Psychology
 

At the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre, we recognise that mental wellbeing is just as important as physical wellbeing. In appreciation of this, we offer a mental health service (private billing) to support people of all ages.

Our Provisional Psychologist, Natalia Hazell, has a background in working with people who are struggling with many complex issues, all at the same time. This is particularly relevant for those of us who are impacted by type 1 diabetes. Using a friendly and strongly empathetic approach, Nat can help you adopt a strengths-based approach to managing the condition.   

Wanting to make some positive behaviour changes, but finding it difficult to stay motivated? Nat’s       client-centred approach, and her use of MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING can be particularly effective if  you are unsure about your capacity to solve your most pressing problems.  Nat can help you explore the problems that are troubling you, and find your own reasons to change.   

 

Nat can also use the skills embedded in COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY to help you reshape your thinking. Use these to scrutinise the self-talk that is so often associated with type 1, and assess what thought patterns are helpful versus unhelpful. 

 

Nat is here to help individuals understand their thoughts, emotions, and strengths so that they reach their unique potential. She is flexible in her approach, and will work in ways that help you find constructive, positive ways to deal with the challenges of living with type 1.
