Moving Forward Psychology Services is a Gladstone based psychology practice that offers treatment to adolescents, men and women, parents, senior people, and professionals, who may be experiencing a wide range of mental health issues including personal and professional challenges. As psychologists, we also understand that at times a client may just need a safe and confidential environment to discuss an issue that is causing them some distress.
Your Moving Forward psychologist holds registration with the Psychology Board of Australia and is committed to ongoing professional development to further their knowledge and skills. Regular upskilling ensures that we are able to provide a wide range of treatment approaches to meet the diverse needs of our clients.
Our psychologists use a variety of therapeutic approaches to provide practical skills to enhance people’s performance and well-being. These include evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based approaches, Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), and Circle of Security-Parenting (COS-P) facilitation.
Therapy, often referred to as counselling, provides the opportunity to explore your experience with someone who is not personally involved with you. It can assist you to gain more insight into your behaviours, those that are of benefit and those that may no longer be working for you.
Therapy is much more than supporting individuals with a diagnosed mental illness. There are many other areas where therapy may be of benefit to you, including: learning to communicate more effectively, managing anger, building or rebuilding confidence, making difficult life decisions, getting motivated, life transitions such as preparing for marriage, and learning to relax.
Clients can self-refer, there is no need to have a written referral from your doctor or psychiatrist.
Your doctor or psychiatrist may refer you via a Mental Health Treatment Plan. Under a Mental Health Treatment Plan you may be eligible for up to ten (10) psychology consultations per calendar year.
It is important to note that not all clients referred via a Mental Health Treatment Plan will require ten consultations.
For individuals, couples and groups we offer a variety of services and evidence-based therapeutic interventions, designed and tailored to suit the specifics of your individualised treatment needs. Our team is trained and practices using therapies such as CBT, ACT, Mindfulness, DBT, REBT and Motivational Interviewing. Contact us to learn more about these, and how they can help you moving forward.
Working with parents and familes is a passion of ours, and we have significant experience and understanding in helping you manage family-related issues. Whether its adjusting to an existing behavioural situation better, or simply looking to proactively understand your relationships with your child, spouse or extended family, Moving Forward can help you. As a trained provider of the "Circle of Security Parenting" program, you can learn parenting techniques to protect and nurture infants through to teens, while fostering their independence, and better understanding the emotional needs a child may be expressing through difficult behaviour. Vivid stories and unique practical tools offer insight into how our own upbringing affects our parenting style (and what to do about it).
