The Wellspring Within
Psychologist, PsyBA General
Verified
I would like to assist you with breaking free of the outmoded version of you, the one that no longer fits you, or one that keeps you living in past regrets, anxiety, depression , grief or trauma.
I use a wholistic frame, inclusive of body, mind and spirit in my work as a therapist. I have found that working somatically can be tremendously revealing of inner gems that lay beneath the level of consciousness. They can provide answers, understandings, and can lead to living a fuller life. The use of your spiritual frames of reference in therapy can also bring meaning and can provide leverage for the changes you are wanting to make. You may feel supported to become more whole, self-actualised, self-understanding and accepting of the person you are.

These include Anger and Abusive Behaviours, Substance Use and Addictions, Grief and Trauma, Mental Health such as Anxiety and Depression , and Sexological issues: sexual health, sexual pleasure and sexual concerns including Infidelity.
Clients often want to change their behaviour and improve their lives as well as their relationships. However, fear, trauma and past hurt can cause ambivalence. Counselling can help clients work through the why, how and what of making this change. By using a number of modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centred, Strengths Based and Gestalt therapies, clients can find their way out of the dark. 'Beyond silence, there is always Hope'.

Once you know exactly ‘what’ to do you will quickly regain control, find your feet, and move forward. I have over 30 years experience helping people and have been a consultant in charge of a major hospital Psychology Clinic. I have also worked in an Anxiety Disorder Clinic, and Family Therapy Clinic. This level of expertise allows for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment. I employ practical, tested methods. When you are under stress it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you are powerless, and that this is just the way things are. You will start to believe, “I’m not as capable as I once was"

My priority as a Psychologist is to provide you with an empathetic and reflective space. A space where you feel safe to fully be yourself. A space where you will feel truly seen, heard and understood. I am passionate about reducing stigma associated with mental health. Whether you’re a fourth-generation farmer or a first-time mum, there is no shame in seeking support- giving your emotions space to exist without judgement is so important. You don’t need to keep going above and beyond for others at the expense of yourself- you don’t need to keep “soldiering on”.

Hi, I'm Freya. I've been counselling for over 25 years, and a year ago started incorporating my animals (horses, dogs, cats) into my therapeutic practice. I work with all ages, and the people I work with are as unique as the issues they want to address. My clients are individuals, couples, and children. I have lived experience of neurodiversity (ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, HSP) and consequently work with a lot of people who are neurodiverse themselves. My work focusses on understanding why we are the way we are, combined with techniques that foster change and growth, with the end goal of increased well being and resilience.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Ballarat Central. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
