We all experience times in our life when unexpected difficulties arise from relationship problems, work stress, family problems, financial difficulties or life changing events to name a few. When things like this occur it can play havoc with our emotions and overall mental health – resulting in depression, anxiety, anger or addictions. We “should” be able to cope we think to ourselves – but realistically it’s just not always that easy…
Sometimes you just need a little help and talking to a psychologist is an excellent first step. That’s what we do…provide help and hope…when things are just too hard to deal with alone.
The team at Life Resolutions Essendon is a bunch of fully qualified, registered and highly experienced psychologists. We share a common goal and motivation – to help you move forward and overcome obstacles that stand in your way of living a full, healthy happy life.
We do this by listening, analysing the problem/s and helping you to find strategies and coping tools that are practical, realistic and obtainable. Depending on what the issue is – for some clients a few sessions are enough – whereas others with more chronic mental health issues may benefit from a longer term treatment plan.
We chose the name Life Resolutions because it really does reflect what we do – help to resolve either current or past issues that are causing distress or discomfort. We don’t see any problem as being too big or too small and our practitioners will always take you seriously, treat you with respect and work with you collaboratively to find solutions. We believe there are always solutions, even though it may to seem to be the case at the time.
People often ask us what has motivated us to become psychologists. Well - there is no one single answer to this, however most of us have some sort of experience with mental health issues – either personally or through loved ones, friends or family – and have therefore seen first-hand the effectiveness of therapy on most mental health issues.
Whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction, anger management, stress or relationship problems we know that by applying the right type of therapy – for you personally and in relation to the problem/s you are experiencing – we can work together to find a remedy. It doesn’t always happen overnight – but it does happen!
As fully trained, registered and experienced psychologists – out expertise lies in creating a plan (which may be long or short term depending on severity of symptoms) that will work specifically for you as an individual. Our reward comes when we see your progress and you get to that point where you realise that situations CAN change, that you DO have the power to change it, and you have found some strategies and coping tools to facilitate those changes.
Our favourite words to hear are “I don’t think I need to keep seeing you” – although our door is always open if you decide you want to come back – even for a single session.
