Professional Psychological Help for Overall Well-Being

Kensington Psychology and Well-Being

Restoring Mental and Physical Health

Kensington Psychology and Well-Being is a psychology clinic with a focus on you as a whole person - your background, current challenges, and what brings you to wellness.  We are a warm, professional private practice dedicated to offering you the best possible psychologist for your unique needs, delivered via evidence based treatment.

​​

You can find a professional and understanding clinical psychologist at our Kensington Park practice, nestled just a short drive from Norwood in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs.

​Psychological Therapy is provided for individuals as well as for couples. Based on over twenty years of successful private practice experience, treatment is always compassionate, client-focused, high quality, and tailored to the needs of the client.  Whether you need help with anxiety, depression, panic, a difficult life event, a workplace or interpersonal issue, or to cope with a traumatic experience, our psychologists can offer expert and effective help. We ensure that we can offer you the best psychologist, matched to your specific needs.

Anxiety has many faces: from incessant worry to over-busy minds, panic, stress, catastrophising and physical symptoms like insomnia, IBS, migraines and headaches. 

The good news is that effective techniques can be taught to bring rest to the weary, anxious mind. Our psychologists are highly skilled  and can help you gain control of your life again.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by a too long to do list? Are you finding it hard to relax and you've become more irritable and serious lately? Is insomnia and an inability to switch off your mind becoming routine? Stress can wreak havoc on health and relationships. Our psychologists can help by teaching relaxation techniques and resilience.

Depression can affect people of all ages, from all walks of life and backgrounds. It can be debilitating, and yet so many put on a brave face as they struggle on. One in five Australians are affected at some stage of our lives.

Effective therapy is available to overcome your sadness, low energy, and loss of joy.

Life-threatening and upsetting events such as serious illness, divorce, or an accident can sometimes lead to ongoing emotional issues such as insomnia, flashbacks, chronic anxiety, low confidence, and PTSD.

When your symptoms don't fade naturally, it is important to seek help.

A person's sense of self worth can have a profound impact on mental health, social interaction and even achievement. Therapy can improve confidence and complete acceptance of who you are, that is steady no matter who you are with. This leads to improved mood, easier interactions and living authentically.

Panic attacks are severe anxiety attacks that come on suddenly and can feel very overwhelming. They can also make us feel uncertain in our selves, avoiding places where they may happen, and in general cause general distress.

Thankfully, there are now effective treatments available for panic attacks.

Chronic pain - whether from injury, fibromyalgia, arthritis, or a chronic condition can impact significantly on quality of life. Our psychologists can teach techniques to manage pain better, provide support, and utilise techniques such as mindfulness and meditation to help.

Have you lost the connection you used to feel with each other? Are you fighting far too often, or not really talking anymore? It's sad and lonely and no one likes to live this way. Couple's counselling teaches effective communication and how to rekindle your love and friendship.
