Our practice is about listening carefully which is the largest part of what all counsellors do. Can I have counselling even though I may not have major issue? You do not have to be in crisis or on the verge of one before choosing to have therapy. Counselling can help if you are currently struggling to overcome a particular issue in your life, and you feel that counselling could possibly benefit you right now. What can I talk about with my counsellor? You can talk about anything that is on your mind regardless of how large or small the problem and each session is yours and there is no right or wrong in relation to what you say.

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counselling) Counsellors
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Geelong can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counsellors in Geelong help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Geelong Counsellors work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Geelong all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Geelong academic counsellor or school counsellor will provide the individualised attention and support a student needs to succeed.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

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