I work with clients of all ages to help them achieve goal-focused changes or acceptance.  My private practice is Zenith Psychology and sessions can be at my clinic, off-site or online.
I provide support that helps people cope with their present circumstances and if needed, move closer to living in accordance with their values.  Generally, we learn emotional and other life skills through instruction, modelling, and experience but sometimes life throws curve balls that are outside our range.  It’s in those times that people sometimes need solace or guidance. I help men, women and children experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions and role-related difficulties. I work with those who wish to improve their lives in many domains: anger regulation and expression, parenting, behaviour management, emotional regulation, workplace wellbeing, and stress management.

Bernie McCarthy – Clinical Psychologist – McCarthy Psychology
Contact me on my details below:
Bernie provides evidence-based therapy that is effective for depression, anxiety, anger, medically unexplained symptoms such as headache and other forms of chronic pain (headaches/ migraine, lower back pain, chest and abdominal), fatigue, dizziness, skin problems, gastrointestinal discomfort and hypertension. Symptom relief is usually obtained in the early stages (5-15 sessions) with deeper change taking between 15-40 sessions. The method of the therapy is to actively engage with the person to identify where the internal problems lie, and then recognize how the person experiences these problems. The feelings, anxiety and defenses triggered in the interview with the therapist are identified and this usually results in a drop in anxiety and physical symptoms as the person begins to feel the previously avoided feelings and not employ the usual unconscious defenses. The person engages in a process of healing as the avoided feelings are experienced and worked through.
