Psychologists inspiring you to face life’s challenges courageously

Not The Easy Way is a psychology service led by chartered psychologists Dr. Peter D’Lima & Dr. Claire McGuiggan. Life is a series of challenges. Some challenges may feel like fun, eye-opening, uplifting adventures. Some may feel like frightening, arduous, and overwhelming burdens. When challenges feel hard and life gets tricky, we can tend to shy away from the challenge and choose an easier path, which can protect us from the difficult feelings the challenge provokes. We work with school settings, organisations, and businesses to develop systems in which all are encouraged:


● to speak about & address the challenges they encounter ● to aspire towards a meaningful life & ● to take action in bringing about change for themselves & others.
