Psychology

Psychology helps us all to combat problems without having to resort to medication.

Psychologists are not there to say “it is all in our head” or play mind games, but help on a more in-depth level with education and information.

The impact of pain, nausea and needle phobia, for instance, can markedly affect quality of life. Our psychologist helps young people and their familes to understand why these problems occur, what strategies can be used to cope and how to get back to doing the things that are enjoyable.
