Some people may only require 2 to 4 sessions. Others may require an ongoing and more intensive session that requires long term and ongoing support.
At the beginning of your appointment you will be asked general questions. These questions may include why you have come today and what may be troubling you.
Throughout the session they may ask you about your life to help gauge a better understanding of your situation and to help you start a treatment program.
At the end of your session, you will be given an overview of whether you require more sessions. You will also be given an idea of what you can expect in these sessions and any steps that you need to take to a brighter future.
Psychologists are mental health care professionals who study and research the science of human behaviour. Their findings are applied to help patients reduce stress and negative conditions, improve their thinking patterns and habits, and boost self-awareness.
At Life Resolutions, we require high educational standards of our psychologists. All our psychologists have a minimum 4 years’ university education, as well as two years’ graduate education and/or two years’ work experience under the supervision of a registered psychologist. Some of our staff hold special titles such as Clinical Psychologist or Sports Psychologist; these people have completed a minimum of six years’ tertiary education, often including a research PhD.
Professional psychologists have training in a variety of different therapies and treatment methods, which allows them to customise their approach to each individual patient depending on his or her needs and goals.
Unlike psychiatrists, psychologists use non-drug treatments (they do not prescribe medications). However, where appropriate, they can work with other medical professionals including general practitioners, who can prescribe medication as part of a complete treatment plan.
Yes, 100% confidential. The team at Life Resolutions won’t discuss any of your private details with anyone, not even with our other psychologists. We would only do this if we have permission from you directly.
Anything that is shared in your sessions are used for the purpose of diagnosing, assessing and providing the right level of support you need.
It’s important to note however, that while our services are 100% confidential, due to the Psychology Board of Australia’s Code of Ethics, we do have limitations.
For example, if a client’s file is subpoenaed by the court, or if a person is at serious risk of harming themselves or those in the public, we must act with the law and the safety of the client and those around them.

A psychologist is a professional practitioner in the field of mental health care. They generally research and study the science of human behaviour.
