If you've been diagnosed with ADHD, or suspect you have it, you might be dealing with some struggles - problems at work or uni, conflict within your relationships, difficulty staying on track toward your goals. You might find it tough to keep track of time, remember things, see tasks through to completion, and juggle your responsibilities at work and at home. ADHD affects many facets of life and can feel overwhelming at times, especially if it's a new realisation for you.

With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".

Imagine having the knowledge and confidence to manage difficult thoughts and feelings, navigate tricky relationships, and find lasting meaning and fulfilment!

I work in private practice and as a Senior Clinician in a specialist program in public mental health. My practice focuses on discovering aspects of the mind that are often outside of our awareness and exploring influential events and relationships of childhood, adolescence and adulthood. It assists to gain a deeper understanding of why and how we feel and relate as we do, as adults. This way of working has supported people who deal with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, grief and loss, sexuality and gender questioning, sexual difficulties and issues with intimacy, cross-cultural and identity issues and family issues.

I work with people whose concerns might be about anxiety, grief & loss, depression, relationship difficulties, stress, or complex post traumatic stress (CPTSD). It could be something less defined, vague yet familiar & unsettling. Perhaps you feel disconnected, isolated, or always pressured, rushed, never able to be yourself fully. Maybe something has happened at work, at school or college in your relationship/s, or with a parent or other close family members. Or you have experienced, or are experiencing, family and domestic violence.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 Melbourne, or Child Psychologists in Melbourne.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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.
