Practising psychologists and psychotherapists have the professional training and clinical skills to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems.

Some people may talk to a psychologist because they have felt depressed, angry, or anxious for a long time. Or, they want help for a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives, or physical health.

Others may have short-term problems they want help navigating, such as feeling overwhelmed by a new job, or grieving following the death of a family member. Psychologists and psychotherapists can help people learn to cope with stressful situations, overcome addictions, and even manage chronic illnesses.

Maeve, just wanted to thank you for another successful RAID delivery, and as is obvious from the feedback people were very happy with the content, with the way you presented, your up-beat energy and enthusiasm.
