What is Wellness Psychology?

Wellness Psychology is a clinical, coaching and consulting psychology service which can help you see the opportunity, the positives and the blessings during times of stress and adversity.

Our main focus is helping individuals, families, and organizations achieve emotional wellbeing.

We do this by thoroughly assessing your current obstacles and challenges, uncovering your strengths, teaching you valuable and life-long skills, helping you set and achieve goals and guiding you towards empowerment, confidence, and a sense of direction and purpose.

We are here to empower you to have the courage, belief and trust that when difficulties in your life arise or when difficulties have been around for many years, what may seem like a lifetime, you have an amazing opportunity to make a change in your life… because only through change will you experience a difference – a difference that opens doors to opportunities, successes, possibilities, happiness and love.

“Each second you can be reborn. Each second there can be a new beginning. It is choice. It is your choice” – Clearwater

Wellness Psychology teaches you to look at adversity in an empowering way, away from feeling helpless, hopeless and stuck.

It is in the negative perception of these adversities that we experience challenging and unpleasant emotions such as fear, anger, resentment, shame, sadness, depression and other emotions which can create a barrier around your world.

The more you think you are unable to change a situation or even blame someone else for it the more you keep those very emotions alive.

Wellness Psychology helps you resolve and move past negative emotions.

Working with your emotions can be a powerful and liberating experience. You can learn so much about yourself, others and the world.

In working with emotions, our approach isn’t to go over the past and rehash traumatic experiences, unless that is something you intuitively feel you need to do.

Instead what we do is guide you to trust, feel and accept whatever your emotional experience. In learning to accept, feel and therefore free yourself from the negative effects of emotions you learn to trust and believe in yourself. This is the core of confidence and self-esteem building.

When you uncover protective layers of negative emotions, you reach an inner place…a place of love, wisdom, trust, power, and freedom. This is the place we take you to step by step.

Remember that on this journey you are not alone. We are right here guiding you. Safety and respect of your journey is important to us.

In your initial session we will ask you to fill out a few questionnaires which will provide a baseline measure of your current situation. One of our psychologist will then meet with you to understand your current situation and discuss your needs and goals. This is important because the clearer the goals the more likely they are to be achieved.

Generally, we will recommend a schedule of appointments to help you make the most of your sessions. You will be given weekly appointments for 6 weeks at which point we will have a review of your progress and goals. We will then schedule further sessions according to your needs.

When you commit to making a change in your life you have already taken the most important and difficult step. From here on, amazing transformation starts to take place.

To help your process of learning and transformation you will be provided with a Wellness Psychology Care Plan, support letters and educational series for you to read in between sessions to help reinforce your learning and growth. You will also be given support in between sessions via phone call or email as necessary.

We look forward to meeting with you.

Change can be an amazing part of life, so why wait!
