Announcement icon I have moved my therapy and clinical supervision sessions to ZOOM and phone and it is working well. Call to arrange an appointment.


I specialise in developing an understanding of and treating children, adolescents and adults struggling to cope with challenges related to the past. I treat behavioural difficulties, emotional dysregulation and a broad range of presentations due to complex trauma. I have a particular interest in early life experience and the impact on attachment relationships. I am referred patients through Psychiatrists, Paediatricians, GPs and families seeking an alternative treatment to the usual medication focussed response to ADHD, ODD and ADD presentations and abuse. I undertake psychodynamic assessment and treatment that gets great results.
I adopt a trauma informed approach to therapy and treatment and provide expert consultation to the mental health sector in the promotion of a psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I undertake assessments that uncover pathways to psychological health previously obscured from view. See more of my experience and expertise at
I am interested in supporting one to explore and understand how the past has shaped the present situation. I help one to see the impact of the past, with a focus on uncovering one's unconscious belief systems, dynamics, patterns and expectations and their origin and how these effect both personal and professional relationships and one's sense of self.

Therese Raulin's Groups

Therese Raulin & Associates

Therese Raulin & Associates offers clinical psychodynamic group process and individual and group supervision to both the government and non-government sector. We have experience working across DHHS, Child Protection, Salvation Army, Youth, Family and Community, D&A, residential services and mental health. We design, and deliver professional learning to build organisational capacity whilst minimising the impact of vicarious trauma. We shed light on the harm done to the organisation and it’s people by the dysfunctional unconscious motivation driven by trauma that has infiltrated the system due to not being addressed and processed and how it compromises the effectiveness and health of the organisation.
