Counselling and psychotherapy are about actively seeking to change life for the better. They’re also about growing as a person. We’d love to help you achieve these goals.

At Armadale Psychology, we see counselling and psychotherapy as a personal growth experience that occurs when an individual seeks help (from a psychologist) to improve their psychological and emotional wellbeing. Our clients are given the opportunity to explore their past, present and future to better understand themselves and how they think, feel and behave. This process allows clients to identify and change unhelpful thoughts, emotions and behaviours. We also invite our clients to learn new skills and strategies to help them cope better when things get tough.

With greater self-understanding and an updated skill set, clients are able to make better psychological and emotional decisions, foster positive outcomes and build lives with greater meaning. 

At Armadale, we work with clients across a range of issues, whether personal, romantic, familial, academic, or work-related.

  • Depression and mood problems

Whether it’s a specific issue that needs to be addressed in the short-term, or a more complex problem that requires long-term therapy, we use evidence-based therapeutic approaches and deliver high quality services to meet our clients’ needs.
