For National Psychology Week 2015, we invite you in to tell us about yourself. Oh, hang on, no, we invite you to eavesdrop on our conversation with two leading psychologists from Adelaide, Alexandra Frost and Taryn Oak, both of Attuned Psychology in North Adelaide.

Just some of the topics covered include:

  • Dealing with stress, anxiety and well-being awareness at work
  • A reminder that daily alcohol consumption can be a sign of issues that need addressing
  • Find your values through a virtual game like Battleships
  • Having a perspective from the future – a key to mindfulness
  • The costs of always asking others to make decisions for you
  • And we investigate performance anxiety
  • Health anxiety
