Psychology Services

Thriving Minds Psychology we take a ‘whole brain’ approach to therapy.

We create amazing physical and online spaces for our clients, therapists and community. Neuroscience and research suggest that calming environments assist in down regulating the “fight and flight” part of the brain, allowing clients to engage more effectively in counselling. Our physical and online spaces have been carefully and thoughtfully created to evoke feelings of welcome, calm and safety. Our therapy rooms have been designed to engage all the senses,  evoking calm and security with beautiful fabrics, textures, natural light, aromatherapy, calming music piped via bamboo speakers and lush green foliage aimed to enhance the therapy experience

For us, therapy is much more than the support you receive in session. We believe that momentum between sessions enhances the therapy process. We offer rich and diverse online platforms full of resources and inspiration. We put out a lot of information, tips and tools you can use at home in your own time to help your mental health and therapy process.

How we can help you

Anxiety is intense feelings of being afraid, nervous, tense or worried that are too strong for the situation, go on too long and get in the way of normal life. Being afraid is normal for survival in situations of real danger but sometimes the feelings are transferred to situations that are not actually dangerous.

Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of life, but when emotions such as hopelessness and despair take hold and just won’t go away, you may have depression. More than just sadness in response to life’s struggles and setbacks, depression changes how you think, feel, and function in daily activities.

Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it’s real or imagined—the body’s defences kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction or the “stress response.” Your nervous system isn’t very good at distinguishing between emotional and physical threats.

Sleep is one of the fundamental requirements of living a healthy life, yet many of us don’t pay enough attention to it until there is actually a problem, such as poor attention. Only then do we start to take notice and want to try to understand the nature of sleep.

Perfectionism is a set of self-defeating thought patterns that push you to achieve unrealistic goals. In his book, "The Pursuit of Perfect," Dr Tal Ben-Shahar explains that there are two types of perfectionism: adaptive and maladaptive.

When a person experiences an uncomfortable emotion (eg, depression or anxiety), it is usually preceded by a number of unhelpful self-statements and thoughts. Often there is a pattern to such thoughts and these are referred to as "unhelpful thinking styles".

Wellbeing is not just the absence of disease or illness. Wellbeing is about balance in all aspects in life. It encompasses the health of the whole person – physical, mental, social and emotional. In short, wellbeing could be described as how you feel about yourself and your life.

A woman plays many roles in her lifetime - including raising her children, taking care of the family, domestic and professional duties and so on. With this, also comes unique health challenges that a woman could experience in her lifetime.

Men’s mental health is an important part of their overall health and wellbeing. They need good mental health to help get through life’s challenges, to have healthy relationships with others and to enjoy life. Problems with mental health are common, and not a sign of weakness.

People bring different perspectives, talents and strengths to a relationship. You might appreciate some of the things your partner has to offer – great cooking, their sense of humour, good sex, getting on well with your family and friends – but you might not like their taste in music, the time they spend on technology or the fact they get stressed easily.

Boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify for themselves what are reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave around them and how they will respond when someone steps outside those limits. The purpose of setting a healthy boundary is to protect and take good care of yourself.

Weight loss or Weight management psychology is the process of working with individuals to identify and understand patterns and behaviours that trigger difficulties when trying to lose weight
