Trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy & Somatic Experiencing, I have experience working with family violence, trauma, ADHD and emotional regulation, depression and anxiety.
Feeling you need support outside of your family and friends? Not sure about changing some aspect of your life? I work with adults and older teenagers looking for growth or change in their current lives. If a trauma, or event has impacted you, we may understand why it's happened, but sometimes "why" isn't enough. Combining psychotherapy with somatic psychology, we can create the change and healing you are seeking.

Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) is used together with Somatic Experiencing® (SE) and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
The key to successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship you and I develop over time. I know that you need to be seen, heard, validated and be able to trust me. To provide both you, and the clinicians at RMB Psychology a safe working environment, RMB Psychology uses trauma-informed care and practice. This model focuses on providing you with a safe space to explore and understand your life. We ask 'What happened to you?' and we bear witness to your story.

My work is led by trauma-informed and somatic principles.
I am Ru, and I am ACA registered psychotherapist working in Fitzroy North, Melbourne. Psychotherapy moves to deepen our connection with self and with those around us. As a psychotherapist, I hold the relationship as the main space of change, as it is the relationship in which present and past issues emerge. I work with various frameworks to facilitate change and create a greater sense of ease and self-understanding.

Psychotherapist, PACFA
Verified
Somatic therapy may help people experience greater self-awareness and connection to others.
I support people to resolve deeply held patterns of trauma or stress related disorders that play havoc on the nervous system. These patterns and disruptions can often hold you back from fully expressing yourself or reaching your optimum levels of health and vitality. Maybe you have had stubborn health issues or an unresolved trauma that keeps playing out in your personal and professional relationships or you have a burning desire to step out and tread your own path but something is holding you back and you don't know how or where to start?

I bring a combination of tools to our sessions including; narrative therapy, strengths based coaching, somatic awareness and transactional analysis to name just a few.
I help people sort through messy, complicated and stuck experiences. Our world is confusing and complicated (even at the best of times). We often find ourselves stuck, locked or held back by something we don’t fully understand, yet. I bring the best parts of therapy and coaching together. It’s here in this space, that we will make room for clarity, reflection, presence and activating the right kind of change.

Psychotherapist, PACFA

With a strong practice underpinned by neuroscience and somatic trauma therapy approaches, I work towards creating greater tolerance toward uncomfortable sensations that arise out of difficult experiences.
As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.

Louise Cooper and Talking Emotions associates are experienced in Emotion Focused Therapy as well as CBT, ACT and Mindfulness and work with a range of specialist client groups and conditions (anxiety, depression, LGBTI, Parkinson's, relationships, somatic symptoms and trauma).
Our emotions tell a story, they direct our actions. But unless we are aware of how they influence what we do, they can often get in the way. Lou invites you to listen not only to the story that comes from your head, but also to what your body has to say. Developing greater awareness of your emotional experience and the skills to manage it can be the springboard to creating healthier relationships with self and others, and lead to a more productive life.

The main modalities I work with are EMDR, Polyvagal Theory-Based therapy, Somatic and Schema therapies.
Many clients I work with present with symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Some have more complex presentations with multiple diagnoses and chronic health conditions. Most of my clients have experienced some traumas, whether it is a single significant trauma or small repeated traumas such as abuse, neglect, exposure to domestic violence, and disrupted attachment. This inspired my interest in the modalities I use as they are trauma informed interventions. Together we identify and address significant past experiences as well as learn to acknowledge and meet own needs for love, connectedness and a sense of worthiness.

My speciality is using somatic , attachment focused, nature-inspired, expressive therapeutic interventions with womxn in individual online counselling sessions.
Are intimate relationships challenging? Do you notice repeated patterns you'd like to change? Was your childhood more about surviving than thriving? Were you adopted, donor conceived or grow up in foster care? If so, you're 'childhood wounds' may be causing Complex Trauma and attachment insecurity. You are not alone and you don't have to work this out by yourself. Through trauma and attachment healing, we can hear your story, support your nervous system, gently install what was missing, build internal & external resources & security, and enhance secure attachment with others, along with a deeper connection to Self.

I'm a certified somatic psychotherapist, counsellor, mover, yoga teacher & bodyworker. With more than a decade of experience in body-based therapies. I support individuals who are seeking to transform stress, trauma, anxiety, PTSD and depression through a somatic & spiritually-oriented approach to therapy. I use a somatic approach by reducing stress and anxiety physiologically, through changing the autonomic nervous system & discharging trauma and by working with embodiment practices. I work with a non-dual lens that mind, body, spirit are one, that each individual is already whole & supporting the removal of obstacles in the way.

Thinking motivates, or is motivated by, physical action.
