NEBMHS Psychology Services are integrated within the Community Mental Health Services based in Albury, Wodonga and Wangaratta and are available for you to access on referral from your treating psychiatrist, while you are receiving services from NEBMHS.
Psychologists take an interest in human behaviour about how people think, feel and react. Using evidence-based practices, psychologists focus on understanding your current difficulties and circumstances and provide you with a tailored, individualised therapy program.
An example of a common therapeutic approach a psychologist might use is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which has been proven to be an effective method of treatment for a range of mental health conditions, including anxiety and depression.
A psychologist will use techniques such as CBT to help you develop more effective coping skills, help you work on distressing and challenging thoughts, assist in improving your motivation and work with you to develop your confidence and your path to recovery from mental illness.
Other services include:
- Clinical psychological assessments
