Ascending Psychology aims to provide a safe place for people to reflect, heal and grow. Because of this, we provide a range of fully subsidised therapy options so that mental health support is accessible to all members of the community. We also specialise in Medico-legal Assessments, including court ordered reports and Workcover claims.
As a practice, we are passionate about addressing the underlying patterns of both suffering and wellness. This includes looking into the effects that trauma and hardship have on the mind, body and spirit. As part of this, we will first make sure clients are stable and safe in their environment. From there we can start to teach the skills that are required for healing and growth. This may include learning how to notice your triggers, manage intense feelings, set boundaries, develop self-compassion, or improve your communication skills. From here it can be helpful to grieve the different aspects of our lives that we have survived and heal some of the stories we have created for ourselves. Finally, and in time, we can start to integrate our experiences so that we are no longer defined by our trauma and hardship but instead celebrate our strength as we move into the future.
