Have you been feeling overly unhappy, depressed or anxious? Have you had panic attacks, issues with eating, loss of energy or exhaustion, sexual difficulties, relationship issues? Have you seen a psychiatrist or a psychologist and the treatment didn't "work"? Psychotherapy can help people change old patterns of actions, thoughts, feelings, and relationships. As you gain more self-awareness and self-understanding, you might feel more empowered to make life choices on your own terms. Many people experience not only a reduction of their symptoms, but can live richer and more fulfilling lives, even after they stop going to therapy.

We can all have times in our lives when things can seem unmanageable, whether it is within our family or close relationships, divorce or bereavement, or our health, our work or in coming to terms with difficult events that have happened either recently or in the past , which still don’t feel resolved. You are not alone, as human beings we all have difficult times. It is a brave decision to try to resolve those issues in the best way you can. A counsellor is not there to judge you, or to give you text book solutions. They are there to help and guide you towards the solution that is right for you.

***WAITLIST FULL*** I provide online/video therapy specializing in working with adult individuals experiencing complex, chronic or extreme mental health issues. Such mental health issues arise out of an entangled and sometimes unknown mix of external and internal factors. The impact of our histories and mind states reverberate through all areas of life, and we can become disconnected from the inherent state of health and wisdom within us. I aim to provide clients a space and effective tools for them to reconnect to this internal place of health and wellness, in order to thrive even in the presence of inner and outer difficulties.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Sydney?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Sydney specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
