Tracey M Coombes
Times are challenging nowadays for both little and big people! These challenges present to us in a myriad of forms across school life, work life and home life. I undertake therapy with children (preschool age and above), adolescents, adults and families in a way that helps all parties understand themselves and each other better. I also feel that young adults (18-30's) often struggle to ask for help around anxiety and depression, therefore I strongly encourage you to reach out and we can have a chat about strengthening your own resources to feel better.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MA, AMHSW
As my ideal client, you are an adult who experienced any form of abuse and/or neglect during your childhood – it might be physical, emotional, or sexual. It might be a few years after the abuse or many years later. What matters, is the fact that it is still causing you problems, preventing you from being the person you think you can/should be. Therefore, your goals are to regain your true/real identity; becoming the best person you can be and have a vision for the future and a purpose in your life – you want to let go the stronghold of the past on your life and your person. You want to become who you were supposed to be.

Paper Crane Of Hope - Counselling for Introverts
Do you sometimes struggle to be understood? As an introvert, INFJ, empath or neurodivergent, you might struggle to feel like you fit in. It can be especially hard when you constantly feel like your energy levels are being drained! You are probably someone who everyone leans on for help and support, yet you yourself don't have anyone to talk to who gets you and hears what you are saying. When you've gone through your own issues- it's important that you have a place to feel heard. What if I was to tell you that I could help? For you to heal from your past, find joy in the now, and to have the courage to dream big dreams for your life.

Elizabeth Eaton Counselling & Parenting Support
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSc, AASW
I believe that we all have the capacity to grow and make changes, even though change can be difficult. Sometimes it can be a little easier when we have someone to walk alongside us to help recognise our uniqueness and strengths. I have a strong commitment to working from a client centred approach; I see individuals as the expert in their own life and never assume to know what is best for them.
The people we support are looking for a way to better understand themselves and the relationships they have in their lives. Often communication has broken down and they feel disconnected from themselves and withdrawn from others. The couples we work with are also experiencing this disconnection and are looking at new ways of being with each other. Our clients are looking for a way to make meaning from their experiences and are supported to decide for themselves if this is the life they want to lead. Our clients are provided with a sense of empowerment & encouragement to keep learning & growing as they navigate life's challenges.

Is online therapy a good option?
Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.
What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
