Psychology for Thriving

"Utilising the latest psychological interventions to help people move from surviving to thriving"

Andrew Duirs | Psychologist


Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, sadness, grief or low mood? Have you lost a level of energy and vitality important to you? Are you struggling with change in your life? Are you feeling frustrated or stuck? Working with a psychologist can help you better understand these experiences and develop psychological skills to manage them more effectively.

I utilise the latest behavioural and psychological interventions including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MiCBT) and Compassion Focused Therapy. The focus of therapy is to help you learn ways to respond more mindfully and compassionately to difficult experiences in your life, adjust to change and identify what works best for you to help you thrive and achieve your goals. 

I am a registered psychologist with over 20 years of experience providing evidence-based psychological interventions with empathy and compassion. I am passionate about helping people move from surviving to thriving.  See my qualifications and experience here.
