I am always grateful for the opportunity to provide support. I am fully aware that the bravery that therapy takes, being vulnerable in session, is immense. I therefore aim to work in a non-directive, client centred style, meaning the client sets their own treatment goals and I am the support that holds difficult or overwhelming emotions where needed. This allows the client to drive their own therapy, giving them full ownership of the positive outcomes and showing them that they can create a better life.

Would you like to let go of feeling 'not good enough' or other painful limiting beliefs? Or perhaps release uncomfortable physical sensations? I have an interest in trauma and how it is stored in our body. I see the role of a therapist as a facilitator- a guide who is able to work collaboratively and provide clarity while maintaining a safe and supportive environment for you to do the work. I have an interest in birth trauma and offer home visits to women requiring support. Our work together will draw from your own ability to heal. I will support you in learning to trust that process. I am intuitive and spiritual in my approach.

Relational Coaching is my personalised approach to helping people get on with one another and with life. I like coaching as a metaphor because it is positive, outcome orientated and has an everyday feel to it. One way of looking at counselling is to see it as a safe place to say what you need to say, to discover ways of saying what you need to say, to have someone hear (really hear) what you need to say, and to help you say it well!

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Hunter Region are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How do I find psychologists in Hunter Region with the specialty experience I’m looking for?

You can refine your search using the filters in the left navigation bar on desktop, or by tapping “refine” on your mobile device. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Hunter Region, or Child Psychologists in Hunter Region. You can also use the filters to see only female psychologists, or gay-allied counsellors

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Hunter Region psychologists specialising in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.


What method of counselling 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 Hunter Region specialise in therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (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.
