We can plan the best way to work through any issues that you may wish to discuss so that you can own your life again. Hunter Psychology was set up in 1996 by Dr Maryann Gauci who has worked as a psychologist since 1993. Prior to working in private practice, Maryann worked at the Hunter Area Health Service and at Lingard private hospital. Since then Hunter Psychology has expanded and over the years we have had many psychologists and specialist counsellors join us.
Psychology is the science of studying the mind and our behaviour. It is a medical profession and registered psychologists are qualified with advanced university degrees and many years experience working with clients. Psychologists attempt to understand and interpret the interactions of people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Every person is different and your psychologist uses all of their training, knowledge and experience to find the best way to help you achieve your desired outcomes. Psychology is different to psychiatry in that Psychiatrists are medical doctors who have undergone extensive additional training and are empowered to use pharmacological treatments (prescribe drugs) in addition to counselling and psychological processes.
