DIETETICS

Our psychology aims to provide a safe supportive space where someone can work past difficulties and trauma. We don’t want to simply reduce symptoms but create opportunities for self-growth, feel good and provide an ongoing better quality of life. It’s about solutions.

Psychologists help people of any age, gender and sexuality with depression, anxiety or stress; drug and alcohol abuse; eating disorders; fears and phobias; low self-esteem; post-traumatic stress disorder and much more.

Psychology is both a science and a profession, devoted to understanding how people think, feel, behave, learn, and how biological influences, social pressures, and environmental factors affect them.

As a science psychological research advances our understanding of human emotion, personality, intelligence, memory, perception, cognition, attention, and motivation, as well as the biological processes that drive these human functions and behaviours.

Gaining a richer and deeper understanding of psychology can help people achieve insights into their own actions as well as a better understanding of other people.

However, as an allied health profession, the goals change. It’s about putting that knowledge into practice, to help people, communities, and society, in general, to solve day-to-day problems and improve quality of life. With psychological knowledge, we aim to guide people to solutions for real-life problems such as improving mental health and wellbeing, learning, performance, relationships, and societal cohesiveness.
