Background of PSYCHmatters
PSYCHmatters was established in Concord in 2003 by principal psychologists and directors Dr. Rose Cantali FAPS and Ms Nesli Karadeniz MAPS. The centre specialises in psychological services for adults, adolescents and children.
At PSYCHmatters, we understand the need to maintain emotional balance can sometimes be met with life challenges and adversity. We aim to provide the best possible treatment for our clients in effectively managing their approach to these changes through using a range of therapeutic interventions which address their individual needs.Together, we work with our clients towards developing the skills and approaches necessary to achieve improved wellbeing.
PSYCHmatters is staffed by experienced registered general psychologists, clinical psychologists and provisionally registered psychologists, who are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia, a division of the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA). The centre is also staffed with Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapist.
All psychologists are also members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS).
Why See a Psychologist?
It is important to recognise that everyone has difficulties, suffers from distress or feels stuck or overwhelmed at certain times in their lives. Seeing a psychologist creates an opportunity to collaborate with a professional trained in mental health, human behaviour and development to reduce stress, explore issues which impact your life, and find effective solutions which best fit you. Counselling provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment; a source to turn to when you don’t want to burden other people or when you feel there’s no one available to listen. Therapy can help to provide clarity and insight, facilitate recovery from life events, deal with dysfunctional life scripts, develop new skills, or simply gain perspective from someone who is not directly involved.
Consulting a psychologist can be of benefit even for those who are not suffering from adverse symptoms, for example, those who would like to improve performance, self-confidence, communication, wellbeing and quality of life, commitment and direction.
