Hello and welcome to ABC Psychology Plus.
What does the name mean? Many things really. The
A represents becoming aware of our thoughts, our feelings and our behaviour and their interconnections.
B represents the dynamics of conscious behaviour and choice around what we do, how we think (which is a behaviour too)
C represents intentional change with a purpose and desired outcome.
Psychology is focused on assisting to restore mental health. Shola is qualified and may assist people with mental health issues of various types including depression, anxiety, obsessions, fears, phobias. The Plus of ABC Psychology Plus refers to the fact that we offer support once mental health has become compromised and offer preventative positive psychological services to help maintain good mental health and general wellbeing.
The Plus also refers to the fact that we offer professional counselling services in addition to the psychology side. Counselling is quite different in approach and works from the premise that the client is the expert in their own lives. The goal is to support you to work through to find your own solutions to life’s challenges. It does offer psycho-educational support when you are stuck. The potential benefits are enormous in being able to debrief with a neutral person who is qualified to really listen to you and understand you.
People who are ready and willing to make changes in their lives are welcome and will be assisted to help build resilience and acquire new skills to deal with life’s challenges and transitions.
Shola works with children from age 5 years and up, adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups.
We also run various therapeutic and educational groups throughout the year depending on demand.
Modalities used are all evidence based and include the following : Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); Mindfulness, Interpersonal Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy Relaxation Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.
