A Health Psychologist is a trained professional who works with people who live with chronic health conditions, and helps them manage their conditions more effectively.
Do you have an ongoing health issue that you find difficult to manage, such as diabetes, arthritis, obesity, heart disease or chronic pain? Are there things you would like to do to improve your health, but you find it hard to get motivated? Not sure where to start? Then a Health Psychologist can help you. We can work with you to help improve your health and wellbeing, provide support and motivation to make positive changes, and connect you to other health and wellbeing services.
