Staff and professionals have been working together since 2000 to provide a safe, private, relaxed,comfortable and welcoming environment for the community of the Gold Coast and surrounds with a focus on developmental mental health and wellbeing.
Our team of Mental Health and Allied Health Professionals offer a wide range of experience and approaches to suit individual needs and preferences. Psychologists, psychiatrists and clients work together. The right match is important. A good rapport with your professional is critical. Choose one with whom you feel comfortable and at ease.
Psychologists and psychiatrists who specialise in psychotherapy and other forms of psychological treatment are highly trained professionals with expertise in the areas of human behaviour, mental health assessment, diagnosis and treatment, and behaviour change. Our team works with clients to change their feelings and attitudes and help them develop healthier, more effective patterns of behaviour.
Psychologists and psychiatrists apply scientifically validated procedures to help people change their thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between an individual and a professional. It provides a supportive environment to talk openly and confidentially about concerns and feelings. Professionals consider maintaining your confidentiality extremely important and will answer your questions regarding those rare circumstances when confidential information must be shared.
The Lakeside Rooms also supports the mental health professional community by offering both individual and regular group supervision sessions and continuing professional development events to extensive networks, and we have also participated in the Mental Health Professional Networks.
