About

Hi there! I am Amber, the Director of Healthy Mind Psychology. We aim to be a different type of practice. Our focus includes work with those people trying to cope with all the stresses and strains of unprecedented times upon us. But many struggle with issues outside of the normal narrative of mental health, or physical health too. Our practice aims to explain the stress response (whether that be from overdue bills, a critical family system, a harsh workplace, current or previous traumas, or a host of other things!) and the science behind how the mind/body interact to create physical symptoms, emotional distress, or bad habits!
I have been working with people for over fifteen years to adapt to the challenges life bring, whether it be ongoing mental health struggles, physical illness, or specific events creating stress and upset/trauma. I use a range of practical techniques from multiple empirical treatment approaches to tailor a therapy to best suit the personality style of you!
This is a time for everyone to focus on self-care and learning the emotional, cognitive, and relational skills never taught to us in school! I would like to help by providing individualised tools and coping skills to help you through challenging times. Please contact me and we can discuss individual circumstances and how treatment or my team best suit you.
