What can you expect from a clinical psychologist at MVS Psychology Group?
People come to see a clinical psychologist for different reasons and have different expectations and goals in mind. For some, it may be the resolution of a traumatic event, or an exploration of who they are; for others it may be relationships, anxiety or depression, to name a few. Whatever it is that brings you to us, coming to an understanding about you and your concerns, is at the centre of what we do.
Our psychologists can help you with a range of concerns. A clinical psychologist is trained in the mind: Specifically, the mental, emotional and behavioural processes that contribute to who you are and how you experience the world. Such an understanding is almost always not straightforward. For example, experiences have the power to overwhelm us, memories can seem to almost be lost, and anxiety or depression can seem to appear without reason or feel insurmountable and too difficult to change on our own. Understanding this can require the help of a skilled professional. Our clinical psychologists are able to assess the causes of distress within your life and history and understand the contributing factors (including genetic predisposition, social and family influences, as well as your coping style). We aim to help you to develop a way forward to manage and treat your concerns and, ultimately, to enable your recovery. We use psychological therapy to help you achieve this.
Our treatment and the approach that we take are diverse and comprehensive because we endeavour to provide you with the best service. This means that you can rely on us to treat your concerns after we establish a clear picture together. Our approach is always informed by the best available evidence. Everything we do is designed around a mutual understanding and a relationship together. We also understand that psychology is not a one-size-fits-all human science. Outcomes, success and change are built on a mutual understand and a solid relationship. We get this and want to build a connection with you first and foremost. We tailor your treatment and monitor the process. Most importantly, we talk to you about what we are doing together and why. You can rely on us to use the most appropriate treatments with your needs in mind. Helping you is at the centre of what we do and this starts with a thorough understanding, together, of who you are.
Lastly, if you’ve been referred by a doctor, paediatrician or a psychiatrist, you can expect us to involve them in your care. This sets us apart from many practices in Melbourne. We communicate with your care team after meeting you and establish a mutual understanding about your treatment and your needs. We strongly believe in working together.
