Are you forever in dread of the doorbell? Do you feel overwhelmed by the way you’re living and wish you could let go of possessions so you can live a full life with less? Or are you ready to let go of a lost loved one's things but don't think you have the ability to handle the raw emotions it will raise? At times our possessions provide us with comfort, remind us of people who have past through our lives, or help us feel in control in a world of chaos and constant change. However, if you are spending hours of your day dealing with, thinking about, or accumulating possessions instead of doing other valuable activities you need help.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

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

How do I find psychologists in Elsternwick with the specialty experience I’m looking for?

You can refine your search using the filters in the left navigation bar on desktop, or by tapping “refine” on your mobile device. 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 Elsternwick, or Child Psychologists in Elsternwick. You can also use the filters to see only female psychologists, or gay-allied counsellors

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Elsternwick psychologists specialising in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.


What method of counselling 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 Elsternwick specialise in therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (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.
