Issues we help with

Image Focus

We all go through tricky or difficult times in our lives

…but sometimes issues or situations  can be a lot harder to deal with than we expect – it’s part of being human.

Sometimes circumstances or life events occur that can leave us feeling confused, anxious, depressed, stressed or totally overwhelmed. Whether these feelings or responses are caused by problems at work, with family, children, relationships, financial difficulties or grief or loss – it can sometimes seem impossible to find a way forward.

Talking with a counsellor can certainly help!

At Life Resolutions Brunswick – our fully-qualified, registered and highly experienced psychologists are available to help with most mental health issues. We understand that it’s not enough to just sit back and listen, so we use a range of practical therapeutic techniques that provide you with coping strategies to improve your overall wellbeing.

 

Our Approach

A safe and comfortable environment

We provide you with a comfortable, private and safe place to discuss any issues you may have and work with you to get to the bottom of problems and find a way forward so you can get back to a happier, fuller and more functional life. Sometimes it really does need another “pair of eyes” (or ears) to see things in a more objective way and try new “evidence-based” strategies that fir within your personal capabilities.

For some – just a few sessions may be all that is required…for others a longer term plan works better to resolve more “deep-seated” or persistent, recurring issues.

Either way – our goal and motivation is to see you achieve YOUR goals – whether it’s overcoming addiction, recovering from depression, assisting with relationship problems or finding effective ways of alleviating anxiety – we are here to help…and we never judge.

Coming to see a therapist at Life Resolutions is a great starting step on your journey back to wellness.

About Life Resolutions

Why do we do what we do?

You’d have to be nuts to want to be a psychologist – right? We hear that all the time! Well – the truth is that in many cases we have had our own personal, confronting issues – whether through personal circumstances or life events, or through witnessing friends or family or loved ones battle mental health issues. The reality is that exposure and experience to mental health issues is so common – but finding ways through can be incredibly difficult.

Maybe you’ve tried talking to friends and family. But sometimes they are part of the problem – not the solution.

We understand that. We are here to help.

One of the most rewarding things about being a psychologist is seeing people who initially believe that their problems are insurmountable – and then to find that weeks (or sometimes months) later they have found a way around what “seemed” impossible.

Being in Brunswick – we are accustomed to working with a wide range of clients from all sorts of cultural-ethnic backgrounds, religious (or not) persuasions, sexual orientations and age groups. We are open-minded, non-discriminatory and unbiased practitioners who have your personal and individual well-being as our highest priority.
