At Birch Psychology we believe that everyone can benefit from learning skills to manage the various difficulties that can arise across the lifespan, whether these be large or small. We hope to provide each person who comes to Birch with support and encouragement to maintain positive mental health and wellbeing.
Our Psychologists have many years of experience in helping people overcome mental health concerns. Birch Psychologists frequently support people with and without a diagnosed mental illness to improve their functioning and pursue physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Therapy is based on talking through your concerns, and frequently practising behavioural, or thought techniques over the course of a number of sessions. The length of therapy depends on the complexity of the problem. Our Psychologists deliver evidence-based therapy (meaning these techniques are well supported by research), which we tailor to the circumstances of the individual to achieve improvement in psychological symptoms, and help people to build full and meaningful lives.
Psychologists do not prescribe medication. However, they will recommend you see your GP or a Psychiatrist if they believe medication could be included as part of your treatment.
You do not need a referral to see a Psychologist, however substantial Medicare rebates are available for up to ten sessions per year with a referral from your GP.
