At Mindwise, we provide a supportive and caring environment to help you achieve healthy psychological functioning and well-being. Our qualified and professional Psychologists adopt a warm, respectful and nurturing interpersonal style to empower clients and create a sense of comfort so that they can navigate through difficult times. Our goal is not to promote dependence on psychologists but to teach clients the skills to manage their own conditions.

Some of the Psychological services we provide are as follows:

Assessment and Treatment 
The Psychologists at Mindwise have extensive experience in conducting assessments for your mental health care needs. Since effective treatment relies upon precise assessment and diagnosis, you can be at ease in our competent care.

Positive Behaviour Support and Neurodiversity

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) focuses on making improvements in a person’s quality of life. PBS recognises that all behaviours happen for a reason, and similarly, challenging behaviours also have a purpose such as communicating important information about a person’s needs, stresses, and skill development. People who are unable to communicate easily can often be misunderstood and behaviour becomes their main way of communicating. This is where PBS comes in, by assisting behaviour support practitioners to try to understand what a person is trying to communicate. PBS is not applied behaviour analysis (ABA) and does not involve long hours of repetitive therapies. It does not include punishments or trying to make someone ‘less autistic’ such as by increasing eye contact or reducing stimming behaviours. Instead, it recognises and respects an individual’s neurodiversity and unique strengths. Our behaviour support practitioners work to understand a person’s preferences, communication styles, sensory needs and challenges, so that we can create an environment that supports their well-being and positive engagement. We seek to foster a collaborative and inclusive approach with the person and carers, thus promoting a sense of autonomy, dignity, and self-determination.

Positive Psychology and Life Coaching
Positive psychology is the study of the “good life”, or the positive aspects of the human experience that make life worth living. It differs from traditional psychology which focuses primarily on mental illness, abnormal psychology, trauma, and pain. But positive psychology focuses on happiness, well-being, exceptionalism, strengths, and flourishing.

The field is intended to complement, not to replace traditional psychology. It does not seek to deny the importance of studying how things go wrong, but rather to emphasise the importance of using science to help things go right.

While many people believe they can achieve greater results by working hard to improve weaknesses, research continually shows that a strengths focus is far more effective. Everyone has strengths. Not everyone is clear about what their strengths are and how to capitalise on them.

Research tells us that when we are using our strengths, we are happier, more confident, we have higher levels of energy and vitality, we are more resilient, engaged and more likely to achieve our goals quicker. We are flourishing, thriving and experience enhanced well-being. This doesn’t mean we won’t experience life’s challenges; it means we are in a better position to deal with them.

Take the Strengths Profile Test today with our CAPP-certified Psychologist and Life Coach. This online test will reveal your unique profile, detailing your unrealised strengths, learned behaviours and weaknesses. These meaningful insights allow you to learn how to make better decisions, be the best version of yourself, choose the most appropriate career path, and live purposefully.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a natural and pleasant altered state of consciousness that brings about selective, focused attention, where you are deeply relaxed and alert at the same time. We usually experience this “trance-like” state in everyday life when we are daydreaming or just before we drift off to sleep. Clinical Hypnotherapy is the use of this altered state of consciousness to bring about lasting, positive change in a person’s life.

The human mind is of two parts: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind, which is a largely untapped, powerful tool, controlling emotion and behaviour. Most human problems and habits do not come from the conscious mind. For example, you don’t consciously decide to be anxious. Because hypnotherapy deals directly with the deep intuitive wisdom of the inner mind, it can assist us to bypass those obstacles and negative belief patterns we often get stuck in.

Hypnotherapy is a safe, proven and effective tool for directly accessing the power of your subconscious. In hypnosis we have more flexibility and power to replace old response circuits with new desirable ones that can assist us to achieve those things we have previously struggled to do using our everyday conscious mind. Awaken your subconscious and tap into its strength to treat anxiety, depression, addictions, IBS, lose weight, quit smoking, nail biting, teeth grinding, pain management, sleep difficulties or insomnia, improve memory and concentration, improve self-esteem and confidence, change unwanted behaviour patterns, assist with birth, surgical and dental procedures.

If you are based in Australia, telehealth sessions can be covered by Medicare and your private health cover. which means counselling is now more accessible and affordable than ever.
