Clients attending Next Wave Psychology can expect a comfortable and secure environment where evidence-based treatment is tailored to the unique goals of the individual or couple. Given the client-centred approach taken at the practice, treatment during ongoing psychology sessions will vary accordingly.
Though Dr Amber Denehey specialises in the treatment of relationship difficulties and trauma, she is trained to provide psychological therapy for a wide variety of presenting issues. Upon arriving at the practice for your initial session, you will be given a small amount of paperwork to complete, so it is a good idea to arrive 5 minutes early for your first session if you can. Dr Amber Denehey will then ask about your goals for therapy and commence a thorough psychological assessment.
After the assessment is completed, a therapeutic approach will be discussed and a mutually-agreed path forward forged. For the initial stages of treatment, a frequency of weekly to fortnightly psychology sessions is often optimal, with further spacing between appointments occurring after clients start to notice progress towards their goals.
