How to Choose a Clinical Psychologist
One of the experts in clinical psychology Melbourne has available will be able to help you improve your mental health. Clinical psychologists can treat a range of issues, including:
- working through grief associated with the loss of someone you love,
- dealing with trauma and PTSD,
- dealing with a recent diagnosis of a chronic or terminal illness,
- overcoming sleep problems,
- overcoming phobias,
- anxiety and depression,
- eating disorders and poor body image,
- low self-esteem,
- or, dealing with relationship difficulties
Once you’ve decided to work with a clinical psychologist, you’ll need to choose which clinic or practitioner you would like to consult. To do this, it’s worth remembering that different clinics (and practitioners) often have different areas of treatment focus – for example, some may focus on addiction treatment, while others may focus on depression treatment.
It’s also a good idea to think about what your personal preferences are in a psychologist. For example, most teenagers prefer to talk to younger psychologists, whom they can easily relate. It is also common, for example, to wish to speak to a psychologist from the same sex.
