Welcome to Psyche. The Greek word psyche translates for soul. It’s also the Greek word for butterfly, meaning transformation from primitive stage to a complete and developed one. This is the purpose of our work. For our clients to find calm, trust and meaning. A safe place to grow and move forward in life.
I am a psychologist working in south Sydney (Kogarah), Australia and also an online therapist. My job is to assist people finding meaning and fulfilment in life. Together we find out what is blocking the flow of life, which behaviours and beliefs are no longer useful. Once they are able to find and accept who they are, there is space and maturity to grow. One small step at a time.
The meaning behind the Greek myth of Eros and Psych can be compared to a transition phase in one’s life. The biggest issue during this period is trying to figure out what we want from life and, on the other hand, what life wants from us. People search for meaningful relationships, love, spirituality, happiness and fulfilment. Real life (family, work, children, finance, studies) can get busy and overwhelming. Most often this situation can lead to feelings of loss, loneliness and doubt. A sense of an unaccomplished life. What to do next? Paralysis installs itself and even when we know we need to move on, some how we can’t.
Seeing a psychologist can be a step into knowing more about this phase in life and about yourself. It is so important to have someone that can actively listen to our deepest doubts and fears, also lost dreams and hopes. A psychologist is an experienced professional that gives you support, listens to you and challenges old and unhelpful patterns. It is in this relationship of trust that one can acquire long lasting understanding of their own processes and how to move forward.
