About

Uplift Psychology

Hi, I’m Adam Sadd, Director and principal psychologist of Uplift Psychology in Brisbane’s CBD. Throughout my career, I’ve completed thousands of individual session with clients. During those sessions, I’ve heard that clients are seeking:

  • Practical skills and strategies to overcome their challenges
  • Support to navigate challenges at home and at work
  • To move past unhelpful emotional patterns
  • Freedom from negative mindsets
  • To thrive in both their personal and professional lives

Uplift Psychology was born out of the desire to support people at the intersection between their personal and professional lives, and their mental health. My hope is that with Uplift Psychology, you are able to thrive both at home and at work.

The Difference Between Therapy and Coaching

Although there are some similarities between therapy and coaching, they have distinct differences.

Therapy is primarily focused on relieving individuals from psychological suffering or pain. People who need therapy are typically experiencing reduced levels of functioning and the main goal is healing and recovery. Therapy often involves retrospective discussions and reflections to help clients understand why they are in their current situation.

Coaching tends to be more future focused and is aimed at helping individuals to thrive and excel in their lives. People who seek coaching are typically functioning well and seeking to enhance their lives in some way. Both therapy and coaching utilise evidence-based interventions and provide practical strategies to help clients achieve their goals.
