Welcome Amanda Haselgrove to the team

Adelaide Psychological Services would like to welcome Amanda Haselgrove to the team. 

Amanda is keen to see adults with varying presenting concerns, and tailor assessment/treatment approaches to client needs using best evidence-based practice. She has experience in treating depression, anxiety (generalised or social), post-traumatic stress disorder, panic, eating binges, obsessive/perfectionistic compulsions, anger, stress, grief and loss, cancer related concerns, and suicidal thinking.

Amanda also has research experience in post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and moral injury in military personnel, in addition to her own previous employment experience as a soldier and police officer, so she can understand some of the specific challenges faced by those working in these roles.

Amanda primarily uses a cognitive behavior therapy approach, but she also incorporates elements of acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness practices. Amanda intends to expand her use of therapy modalities over time.

Couples Therapy and Marriage Counselling

 

Couples Therapy and Marriage Counselling

 

Couples Therapy and Marriage Counselling provided by skilled relationship psychologists has been shown to be effective in preventing breakups, while improving communication and harmony.

We have both female and male psychologists who are trained in relationship therapy. At Adelaide Psychological Services, we provide a safe and skilled environment for couples to talk about their difficulties and worries. The more couples practice discussing their emotional tensions, the sooner they make progress.

Our psychologists are committed to helping clients using established psychological interventions, they are relaxed and friendly people you will enjoy meeting again and they teach skills that last a lifetime.

If marital / relationship tensions lead to anxiety or depression, then you may eligible to receive Medicare rebates for therapy, under a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan.

If the aim of therapy is to revitalise a relationship, with no depressive symptoms, it’s not covered under Medicare, however some private health funds provide rebates.

For more information or to make an appointment, phone our receptionist on 8295 4150.

Relationships Australia is a helpful website, for those interested in some reading materials
