For many people, the start of a new year marks an opportunity to reflect on their life and think about where they would like to be in the future. And New Year resolutions can be a great opportunity to prioritize health and wellness. Starting small could look like trying to reset your sleep schedule and prioritizing having a bedtime. Or it may start with your home, beginning to organize one room at a time, first focusing on your closet and later getting to your kitchen. Still, it could be as simple as noticing your thoughts and incorporating daily gratitude affirmations.
As we progress into the New Year, the team at New Directions Psychology wish you all the courage, strength, motivation, and inspiration to keep reaching for your goals and continue to be available to provide further support should you need such to do so.
"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

WISC - V Assessment
New Directions Psychology can provide cognitive ability assessment (or intelligence testing) for children and adolescents aged 6-16 years.
Assessments are conducted by our experienced clinical psychologists and usually involve between 3-4hrs of face-to-face interview and testing using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V), the most widely used test for assessing cognitive abilities.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychological treatment that has been used effectively for over 30 years in a variety of international settings and cultures with many different types of psychological distress. Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with the aim to reduce distressing emotions associated with traumatic memories. Clinicians have also successfully used EMDR as a treatment component in the management of many other conditions including depression, anxiety, panic, and phobias.
For more information about EMDR, please follow the link.
