Relationship Counselling

One of the most common causes of daily life stress is the relationships we have with people. This can include intimate relationship issues, work relationships, social relationships, and family

If you are in an abusive relationship and are experiencing domestic violence or family violence, confidential information, counselling and support is available from 1800RESPECT. Please call 000 if you are in danger and remember that violence isn’t always physical.

If you frequently have conflicts with work colleagues, feel discriminated against, or lack confidence and assertiveness in the workplace, counselling can help you understand why you feel the way you do and provide you with actionable strategies to overcome them.

Family relationships can be a source of stress for many people. Financial problems, perceived lack of respect, and intergenerational differences in values can often lead to communication and relationship breakdown.

Even within a circle of close friends, conflict can occur. You may feel resentment towards someone in your social circle or you may feel that your peers are disrespecting you. This can result in a lack of trust, deepen communication issues, and create social anxiety.

Dealing With Grief & Loss

All of us have our own grieving process when we experience a significant loss.

It is normal for symptoms of grief to surface during this difficult time, however, if you are experiencing increased irritability, numbness, anger and bitterness, detachment, excessive guilt preoccupation with loss, or an inability to show or experience joy, you may benefit from talking with a health professional such as a grief counsellor.

Counselling Services For Addictions

Addictions are varied in their type and become a problem when they negatively impact on an individual’s employment, finances, relationships, health or personal goals.

For those who have addictions, it can be difficult to manage addictive behaviours yourself. Thus, seeking external help from counselling can help clients with their addiction.

Our evidence based counselling services can assist with the psychological aspects of addiction including exploring the behavioural and emotional causes of addiction. Working in conjunction with other health specialists, individualised plans and treatment goals are created, to gain the best outcome for clients.

It is common for people to experience anger as a primary emotion. It is important to give yourself time to explore and express your feelings of anger so you can be unburdened from it. Counselling can assist you to do this in a non-destructive manner.

Our anger management psychologists work with people experiencing anger as a primary emotion. Find effective ways to learn better ways to express their emotions without resorting to anger as their default response to external triggers.

Social Anxiety

Also known as social phobia, social anxiety is more than feeling shy or being introverted around people and new surroundings. People with social anxiety disorder experience intense fear of certain situations and this can have a negative impact on their quality of life.

Our practitioners can assist in helping you develop a coping mechanism to reduce the impacts of social phobia. For more information on social anxiety including a real client case study, please refer to our guide here.

Who Are We And Why Should You Consider Us For Your Mental Health Needs In Sydney

With psychologists who are fluent in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Italian, Hebrew, Telugu, and Cantonese, we are one of the few private practices who can offer you culturally-sensitive evidence based counselling.

New Vision Psychology has three convenient locations that service Sydney’s North Shore, Sydney CBD, and Sydney South. Throughout COVID-19, online counselling is available and as long as public health advice from the NSW government allows us to provide in-person consultations, our practices across Sydney are available to you.

Please note that New Vision Psychology is a private practice. As such we do not offer bulk-billed psychology services. However, many of our counselling services fall under the Better Access initiative where you can receive a Medicare subsidy for up to 10 sessions per calendar year as long as you have a Mental Health Care Plan.
