How We Can Help You…

We believe in the importance of connection with your psychologist.

Research tells us that the most significant predictor of a positive outcome for therapy is the relationship someone has with their therapist. This factor has been shown to be even more important than what interventions, strategies or techniques are used in counselling. It is crucial you are connected with someone you can relate to and build a strong, trusting relationship with.

At Thriving Minds Psychology, we place great importance on the intake process. We take the time to match our clients with the right psychologist based on individual needs and our teams diverse skill set, therapy frameworks and personality.
