About Us

OUR APPROACH

Mindscape Psychology provides counselling and psychology services for children, young people, and adults. Mindscape Psychologists understand that at times in our lives we may struggle with some of the challenges that life throws at us. Whether that be dealing with adjustment and change, relationship breakdown, or personal and work life stress. At Mindscape Psychology we will help to give you insight in understanding what is going on for you, what has caused the problem, and what is continuing to maintain the issue.

Our focus is to assist you to utilise your strengths, help you find direction and provide you with practical skills to manage your thoughts, emotions, and circumstances. You will benefit from enhanced wellbeing, increased self-esteem, and resilience. Our therapeutic approaches are person-centred, solution focused, and evidence based.

At Mindscape Psychology, we are registered with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and the Psychology Board of Australia. This means that we utilise high quality evidence based treatment and follow the Psychologists code of conduct.
