Gold Coast psychology


It's within the human experience to face difficulties throughout our lives. Whether it be family conflict, relationship issues, communication problems, the death of a loved one or issues with self-esteem, our ability to enjoy our life and reach our full potential can sometimes become painful and challenging.

When these difficulties arise, it's not uncommon that they're met with ineffective solutions. In order to get by, many people will develop maladaptive coping strategies and defence mechanisms which most often are detrimental to their health and happiness in the long term.

Though we will all face challenging times at some point, this does not mean we have a mental illness; we just need a little support and guidance to deal with our life situation.

Seeking support from a psychologist is the first step in taking back your life. The aim of a psychologist is to help you overcome the problems you are facing, develop greater life balance, acquire new relational and communicative skills, improve self-confidence and self-esteem and overall health and well-being.

Psychological therapy at Cassia Wellness on the Gold Coast

What is Psychological Therapy?

Psychological therapy at Cassia Medical follows an individualised, empathetic and personalised treatment approach. A combination of treatment modes and methods will be developed, tailored specifically to your personal needs and introduced to you with kindness and compassion.

Psychological therapy involves talking with your psychologist, answering questions, explaining your thoughts and feelings and describing your experiences. Discussing these experiences and feelings to someone else helps clarify your thoughts and improve your self-awareness. Through out loud analysis, you can gain a different perspective, become aware of behavioural patterns and unhelpful thinking patterns. When you discover what you want and say it out loud, it can help motivate you to act on it.

There is no shame or embarrassment in seeking help when you need it; no matter the issue, with the support and extra help provided by a psychologist, your new coping strategies and new found confidence will encourage you to overcome those trying times.
