Do I need to see a psychologist?

Do you feel that:

  • Your not coping very well with everyday life?
  • The difficulties you are currently facing, you have not dealt with at all before?
  • You and your partner seem to be fighting more and talking less?
  • The difficulties you are facing resemble problems you have experienced in the past?
  • You are coping well, but would like to learn skills to be more capable in managing your life’s circumstances?
  • Family / friends / work colleagues / loved ones are concerned with your mood or behaviours?
  • You feel that you would benefit from some parenting advice in managing things at home?
  • You would like to learn to become more confident / assertive / less anxious or happier?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions and you think things could be going better in your personal, family or work life, then a psychologist could assist you, and/or your family.

Registered Psychologists have at least 6 years of training in the psychology of human behaviour and are therefore skilled to quickly find the approach to improve your situation that best suits your needs.

Sometimes people are unsure about whether a psychologist is the best person to see about their situation. If this is you, it is suggested that you make an appointment, talk to the psychologist and find out for yourself if psychological therapy or counselling is helpful.

Most times within the first few visits you and the psychologist can together work out the best course of action – whether it is further psychological treatment, or something else.

It's up to you to decide whether you think the psychologist can be of assistance and whether you feel you can open up to this person.
