At the OAK Psychology Clinic, we understand that not only are psychological factors related to 'dis-ease,' they are equally associated with the development and maintenance of vibrant health and well-being.
Our aim, therefore, is to assist our clients to fully realise their strengths, cope with normal stresses of life, enjoy rewarding relationships, work productively, live a satisfying life, and make a meaningful contribution to their community in the process.
Grief & Loss
Low Confidence and Poor Self-Esteem

our service addresses life issues such as:
We provide a nonjudgmental, confidential and safe environment where our clients can confront, resolve, and recover from life-debilitating issues. We are committed to assisting people to achieve the positive changes they seek, develop a system to attain their goals, and improve their overall quality of life.
We demonstrate an empathetic understanding of our clients' experience, hence providing a tailored service to meet their individual needs.
Most importantly, our work with you will seek to emphasise your values-based strengths and the constructive coping skills used in the past, to overcome current challenges.
Remember: "It is neither the past nor the present. It is how you interpret your experience."
