"Hi my name is Leisa Macnamara. I am a qualified Counsellor with a passion for helping individuals and couples. It is my belief that at times certain situations, emotions and struggles can take a hold of us, and can sometimes be difficult to resolve. By ignoring or denying our struggles they can escalate, causing further harm. This is where I would like to be involved, to provide a confidential, safe and comfortable relationship to help, guide and encourage you to make changes to take you to an improved state of wellness. I look forward to working with you, together we can help you to feel better."

"Connection and sexuality is fundamental to happiness and well-being in love and in life. It's an area of life that can be pretty confusing for people though, and difficult to resolve and improve on your own, so it's important to get a professional to help you out. But it's also difficult to find that help - even well-meaning professionals are frequently lacking knowledge and skills to effectively help people in this area of life. I have studied and trained to the highest level to be able to support you to truly gain clarity around your sexuality and your relationships, individually and as a couple. "

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Sydney 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 Sydney 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 Sydney, or Child Psychologists in Sydney. 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 Sydney 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 Sydney 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.
