As an Art therapist/Counsellor I work in relation to your needs and goals, in a safe non-judgemental space. During a session, I will check in with you to see if there is anything you would like to share or express. I will share a little about myself to help begin the therapeutic relationship. There is no need to be nervous or worry about being artistic as this is not necessary at all. I can help you work through issues with the healing power of this truly magical therapy. All you need is an open mind and a little curiosity, the sessions are totally driven by you, which means you can participate in the therapy at any stage.

I work with children and young people to help navigate the challenges they may face in life including family conflict, parental separation, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, peer pressure, bullying and low self-esteem. Every child reacts differently to challenges they are facing and therefore I tailor therapy to best suit their individual needs. My aim is to help your child express their thoughts and feelings and provide them with strategies to cope better with the changes and challenges they are experiencing. My area of expertise includes trauma, depression and suicide prevention, family issues, self-esteem and anxiety.

For any individual attending counselling, it can be quite a vulnerable and challenging experience. My aim is to ensure that you feel comfortable and safe from the beginning and to demonstrate that in sessions there is no judgement nor negativity, but rather a collaborative approach towards the goals you want. This may include improving mood, self-esteem, motivation, coping styles or gaining understanding and awareness of your own mental health. Counselling for me is about unconditional support to ensure we are actively discussing aspects of your life that may be impacting you, with therapy tailored specifically to you.

I am a strong advocate for breaking down social taboos surrounding mental health. The personal mental health journey can be isolating, and the individual can often feel alone, unaccepted and excluded. My aim is to understand their issues and legitimise their experiences, creating an environment where they feel safe, can express their needs and identify their goals. My focus is creating a strong therapeutic alliance, resulting in a tailored treatment plan.

Managing stress and changing behaviour is a complex matter. It can be even tougher when you try to do it alone. My clients are looking for the tools to manage their situation effectively and bring about positive behaviour change and improved performance. The people I work with want the power that comes from combining the best elements of coaching, positive psychology with the best therapeutic practices, including both traditional and state of the art methods. They want both coaching support and clinical expertise to help them cope, build their resilience and ultimately thrive across a range of complex situations and experiences.

Lisa is a Counselling Psychologist who is warm, approachable and has worked with people facing all kinds of difficulties. Lisa enjoys assisting people to close the gap between where they are now and the life they really want. This may involve fostering self-compassion, dismantling a sneaky inner critic or exploring long-held family patterns contributing to people-pleasing and self sacrifice. Lisa assists people who are feeling 'blah' and 'meh' to move towards fulfilled and thriving. This occurs through reconnection to self, sometimes after years of conditioning and "shoulds" from others and society.

I recognize that seeking help can be a difficult step. You may have lived with emotional and personal difficulties for a long time. Alternatively, you may be navigating an important transition in work or personal relationships or change in your mental or physical health. My work focusses on assisting clients to understand the source of their distress or uncertainty and move toward a life that is more fulfilling. Using trauma informed practices, together we navigate challenging transitions, acknowledge grief and anxieties and make sense of patterns and choices. Together, we work toward making practical changes.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Lilydale?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Lilydale 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.
