Phobias – Claire Pang

Claire Pang    Quals: B Psych Hons, Master of Clinical Psychology

Phobias: A phobia is an intense fear of an object or situation that affects your whole well-being. At a physical level, you experience a rapid heartbeat, muscle tension, dry mouth and sweating. Behaviourally, you start avoiding the situation that has evoked fear and your life becomes more limited. Strong fears also cause great emotional distress. If the intense fear seem irrational and inexplicable, it would be natural to raise the question “why”.  Genetic imprints, personality, upbringing or recent life stresses can partly contribute to the development of a phobia. Learning about the causes of phobias is not enough to overcome your particular difficulty; a comprehensive treatment addresses physiological, behavioural and emotional aspects of fear by introducing:

  • Relaxation techniques to calm your body
  • Exposure to fear stimuli to eliminate avoidance behaviour
  • Positive self-talk

Separation and Divorce – Claire Pang

Claire Pang    Quals: B Psych Hons, Master of Clinical Psychology

Separation and Divorce: Separation and divorce can be highly stressful and often leaves the separating couple, their children and family members on an emotional roller coaster. When one partner has decided to leave and the other does not, the initiators may seek relief from feeling guilty of hurting his or her partner. On the other hand, the non-initiators often respond with a sense of shock, disbelief and helplessness over the decision process when they first hear that their relationship is over.

Counseling can offer a chance to examine the relationship without blaming each other. Once both parties acknowledge that their relationship is over, mourning the loss can leave both feeling profoundly lonely, sad and angry. In addition to the grieving process, the separating couple also faces many transition challenges ahead such as custody arrangements, financial settlements, re-establishing social networks and learning to be single again.

Counselling Approach:  Claire is a Clinical Psychologist with specialist training in treating depression, anxiety, trauma and complex mental health conditions. She is result-orientated, practicing a wide range of therapeutic approaches with great success. In the case of separation counselling, she adopts an integrated approach with a range of effective relationship counselling techniques to help couples and individuals defuse emotional distress, enhance effective communication with their spouse, facilitate co-parenting, enhance decision-making abilities and develop self-confidence in being single again.
