Depression – Mia Olsson

Mia Olsson       Quals: BA Psych (Hons), Dip Nurs, Assoc MAPS

Depression: Depression is a recognised condition that can affect anyone at any time of life. You may not feel bad all day, however in general your mood and thinking can be very negative. You may also have trouble with sleep, appetite, and feel very lethargic and unmotivated. Trying to ‘snap out of it’ or ‘just get yourself together’ may help temporarily, however therapy and/or medication may be required for longer term results. If you are unsure why life looks and feels different, visiting your doctor or psychologist may help you to move forward and feel better sooner rather than later.

Counselling Approach: Mia believes that every client who attends the clinic has their own story, their own challenges to overcome, and a specific set of values that drive their life choices. Mia endeavours to accommodate individual differences and assist clients to reach achievable goals. She focuses on Cognitive and Behaviour therapies with an emphasis on self-empowerment to help you build a sense of control and mastery whilst regaining a strong sense of self.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.

Fees: Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $180 hr (inital appts $220). Evening  and Saturday appts available.  For information on hardship rates please contact reception.

Practice Location: Unit 1, 16 – 18 Beenleigh-Redland Bay Rd, Loganholme.

Depression – Melanie Green

Melanie Green –   Quals: B. Psych (Hons); Cert in Comm Services; AMAPS – Provisional Psychologist.

Depression: We all experience feelings of sadness, disappointment and low mood from time to time. People who have depression can experience these feelings intensely for weeks, months or even years and sometimes without any apparent reason.

Depression is not your fault, it is an illness and it is treatable.

Counselling approach: Melanie is passionate about helping clients to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. She is committed to using evidence-based therapies including Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to create a treatment plan that is individualised for each client.

Depression – Dr Amanda White

Dr Amanda White   Quals: PhD, B Psych (Hons), B Beh Sc, DipH, MAPS.

Depression: Low mood reflects feelings of sadness, irritability, guilt, hopelessness, and helplessness. This depression can result in substantial changes to the way a person thinks, feels, and behaves – often causing an avoidance of activities previously found enjoyable, causing mood to worsen over time. Depression can follow the stressors associated with life changes, from a genetic predisposition to mood disorders, or as a symptom associated with physical health problems, such as hyperthyroidism.

Counselling Approach: Treatment for depression can be quite diverse, which reflects the diversity of people who suffer from this common mood disorder.  I work with adults (late teens to seniors) as an eclectic-base therapist to develop tailored treatment plans that best suits the clients’ way of working and treatment goals. Successful outcomes can be reached through interpersonal and cognitive behavioural therapies, as well as motivational holistic programs that may include such areas as fitness, nutrition, music, and art.

Current Availability: Dr White’s books are currently closed to new clients. Please Visit the M1 Psychology website for details on other suitable psychologists.

Fees: Usually $220 for 50 min consultations. Initial Consultation $260.
