LETTER FROM DIRECTORS

Hi there,

After a few years of planning and preparations, as co-directors for Anxiety House Sunshine House, we are super excited to announce that we will be finally open and taking bookings from June 2018!! We have worked together for several years now at Anxiety House Brisbane and the OCD Clinic, and assisted hundreds of clients reach their mental health goals. These clients have included so many amazing clients so committed to treatment they would regularly commute to Brisbane, as such, we decided it was time to open a clinic on the Sunshine Coast. Of course, it does help that Amber lives locally on the Sunshine Coast and has been commuting alongside her clients!

What is Anxiety House Sunshine Coast?

Anxiety House Sunshine Coast (AHSC) is a unique private psychology clinic based in Caloundra with a specific focus on the treatment of anxiety disorders. At AHSC we provide evidenced based treatment for a broad range of anxiety and obsessive compulsive related disorders across all age groups. Our team of clinical psychologists lead the way in providing contemporary mental health care.

We offer a range of evidence-based treatments, including face-to-face assessments and treatment, group treatment, as well as online treatment. We regularly review outcome measures to ensure our clients are improving and if they are not, we modify the treatment plan to meet their expectations and treatment goals.

Why open a clinic focusing only on anxiety?

We decided to open Anxiety House Sunshine Coast because we wanted to focus on one area rather than all mental health problems. We aim to help those who are struggling in dealing with anxiety symptoms and OCD related difficulties. At AHSC we love what we do and we want you to reach your full potential in life!

Can I still be referred to Anxiety House if anxiety is not my only issue?

Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health problems. It is very common for people with anxiety disorders to have other difficulties as life can get very hard when you are battling worrying thoughts. Nearly one-half of those diagnosed with anxiety are also diagnosed with a depressive disorder. Other common co-occurring disorders include: eating disorders, substance use issues, other anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and relationship and work issues. To seek treatment at AHSC the main issue must be anxiety symptoms, but we also treat the other issues that contribute to your overall distress.

AHSC is the result of our shared passion, ideology and drive to achieve the best client outcomes. We look forward to hearing from you, or meeting with you soon.

Best wishes,

Amber Rattray and Dr Emily O’Leary
