Balanced Living Psychology is the vision of Principal Psychologist, Christina Farrell. We are a compassionate practice that is dedicated to helping you navigate through your challenges. We specialise in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychological and mental health problems. Working with adults, teenagers and families to understand their specific issue and circumstances. Using the available evidence-based techniques and therapies to develop intervention strategies tailored to best help each individual client.
Even though life looks good on the surface, my clients often have a sense of unease, feel like something is wrong with them and can't understand why the same patterns and symptoms keep showing up in life. They feel stuck wondering if this is 'just their lot' in life, and that circumstances are controlling them. They may have kids that are getting older and a little more independent which also has them questioning 'is this all life has to offer?' They want to feel stronger, to feel empowered and make great life decisions, but low self esteem and every day demands of life have left little time to explore this.
I am warm, open and experienced Doctor of clinical psychology who works with all sorts of issues, big and small, from life adjustment issues to mental health difficulties. My focus is on mental health wellness. I work with proven psychology treatments for mood and relationship issues for all ages, including couples. I aim to treat each client as an individual with their own unique biology, personal history, strengths and areas for change, utilising a collaborative approach to provide your own program of evidence based intervention.
I am passionate about supporting clients in their healing process through assisting them in learning more about themselves and developing new ways of coping with present and past challenges. I am a warm, supportive, caring, and compassionate psychologist and I believe each client is unique and therefore requires a tailored treatment strategy to achieve their therapy goals.
We all have a right to help with our lives, without judgement; further, few people have endless funds, so my sensitive yet honest feedback, will make a difference quickly. I work with people of all ages, with many different issues, and I specialise in complex cases and long term therapy. I look forward to hearing how I can help you.
Many of my clients describe a sense of disconnection - from their partners, from themselves, and from the world around them. This is sometimes expressed through anxiety or depression, or addiction, or a breakdown in a relationship. By working with me you can find the sense of peace and calm that we all strive for.
I am a calm, compassionate, and non-judgmental individual and couple therapist. I work to develop relationships of deep trust and understanding with you. I have a great deal of experience helping people overcome complex and persistent problems. I will never give up on you. I will hold the hope for you even if you are feeling discouraged or hopeless. As a nurse practitioner as well as a psychotherapist, I can prescribe psychotropic medication if needed. I can provide medicare rebates for every session because I am also a nurse practitioner.

You are infinitely more than your mind. If you’re wondering if there’s more to healing than just talking about problems, welcome to body-mind therapy. A somatic approach satisfies our intuitive knowing and deep curiosity by actively tapping into the connection between mind and body to ease suffering, and build resilience. Through safe therapeutic relationship, loving presence, and gentle guidance to access our whole being, together we re-pattern unhelpful early imprints. When we invite all of ourselves to show up and heal in a safe space, our strength and capacity for joy expand.
