ABOUT TIME PSYCHOLOGY
Luke Ireland
B.Sc (Psych) Post Grad Dip (Psych)

 

We will take the time to listen to your stories at the pace you want to tell it and we’re committed to utilising evidence based therapeutic practices. We aim to help you; feel comfortable and safe in sharing you story, find new ways to move towards your values, take control of your thinking and improve your quality of life.

 

We now have three treating Psychologists (Jeni and Allison have recently joined the team) of which I’m the Principal Registered Psychologist. I have over 10 years of experience providing psychotherapy and I am pleased to share the wealth of knowledge I’ve gained during my decade in community mental health.

 

I offer individual psychotherapy for adults, and I greatly enjoy the challenge of working with a wide range of people and their concerns. I do, however, have some specific interests and areas of expertise:

 

Recovery from Trauma and Loss

I prioritize creating safe a safe space where survivors can access their natural resilience to promote healing. I have a keen interest in Trauma Theory and am committed to validating the effects of trauma on the brain and also providing Psychoeducation around proactive ways to move through the associated grief and loss

Depression, Anxiety, and Mood Disorders

I blend Cognitive-Behavioral techniques, DBT and ACT practices with an exploration of the underlying causes of distress.

 

Habit Change and Goal-Setting

I use motivational interviewing techniques to help people get unstuck from the patterns that trouble them most and make desired changes in their lives.

 

Employment and Career Consultation

I help people recover from job loss, change careers, deal with workplace politics, apply for disability, and address creative blocks.

 

Exploring Identity

I provide an accepting space for discovery in which people can explore who they are, where they’re going, and who they want to be.

 

Anger Management and Conflict Resolution

I teach interpersonal skills and coping tools to help people communicate assertively and improve their relationships.

 

Everyone is welcome!

I am interested in inviting those who may not feel as comfortable in all treatment spaces: members of the LGBTQI communities, members of marginalized groups, those in non-traditional relationships and everyone else who struggles with how to succeed on this planet without forcing themselves to fit in.
