeting with a psychologist over several weeks to learn how to improve and regain mental health. Psychologists are trained to help people learn new skills, habits and ways of thinking that enable them to get well and stay well.
Counselling is a wise choice for anyone who has noticed a change for the worse in their mood or who no longer enjoys the things they used to. Meeting with a Psychologist provides a safe place to consider the things in your life that you want to talk about, change or improve with a trained professional who can help.
People who go to a Psychologist for help, report an improved sense of wellbeing and learning new practical skills that help them in their daily living. Psychologists are trained to help people and although meeting with a Psychologist can seem daunting at first,most people find that it is much easier than they thought and the benefits can be life changing.
