Healthy Minds Psychological Services

Welcome to Healthy Minds. We were established in 2006 and provide counselling services for individuals (adults, adolescents and children), couples and families who experience in an extensive array of psychological problems.

Your life can be significantly effected by everyday problems like stress from work or study; feeling unmotivated; anxiety; low mood; relationship issues and coping with injuries or illness. Addressing these common issues is essential to maintaining a fulfilling and enjoyable life.

The fully-qualified and experienced psychologists at Healthy Minds can help you develop the skills needed to manage life stressors and promote good health. They are trained in a number of evidence-based counselling approaches which include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT).

In addition to counselling, Healthy Minds offers group training in anxiety and stress management, depression management and healthy lifestyle skills.

What is a Psychologist?

Psychologists study the way people feel, think, act and interact. Through a range of strategies and therapies they aim to reduce distress and to enhance and promote emotional wellbeing. Psychologists are experts in human behaviour and have studied the brain, memory, learning and human development. Psychologists can assist people who are having difficulty controlling their emotions, thinking and behaviour, including those with mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, serious and enduring mental illness, addictive behaviours and childhood behaviour disorders.

What is a Registered Psychologist?

All psychologists are legally required to register with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, in the same way medical practitioners (doctors) must be registered. This means that they must have competently completed a minimum level of university education and provisional practice (i.e., similar to an internship), follow a strict Code of Conduct and engage in ongoing professional development.

Not all counsellors or therapists are registered psychologists. Seeing someone who is registered ensures you receive high quality, ethical treatment and also means you may be eligible for a rebate from Medicare with a mental health care plan from your GP. Many other referrers (e.g., Workcover, TAC, ATAPS) also require that you see a registered psychologist.
