At Atticus, we believe that the mind has to be right for the body to function well.  Therefore, we give much attention to mental health.  It is very exciting to see patients improve their health overall – mind and body.  That’s truly when optimal health can be achieved.  

We have a team of psychologists who can help you.  Psychologists use various techniques to help improve the mental health of their patients.  Underpinning all of this is the belief that by changing the way we think, we can change our emotion and behaviour and ultimately reach a happier place.  Seeing a psychologist helps us to reflect and take stock of our own beliefs, to challenge those beliefs and really open up our minds again.  If approached with an open mind, the whole experience can be most transforming.

Some of the issues treated include –

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Panic disorder

  • Compulsions

Taking time and effort to work on your mental health can be life transforming.  There is a saying “your mind is like a garden, if you don’t tend to it, weeds will grow”.  It’s worthwhile pondering this.  Your mind, like any other part of your body, needs training.  Psychologists can be considered then, in some senses to be the “personal trainer” of your mind.
