How can we help?

At Phoenics Health, our clinicians are experienced in dealing with a wide range of psychological and psychiatric issues.

They are also able to support clients with optimising their well-being and improving performance across a number of domains including sporting, academic, relationship and social spheres.

Types of therapy

Our clinicians are experienced in the fields of psychiatry, clinical psychology, child and adolescent mental health, couples and relationship counselling, family therapy and more.

  • Adult Psychiatry and Psychotherapy

    Adult patients are assessed by psychiatrists and allied health professionals according to the nature of the problems with which they present to Phoenics. Medication may be prescribed where appropriate.

    All patients will receive some form of psychotherapy, whether brief, supportive and problem-focused, or more intensive and focused on a long-term development of understanding of the whole personality.

    The nature of treatment recommended would be discussed at the beginning of treatment.

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy

    Psychiatrists and allied health professionals work individually and collaboratively to provide a comprehensive assessment and treatment service focused primarily on adolescent developmental issues.

    Young people are seen by themselves, and also in the context of their family and social, educational and vocational worlds.

    Therapy is then tailored to meet the needs of the young person and their family, and may include a range of treatment options.

  • Couple Therapy / Relationship Counselling

    Couples / Relationship Therapy is a form of psychological therapy used to treat relationship distress for both individuals and couples.

    Couples therapy can assist people who may be experiencing a loss of intimacy and trust, or sexual and communication difficulties. It helps to identify each individual's contribution to the difficulties in the relationship as well as the relationship dynamic.

    Couple therapy highlights the opportunities for realistic change within the relationship.

  • Family Therapy

    Family Therapy enables family members to express difficult thoughts and feelings safely, to understand each other's experience and views, appreciate each others needs and make healthy changes in their relationships and their lives.

    Individuals can also benefit from Family Therapy to reflect on their significant relationships

    Major areas of attention include communication patterns, relationship boundaries, allegiances and relevant multi-generational issues.

  • Forensic Psychiatry

    Forensic Psychiatry represents the interface between psychiatry and the legal system. One of our practitioners provides a resource for criminal and family court assessments and reports.

  • Teen Groups at Phoenics

    Groups provide young people with a safe space to ask questions about the things that worry them, and an opportunity to explore their difficulties and interests in a confidential, non-judgemental environment that promotes trust and openness.

    Groups help to make self-acceptance easier. Supportive relationships make difficult situations less overwhelming. The sense of belonging, and of being appreciated by others, grows.

    Through the Phoenics Teen Groups, young people gain a greater sense of confidence and connectedness with others. As their self-esteem and resilience get stronger, it becomes easier for them to be real, authentic and easy going.

    Young people who are feeling overwhelmed by worry, anger, weirdness, isolation, boredom, disconnection or sadness, can gain important life skills. Their personal satisfaction and peace of mind increase as they develop into a supported and supportive ally.

    Phoenics Teen Groups can help with school reluctance; the hurt, anger or sadness of bullying; exclusion, feeling left out or on the outer. All kinds of negative feelings can become easier.

    And new strengths can be realised.
