OUR CLINICIANS

We all face challenges at different stages through life.  Perhaps you’re struggling with your child’s behaviour, you’ve had a relationship breakdown, you’ve recently lost a loved one or you just don’t feel like yourself and you can’t seem to work through your feelings.  It’s natural to feel down from time to time, but when you experience continuous feelings such as hopelessness, sadness, loneliness, anger, frustration or anxiety, we can help.

What is Clinical Psychology?
