Women's Mental Health

Helping women through their unique life transitions is something the psychologists at Happy Minds are passionate about. Including relationship difficulties or support with transitions such as relationship breakdowns, divorce, or menopause.

Happy Minds Manifesto

Happy Minds Psychology helps women to flourish by creating meaningful and sustainable positive change. The team at Happy Minds Psychology work with women during the most vulnerable times in their lives, with a particular focus on the perinatal period.

The journey to becoming a parent can be paved with stress, anxiety, and at times, a deep sense of loss. Becoming a parent is a big adjustment and can leave women feeling isolated and judged.

We help women balance the demands of a career and caring for children with their own health and mental wellbeing.

Later on, we can assist throughout the menopause phase and dealing with later life transitions.

As a Positive Psychologist based in Ocean Grove and servicing the entire Greater Geelong region – our job is to help women focus on the positive aspects of their life and health, using that as leverage to create further significant change.

Happy Minds Psychology uses the latest evidence-based psychology and is built on the foundations of positivity, dignity, and family, within a nurturing and compassionate environment.
