Barrenjoey Psychology is a team of caring, well qualified and very experienced Psychologists. We provide psychological treatments and therapy to help you with a broad range of issues. We are based in a new suite of offices in the Quattro building in Warriewood near Mona Vale on Sydney’s northern beaches.
Barrenjoey welcomes people from all cultures and we see people of all ages as individuals, couples and family groups. We believe no two people are alike and you are unique with what you need help with, our psychologists will treat you with respect and care. We will develop a treatment plan which involves your goals for therapy and the estimated number of sessions in the first session we meet with you.
Our lighthouse whilst a local landmark is also a sign we understand life can be rocky. It is important to have someone you can trust with clinical experience to help you navigate to a place where you feel safe again. Our psychologists would like to work with you and help you to develop life skills that enable you to shine your own beacon when your journey gets rocky again.
Who can benefit from a psychological consultation?
Anyone who is suffering from distress or major disruptions in their lives can benefit from a consultation with a psychologist. People do not always have to have a mental illness or psychological disorder to benefit from seeing a psychologist. A few sessions of strengths based treatment with one of our Psychologists can be extremely effective at improving a person’s mental and physical well-being. We can help if you want to improve your well being and develop life skills that may assist you to attain personal goals or communicate better with those important people in your life.
Our Psychologists are all trained in a range of different therapies. We will use our clinical knowledge, our experience and details gathered in this initial interview to find what will be the most effective type of therapy for you. This may include:
- Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT)
- Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT)
- Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)
Can therapy help couples and families?
Our psychologists at Barrenjoey Psychology work with couples, many of whom find it extremely helpful to work with a psychologist on their problem areas. An investment in your relationship can be extremely rewarding and long lasting.
The psychologists at Barrenjoey Psychology have clinical experience and training working with both young adults and children. When working with young children we achieve the best outcomes when we are also able to include some appointments with a child’s parents.
Do organizations benefit from providing counselling for their workers?
Over the last 15 years psychologists from Barrenjoey Psychology have provided solution-focused employee assistance counselling for a broad range of organizations in both the public and private sectors. Promoting a sense of well-being in your staff and access to short term counselling can greatly reduce absences, staff conflict and staff turnover.
