We all encounter life's difficulties and it shows courage rather than weakness to ask for a helping hand to work through and overcome them. Your situation may Include: Experiencing depression and anxiety, due to a stressful, ongoing or past experience, or an unfathomable occurrence. A transition from one season of life to another ie work/retirement, or a change in workplace. Relationship and communication difficulties with family, marital or other. The need for a compassionate, listening ear and framework to process your grief and loss experience, of a job, pet, limitations through illness/injury or the bereavement of a loved one.

Are you feeling trapped, lost, confused or wondering how you ended up living the life you are living, and what happened to all those lost dreams? Have you suddenly found yourself going through a major life transition through job loss, divorce, relocation, transition into the workforce, birth, death or marriage? Are you confused on your path, your life, and needing clarity on how to get 'back on track' and live the life you planned, not the life you have fallen into? Are you struggling to deal with childhood or adult trauma, and feeling hyper alert, vigilant, anxious and depressed? If so I can help you.

You know relationships are important. When they are not working out, the pain can be overwhelming. You feel stuck because as a trained helping professional you expect more of yourself and your partner. It is so difficult to even begin to consider getting help when you also work in health care or mental health! It is not like you are willing to see just anyone! You know the research tips to improve the relationship, but you just can't seem to apply them at home. That hurts! You understand it might have something to do with a difficult past or trauma but that does not help you to manage the conflict. You start to feel despairing.

Are you constantly struggling and confused with relationships? Seem to be on the "bad relationship merry-go-round", not just one, but a string of them, you feel like there must be something wrong with you or you're just a magnet to attract people that aren't what they appeared to be in the beginning and slowly wear you down until you have little confidence in your choices and yourself. You feel like you're bothering your friends with your problems, then getting their different opinions confuses you even more, you feel like such a failure in the relationship area even though you are successful in most other key areas of your Life

Has your mental health been affected or worsened since the Covid-19 pandemic? Are you tired of feeling anxious, overwhelmed or depressed? Are you struggling to find meaning and purpose in the current sociopolitical climate? Maybe you’ve tried therapy before and are seeking a more holistic alternative to the traditional medical model; diagnoses and medication. Imagine having a place where you could express yourself openly and explore your concerns, without fear of judgement or discrimination, in order to gain insight and awareness into your current situation. My aim in therapy is to create this safe space, just for you.

At Shiloh Within Counselling we know that what you want more than anything right now is to see your adolescent child happy, confident, enjoying life and excited about their future. For that to happen though, you need committed, ongoing support and strategies to help your child overcome continuous low moods and anxious thoughts. The problem is that there are long waiting lists and hours of driving to and from appointments to get help for them, and they don’t want to even leave their bedroom unless it’s absolutely necessary, which makes you feel distressed that your child is in so much pain and missing out on living an enjoyable life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in South Australia 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 in South Australia 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 South Australia with the specialty experience I’m looking for?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. 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 South Australia, or Child Psychologists in South Australia.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like South Australia psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy 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 South Australia specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, 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.
