PLEASE NOTE: Due to a high increase in referrals, we had to unfortunately close our books until further notice. We are not looking to hire other clinicians at this stage.

Our Services

Trauma

Trauma can be physical and/or psychological and depending on the severity of the injury, someone may or may not require extra support to heal. Small or big, painful events can have significant, long-lasting negative impacts on how our brains develop and function and thus on how we act and feel about ourselves and others. Any untreated trauma can have large impacts on our future health.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. The approach can work to resolve all types of trauma, phobias, anxiety, depression, grief, addiction and many, many more symptoms, without even having to talk much. EMDR is a powerful treatment that many clients have referred to as “life-changing”. EMDR therapy is regularly used in Europe, Canada and the USA and thankfully Australia is now embracing this treatment.

Disassociation

The term ‘dissociation’ is used to describe many symptoms and they can be differently understood by different professions. In psychology we understand that dissociation is a symptom that comes as a result of having experienced severe trauma.

Simply put: dissociation means disconnection or fragmentation and this disconnection sits on a continuum ranging from a random zoning out in traffic (mild symptoms, most people do this at times), to multiple personalities (severe symptoms). See the image below for a better understanding.
