Theoretically I work from attachment and developmental lenses, as well being influenced by systems and psychodynamic thinking.
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.

In these uncertain times we are faced with challenges that reverberate into every aspect of our being-in-the-world. We must unite with a community spirit that intentionally cares for the ‘greater good’ in the midst of much unchartered territory. But to support one-another, ourselves, and the planet in sustainable ways, we must also attend to our inner lives; nurturing every internal resource of strength and wisdom we possess in helpful ways, with self-compassion. Counselling can help.

Psychologist, MPsych, PsyBA - Couns. Psych.
Verified
In over 20 years as a therapist, I have worked with a wide range of clients and couples with many and varied issues. I work in a way that is strongly client, and emotionally focused. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, substance issues, food disorders, grief, child-hood trauma, uncertainty around sexuality and gender, around identity and self confidence/esteem. I work well with clients who are looking to change their lives and who are open to exploring their issues; to challenge their thinking and to examine what isn't working for them and to take practical steps to shift beyond where they are now.

Psychotherapist
I am an integrative therapist who loves working with people who are willing to be curious about themselves and others. I specialise in a process of somatic integration called Focusing, in which attention is placed not only on thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, but also on the body’s immediate, moment-to-moment reactions and processing. This allows clients to be warmly and safely ‘in company’ with themselves, especially those parts that are difficult to access or listen to. By acknowledging, allowing, listening, and responding to oneself from a place of genuine interest, the opportunities for expansion, ease, and joy are endless.

I'll help you find a way through whatever is bothering you by teaching you a whole different way of relating to your problems that will be a total relief. The changes you make will be lasting, life-enhancing and uniquely yours. You may have never had therapy, or be like many of the people I work with and have seen lots of other therapists before, but nothing has really stuck. It could be a familiar old depression feeling creeping back in, you might be really unsure how you will get through this social isolation period without your eating disorder getting out of hand, whatever it is, I can help.

Hello there! I work as an Integrative Psychotherapist, and absolutely love this process of helping fellow humans to heal and grow through whatever has become stuck or too-much to cope with alone. When clients have breakthroughs in these personal struggles it's very rewarding. I value being honest, collaborative, non-judgemental, and discerning in the therapeutic relationship. Clients often describe me as warm, open-minded, humorous, and caring.

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.

My approach to working with clients is collaborative and caring. I believe that the relationship between a client and therapist is one of the most important factors to successful therapy and building a strong, trusting foundation is key. I really enjoy supporting people to work through the emotional blocks which are preventing them from living their fullest life. The focus of my work is usually around developing an understanding a client's story and their unmet needs, supporting them to meet those needs, develop compassion for themselves, and cope with challenges.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Preston, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
