"Becoming a mother - whether its the first time or not, can bring with it many emotions. Most of the time they are positive, however for some women, this can go from being the most incredible time in their lives to feeling like the worst. There are many reasons - all very different to why mothers can feel this way and that is what we explore in therapy. The good news is that conditions such as Postnatal Depression/Anxiety etc can be treated. With the incidence of mental health challenges increasing, the one thing I can guarantee you is - that you are not alone.......We can work through this together."

Sometimes, it helps to take stock and do some deep inner work around what we are facing or what we have been through. Working in a therapeutic relationship that is safe and secure can help us along the way. With wisdom and intent, we seek to understand ourselves, heal at a deeper soul level, gain insight, process experiences, take action, integrate our various archetypal aspects and grow in consciousness. As a therapist, I join with you on your journey in healing. I work both therapeutically and metaphysically, online and face-to-face."

"Going to therapy takes guts. Often, it takes a person, or a couple, years to move from contemplating therapy to booking a first appointment. It’s not an easy process. But, what you get out of therapy is directly related to what you put into it. And I will match your dedication with mine. The process of healing and recovery is also one of becoming and realising. Therapy is self-development at its most satisfying. Yes, it takes courage, effort, and, often, a leap of faith. But, if you are ready to give yourself the gift of therapy, I am here to take that leap with you."

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Penrith, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

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