Psychology

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 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.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Therapy
The ABA approach and its techniques can be used to help children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) improve their social skills, self-care skills, communication skills, play skills and ability to manage their own behaviour. It can also help reduce difficult behaviour like inattention, aggression and screaming.

Psychological IQ Testing
We use the most up to date, well-researched test instruments and technologies to administer IQ tests for assessing child and adult performance. These tests can help us understand a variety of mental abilities and attributes, such as achievement, personality, and neurological functioning. We understand that being tested can be a sensitive experience so the utmost care is taken to provide a relaxed and supportive environment. Please contact us to enquire about the range of tests and assessments that make up our diagnostic and test library.

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. 

Injury claims
Whether you have a personal injury, work-related matter, or have been in a motor vehicle accident, our experienced Psychologists can assist you through the recovery and rehabilitation process.

Report Writing
At Mindwise, we are well known for our exceptional expertise in report writing. We can provide a wide range of reports for different circumstances, including but not limited to court, immigration, Centrelink, NDIS review, medico-legal and treating reports.

Online/telephone counselling
If you are looking for therapy in Sydney NSW, but are in a remote area or have restricted access to mental health professionals, we can offer therapy to you through telephone consultations or video conference using Zoom / Skype. You can also access these services if you feel that face to face consultations are not right for you. If you are based overseas, you can access this service via private fees. 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.

Work Development Order
If you are unable to pay a fine you’ve incurred, and you meet the eligibility criteria, Revenue NSW can issue you with a Work and Development Order (WDO). This will reduce your fine by allowing you to participate in certain treatment.

We have Psychologists who are approved WDO practitioners who may agree to support your WDO activity and apply on your behalf. Contact us for more information or visit the Service NSW website.

Consultancy and Training
We can provide consultancy and coaching services to your business or organisation on a wide range of areas and topics. Choose from our ready-to-go workshops or request a tailored training package designed with your unique ideas in mind.

We utilise evidence-based approaches to enhance your teams effectiveness, connectivity, productivity and motivation. Invest in your employees wellbeing via our corporate psychology services. Support them during critical incidents with group debriefing and one-on-one therapy. If you would like to contract one of our professional clinicians, we can arrange to have them come out to you at your organisation / school, or any other location you require. Please contact us for more information.
