Approaches To Therapy
Most of our Psychologists at Ikigai Psychology Clinic are trained in multiple approaches to therapy. During treatment, you can collaborate with your psychologist to discuss what therapy may best align with your needs and preferences.
Ikigai Psychology Clinic was founded by Registered Psychologist Tunteeya Yamaoka in 2019. Tunteeya opened her practice as a passion project in a wellness centre in Fortitude Valley before the COVID-19 Pandemic. Unfortunately, during the March 2020 lockdown, the wellness centre closed and moved its location, forcing Ikigai Psychology Clinic to operate online.
Luckily, in September 2020, Tunteeya found a humble suite in New Farm to operate from above a private art gallery that felt like the ideal new home for Ikigai Psychology Clinic. Responding to the growing mental health crisis, In August 2021, Tunteeya expanded her practice, inviting like-minded Psychologists and Therapists to join her clinic.
Tunteeya's purpose for opening Ikigai Psychology Clinic was to provide a safe space for people of all colours and genders to feel comfortable to express themselves and their identity without fear or judgement. Her passion for art, creativity, digital design, travel and culture shapes her unique view on mental health and wellness, focusing on understanding how our experiences in the external world impact our sense of self and identity.
At Ikigai Psychology Clinic, we believe in providing a service that is ethical, professional and sustainable. The reduction of negative symptoms does not merely shape our views on mental health. We believe that mental health is getting to a place where we feel more "alive", including having a clearer sense of purpose and developing long-lasting healthy relationships with our friends, partners, family and community around us.
