Carl Rogers

"The good life is a process, not a state of being"."

 

Why see a psychologist?

Many people experience difficulties related to change or loss in their lives, or at times feel overwhelmed by life' s many challenges. 


Seeking assistance from a trained psychologist can help gain insight into the situation and learn strategies to manage the distress more effectively.

Therapy can be a challenging experience, yet incredibly empowering as one learns how to manage difficulties and create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

 

Sigmund Freud

“Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.”

 

Our Psychologists

Dr Lisa Meehan

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Lisa Meehan's approach is to work collaboratively with her clients to assist them to discover what they really want out of life and to gain freedom from what holds them back. Dr Meehan enjoys assisting clients to gain meaning from the past, an ability to live in the present and a sense of hope for the future. She particularly enjoys assisting people to develop a more robust sense of self and a stronger identity of self regardless of the clinical presenting issue.

Dr Meehan has a keen interest in physical well being and nutrition and the associated benefits with mental health. She regularly attends professional development in these areas of interest and they will form part of the discussion with clients. 

Dr Meehan has worked in community health, public health, universities and in private practice. She is most skilled in working with individuals presenting with anxiety disorders, mood disorders, adjustment disorders and life transitions, health related problems, grief and loss, psychotic disorders and trauma.
