A Nudge For Thought

This weeks video!

Hi everyone and welcome to a big 2019!

This week Dr Justin answers the BIG question that came up after his video on the difference between psychiatry, psychology and counsellors. Better yet, we introduce our new series of Nudges about – love. Yep, getting the love you want (well, more of the time, anyway!)

Because – it matters what you think!

The Nudge Team.

 

That’s right.  Every week Dr Justin Harrison will be positing a short (2-5 minute) video here on the Nudge Blog page for you to ponder, try out, or just for general interest. The videos will come as discrete series. So one month we may have a series on Parenting, another series about Sleep, Relationships, and so on. But the very first series Dr Harrison would like to tackle will be about Psychology Practice.

What do Psychologists do, and how are they different from Counsellors, Psychotherapists or Psychiatrists?

What different kinds of Psychologists are there, and does it matter?

What can and should you expect when you visit one?

Looking forward to clearing all this up with you, starting October 2018!

The team at Nudge would love to take this opportunity to wish you and your’s a safe and restorative festive break. To that end, it can be helpful to manage our expectations of others and ourselves, and that means extending a little grace. What’s so amazing about grace?

Warm regards from Dr J

 

This week, I explain the differences between Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Counsellors and Psychotherapists. This is a simplified and general description covering quite a complex area, but as consumers you deserve to know what you’re getting and from who.  For further information, call Nudge or talk to your GP or mental health professional. Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions!  I’ve even included some questions you can ask to get the best out of your mental health professional.

Oh, and here’s the Australian Psychological Society Charter for Clients. Worth a read if you are, or are thinking about seeing a psychologist. Click Here.

Because that’s just good thinking – right?

Looking forward to giving you another Nudge soon.
