I am a clinical psychologist currently working in private practice with children, adolescents, adults and families. My therapeutic approach is informed by attachment theory, family systems theory, emotion focused therapy (EFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). When working with children I use play therapy in combination with parent sessions to assist both the child and family to create change and overcome difficulties. I have previously worked in school settings and I have also facilitated therapy groups for social anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder.

I started Next Chapter Health Services so I could work in a way that best suits my clients, working to collaboratively transform their lives and allowing for real, meaningful recovery and change. I am passionate about working closely with those who have experienced significant and complex trauma. I do not believe a one-size-fits-all approach is effective for complex trauma (or anything else). I create custom treatment plans for each client, based specifically on their clinical needs and budget. I firmly believe that what has gone before - our past, our trauma, our pain - does not have to dictate how the rest of our lives play out.

Kirsten is an experienced Psychologist & Child Psychotherapist who specialises in working with adults and children who are experiencing emotional difficulties stemming from traumatic and painful life events. Trauma can profoundly impact on a person’s ability to enjoy life, feel safe and have healthy relationships with those close to them. It can leave people feeling isolated, powerless, hypervigilant and full of shame, and such symptoms can continue long after the traumatic event has ended and may impact on a person's relationships and sense of self at different stages throughout their life.

There is one thing that we are all searching for in life, and that is true happiness. It’s common that we’re unable to achieve this “faraway” dream because we know very little about ourselves. We’re not clear on what our passions are, our fears, our worries and certain aspects of our personalities that may be generating conflicts in the way we interact with the outside world. ​​ What’s happiness for you? Is it having healthy loving relationships? Being successful at work? Finding a partner that brings you joy? Building a family? Travelling and exploring the world? Whatever it is that’s stopping you, I will help you discover.

Therapy isn't just about you feeling better. It's about empowering you in the process of change. This may involve assisting you to develop improved coping strategies, insight into unhelpful interpersonal patterns, adjust unhelpful thinking, improve emotional understanding and your ability to regulate those emotions, become a more effective problem solver, gain greater self awareness, confidence and comfort in your own skin, and to achieve your goals in a way that fits with your personal values.

I have a particular professional interest in working with people who want to improve their self-esteem. Self-esteem is deep and dynamic, touching all aspects of our lives.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do, is begin to understand your own story. You deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning. Sometimes life throws you challenges and they can leave you feeling stuck, unsure of what to do and how to do it but there is hope and you can create a life that lights you up again! I love helping women that have been to therapists before but didn't experience the results they truly really desired and as a result, still feel like there is healing to do on a deeper level.

Michael came to study psychology as a mature age student, completing his studies part time at Swinburne and Victoria University during the 80’s and 90’s. He believes that coaching, counselling or psychotherapy needs to be tailored to each individual. This has led him to develop skills in a number of different approaches over his twenty years in practice. Growing up in a Victorian country town in the middle of last century he experienced both the State and Catholic school systems before serving as an officer in the Royal Australian Navy during the Vietnam era.

My approach to treatment takes its direction from experience, both in the lived sense and specifically in terms of psychoanalysis (having undergone an analysis and formation as an analyst). My practice pays particularly close attention to the person him or herself, the dynamic cultivated in the session, and am far less interested in peripheral issues such as diagnosis.

Online Counsellors
Online counselling is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as Teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video or phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want counselling.

If you're looking for online counselling in Victoria or for a Victoria online therapist these professionals provide online therapy, skype therapy and video treatment.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Victoria 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.
