We’ll walk alongside you with support and guidance to a better life

There are many reasons someone might visit a psychologist. Sometimes life throws us challenges that we may feel we are unable or don’t want to battle through on our own. At other times, we may feel that while the challenges of life are under control, we want to uncover and explore unused opportunities in our lives.
Sometimes talking to friends and family members can be enough to help us feel we are moving in the right direction but at other times, we may find it useful to explore and work in a more concentrated way on unhelpful underlying patterns of behaviours, thoughts and beliefs.
Many people have found that having someone walking beside them in this process who is empathetic, nonjudgmental and trained in the most efficient and effective ways to help live according to their values and achieving their goals is a powerful, rewarding and life-changing experience.
Everybody is different, with different needs goals and values. We will optimise robust evidence based approaches to help you get where you want to go.
Evidence based approaches are at the heart of what we do. Having a robust evidence base helps you achieve efficient, sustainable change.
We scour the latest psychology and medical journals every month for the latest evidence based approaches so that you can be assured of getting cutting edge tools and systems.
We treat you like person rather than just someone with challenges, symptoms or road blocks in their way to the life they want.
Everything you say will be held in complete confidence. Whatever is said in our rooms stays in our rooms.

Some of the most common disorders that people experience are anxiety and depression. Other conditions include stress, chronic worry, obsessions and compulsions, panic attacks, perfectionism, phobias, trauma, and many more.
Whatever you are struggling with, you don’t have to deal with it alone, and asking for help from a professional psychologist may be the kindest and most courageous gift you can give yourself. The skilled and sympathetic help of a psychologist may provide the life skill or change in perspective that will lead you to the life you desire.
We at Angus Munro Psychology in Sydney will walk alongside you with support and guidance to a better life.
Expertise includes educational background and experience: General psychologists must have, in addition to a university degree, two years of supervised experience. Clinical Psychologists, on the other hand, are specialists who have received in-depth training in treating complex psychological issues, and have received a Master’s Degree and/or Doctoral Degree in addition to an Honours Degree in Psychology.
A good psychologist or clinical psychologist should be continually developing their skills and staying current on new developments in evidence based treatments.
Meeting your psychologist in person is extremely important to find out if you are compatible, but you can visit their websites or blogs to gain insight into whether they might be a good fit for you.
Appointments are usually scheduled based on your availability and psychologists can often adapt their hours to yours. At Angus Munro Psychology in Sydney, we do offer appointments beyond normal office hours.

Upon your initial consultation, you will work in conjunction with your therapist to create a psychological treatment plan that is tailored to your needs, in terms of methodology and time frame. Most clients have weekly sessions, and during each 50-minute treatment session, your therapist will gently guide you through a process of self-discovery and help you learn new ways of thinking about or approaching the issues that are confronting you.
Normally the first goal is to provide treatment for the most acute symptoms so that you have the freedom to go deeper, into self-discovery, finding solutions to your issues, or developing life skills.
There is no one path in therapy, however. The goal is to challenge oneself without being overwhelmed; and to take each step in your own time, when you are ready. Your psychologist or clinical psychologist will be able to guide the speed at which the psychological treatment takes place, in order for your mind and emotions to process the changes that are occurring. Sometimes these changes are obvious; and sometimes the changes are happening under the surface.
If you are not sure if your treatment is working, talk to your psychologist. If you feel like your therapist listens and understands you, and if you have a relationship based on trust, he or she will be able to help you understand the process and point out goals or signposts along the way. Even the smallest step can lead to big changes.
In general, a psychological disorder is considered more severe than a psychological problem. Disorders tend to have clusters of symptoms that have a sizeable impact upon your life, while psychological problems may be have only one or two symptoms that are less severe.
You can do a brief screening of your Mental Health by clicking here, but we highly recommend seeing a professional psychologist, who will be better equipped to help you understand what factors are involved and what kind of treatment would best suit you.
Whether you have a disorder or a problem, keep hope, for both are treatable with therapy and/or medication.
People with severe or chronic problems tend to need longer-term therapy, while acute symptoms may require shorter, more targeted treatment.
Long-term therapy can mean anything from six months to several years, and may benefit from medication. Ultimately, though, you are in charge of your therapy, and you should feel free to tell your psychologist what your goals and time frame are.
The only exceptions to the rules of confidentiality are in very specific situations when a therapist can (or must, by law) break confidentiality. The main examples are when there are clear signs of imminent harm to another person or yourself, or in the case of a court order.
If psychologist discusses your case with his supervisor or other colleagues, he will make sure to do so in a way that will not reveal your identity. At our clinic in Sydney, Australia, everything you say will be held in complete confidence.
