Introduction to Sandrock Psychology
Online Psychology Sessions

So, my name is Anita Perigo and I’m going to briefly explain to you how my style of Animal Assisted Therapy, and Art in Therapy translates across into the video sessions that we’re holding today.

Psychology With A Difference

  • Are you interested in an approach to your mental and emotional wellbeing that is a little bit different?
  • No one else knows what is right for you except you. Sometimes it just really helps to have someone else bring some new light to the situation by sharing theories and stories that help other people – then you have a few more ideas and options to approach life from.
  • If you (or a loved one) are dealing with grief, trauma, loss (bereavement, job loss, divorce etc.) or anxiety, stress and depression, new questions and processes around old stories can help in a shift towards healing.

Sandrock Psychology draws on Narrative Therapy, Animal Assisted Therapy, Art in Therapy, and a number of other approaches to collaboratively create space that feels safe, supported, and progressive – specifically for you.

A qualified psychologist with a range of modalities to suit

Sandrock Psychology is led by qualified psychologist Anita Perigo.

Anita understands that all people have their own unique strengths and challenges, and although people can use these strengths to get by, many people need extra support. Anita understands that what we need to move through these challenges is an approach that incorporates conversation and activities that suit each individual person. Anita uses a mix of neuroscience, dogs, art and a good dose of humour to help you achieve your goals. Despite these modalities sounding light-hearted, sessions are facilitated with the utmost respect shown towards grief, trauma and difficult life stories, with your emotional safety being the number one priority.

Anita is a member of the Australian Association of Psychologists inc., Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association, and is registered with the Psychology Board of Australia. 

Anita enjoys working with individual clients and groups. She has enjoyed five years of walking alongside Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander (A&TSI) clients, holds a passion for working with veterans due to being ex-defence force herself, and prioritises a welcoming space for those that are LGBTIQA.

Anita has two areas of her psychology work that she is passionate about bringing to you: Animal Assisted Therapy and Art in Therapy. 

These modalities are used to bring creative, responsive, and evidence based interventions to sessions that may otherwise be stressful, traumatic or just plain boring. 

All of Anita’s interventions are trauma-informed, respect you as the expert on your own life and what is best for you, and are designed to increase your power in your self.  

Interventions may include components of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Grief counselling.

Art in Therapy

Anita often uses art to enhance the work that is being accomplished together. Some modalities such as picture cards are fantastic for people who are shy to create in front of other people, otherwise there are paint and a range of basket weaving materials that are all ready to be used. read more…
