Wollongong

Wollongong is seaside city located in the Illawarra, NSW. It is a 82 kilometres drive south of Sydney. Wollongong spoils its residents with the most amazing beaches, mountains and parks to explore. For this exact reason, we have chosen Wollongong as one of our locations to practice walk and talk services in.

 

Our Wollongong Psychologists are down to earth, easy going and can assist with depression, anxiety, anger management, couples counselling and family therapy, just to name a few. They will make you feel at ease in your first session and allow you to dictate the pace; of the walk and the session! In our Wollongong location, you can choose to kick off your shoes and take a barefoot walk on the beach or leave them on and take in the scenery as you walk along the pathway, private and secure park areas and strolls along the ocean.

Meeting point 

Here is a map of where you meet your psychologist in Wollongong, but don’t stress, they will give you a call the day before your session just to introduce themselves and to let you know exactly where you will find them! They will also remind you of any documents that you will need to bring along to the session, but most of all, they will make you feel at ease about the exciting journey you are about to go on!

Sarah explains her favourite part of the role:

Sarah is experienced with depression, anxiety, stress, goal setting and motivation. She began her career in corporate psychology where she gained experience in team dynamics, workplace stress and grievances and performance management. Making a move to a more personal setting, she joined a team of experts from different fields looking to support and educate people wanting to improve their overall health, both physical and mental. This experience inspired her to view mental health treatment more holistically and brought her to Walk Different. Sarah strongly believes in the benefits of outdoor therapy and the opportunities to let go, learn and connect that come with it.
