About Lantern Psychology

Lantern Psychology is located in Deakin, Canberra, and is owned and operated by clinical psychologist, Dr Alison Christie.

The key aim of Lantern Psychology is to help clients to move towards a meaningful and fulfilling life. Acceptance and change are the key principles behind our approach. This usually means helping clients to gain insight into their problems, identifying the things they have the power to change and developing willingess and skills to accept the things that are out of our control. We then focus on helping our clients to build skills and apply strategies to facilitate positive change.

So whether your looking for help to manage clinical symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, for guidance through a difficult situation, or for help to optimise your life, we would love to help you achieve your goals.
