Young Adults

finances, living arrangements, relationships, and family life. Ongoing identity issues continue to occur “I wanted to be married with children at 25 and working full time in my "dream" job, however now I’m 29, single and working a 9-5 I do not enjoy”. Welcome to early adulthood! A period where our brain finally reaches it's peak development, which often results in a greater awareness and understanding of our past, our future, ourselves, those around us and the world.

Happy Couple

During this time patterns of thinking and behaviour originating from childhood may become apparent. Perhaps you start to notice your lack of confidence at uni/work, or feel you are “not good enough”, “a failure” or that you will “never find a partner or a job”.  Perhaps you notice yourself feeling constantly tired, unmotivated and irritable, wanting to withdraw from friends and family or having difficulties with managing your anger.

Our psychologists can help you discover new ways to manage these self-limiting patterns of thinking/feeling and behaving, with a goal to help you become the best version of yourself.

Just when you thought you had survived the toughest period of your life (teenage and adolescence) and thought “it can only be happy days from here”, you are hit with the realisation that with all this new found independence and freedom, comes a surge of responsibilities and new roles, including decisions around your career,

How can we help?

Early adulthood, can be fraught with difficulties, the team at the Mind Clan are very familiar with this. The Mind Clan take broad approach to therapy with young adults. We are aware that "talk therapy" although very beneficial for some clients, can be limited in effectiveness for all. Therefore our therapists also incorporate the use of a range of creative, body-based and experiential approaches to help guide you to experience a deeper understanding of yourself.

In addition to evidence-based talk-therapies, we also

complement these approaches with:

  • visualisations

  • imagery

  • the use of art, music and movement

  • the awareness of your body

  • understanding of mind-body connection
