We provide counselling to many individuals seeking support and advice for themselves in a one on one, ongoing discussion. In individual counselling you will meet with your psychologist and together we will explore your concerns, work out a plan and begin to implement and practise strategies to improve your wellbeing. Individual counselling is appropriate for adults of all ages and genders, as well as adolescents and young people.
Seeking couple's counselling is never an easy step, but it can be undeniably helpful at any stage of a relationship. Attending some sessions, as a couple, with one of our psychologists can allow you to explore issues in a safe way. You can get to the root of the problems, learn new communication skills, and figure out solutions with the guidance of a supportive and unbiased third party.
Children's counselling is very different to counselling for adults. When kids go through difficult times, or struggle with troubling emotions, finding healthy and helpful ways to express and process them often doesn't come naturally. Children's counselling at Narthanya Psychology aims to seek out your child's strengths and build on these to improve coping, functioning and wellbeing. This is a fun process for most kids and involves play, creativity and one-on-one learning.
Family relationship counselling
The quality of our family relationships has a huge impact on our wellbeing. At Narthanya Psychology we are expertly trained in bringing family members together to facilitate understanding and to improve communication, problem solving and overall relationships. Some of the issues we can help with include parenting skills, separation and divorce, boundary setting, sibling conflicts, and adult family relationship difficulties.
Online counselling is an option for people who, for whatever reason, can't get in to see us for face to face meetings. It's convenient if you don't have the time to travel in, and more comfortable if the thought of face to face counselling triggers feelings of anxiety. We offer Skype counselling if you prefer voice or video chat, however we also provide email counselling and live text-based chat in our secure online chat room.
As fully registered psychologists we are able to administer a range of psychological assessments and write formal reports summarising our findings. We are experienced in assessing adults, young people and children using a range of standardised personality, mental health and intelligence scales. These are sometimes necessary in aiding a diagnosis, identifying personality traits, or determining intellectual strengths and weaknesses. The resulting psychological reports are often used in professional, academic, and legal circumstances.
