Dr Gary Wohlman has created a unique form of body psychotherapy over 50 years, specialising w/ people in transition ready to let go of a relationship that's no longer working, as well as patterns of holding back from moving in one's most fulfilling life direction. Guiding clients on a multi-sensory journey to re-set their self talk, online and in person, Dr Gary stretches corresponding muscles in the body while speaking in affirmations in rhyme at the same time - like the whimsical, witty & wise Dr Seuss - which swiftly transforms people's relationships w/ their bodies, partners, communication, creativity & contribution to humanity.

Hi, I'm Ingrid and I am a Counsellor and Art-based Therapist offering Telehealth services. I am a firm believer in the healing power of nurturing, supportive relationships, and the potential for change that they create. I work with individuals who may be going through difficult life experiences, or life transitions, and are needing support in navigating: grief; loss; trauma; identity issues; relationships; mental well-being, or anyone wishing to gain deeper insight into themselves.
Based in Melbourne, I am a psychotherapist and counsellor, companioning people of all ages and stages, and from all walks of life, in healing, growth, and coming home to themselves and their inner wisdom. Some common issues we tend to are depression, anxiety, self-development, life transitions, grief, loss, trauma recovery, and spiritual and existential concerns. Drawing from multiple modalities, I practise with a combination of traditional “Talk Therapy”, Expressive Arts Therapy and Dreamwork, with creative and embodied approaches, through a psycho-spiritual lens. I am guided by my clients and their present moment experiences.
With over 15 years of counselling experience, Jeannine helps clients to make sense of what’s happened, how it’s affecting their lives and what they can do to move forward. She sees clients as people trying to navigate their lives and relationships and not as a collection of symptoms. Taking a compassionate, practical and transparent approach to her counseling she focuses on building a good rapport and working with clients to get the outcomes they are looking for.
I have over 20 years experience of empowering women and young people in a range of settings. I have worked with women in the justice system and welfare environments as well as people working with addiction, trauma, anxiety and depression. I now run my own private practice in St Kilda, focusing on supporting women and young people all in areas of their lives.
Jessica is a clinical psychologist with experience in both private and public sectors, including school, community, and hospital settings. Jessica enjoys working with adolescents/youth and adults with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, life transitions, personality disorders, and emotion regulation difficulties. You may also like to work with Jessica simply to better understand yourself or for personal development, which might include clarifying your values, re-connecting to yourself/others, making an important decision, increasing confidence, or finding meaning & purpose in your life.
Principally as an EMDR and IFS practitioner my work involves guiding clients in healing, and recovery, towards fulfilling one's potential in life. Regardless of the burden, or challenge, from complex trauma, PTSD, personality disorders, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, and addictions, healing is the focus. My work focuses on a compassionate, warm, trauma informed, and person-centered approach, applying evidence-based trauma therapies such as EMDR, IFS, as well as DBT, CBT, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness. All people and their needs are warmly welcomed.
I work with couples and individuals who want to actively engage in change to help them gain insight into themselves and the world, using their emotional reactions, thoughts and feeling. I believe people attain the greatest well-being through self- and other- acceptance. Understanding repetitive unwanted interactional patterns can help people step out of the fray and gain meta-perspective which helps them to make different choices moving forward. I don't work with couples when there are serious issues of power and control, interpersonal violence (physical or emotional). I do not write Court reports or serve as an expert witness.
We are living in very uncertain, stressful times and many people are feeling 'out of sorts' and vulnerable - I'm here to help! It is clear that the world is experiencing drastic changes. If you are feeling down or anxious, or you're struggling to cope with this unprecedented global event (or any of life's challenges), I'd love to assist.

Passionate about the mental health and emotional wellbeing of infants, children, and women living with the effects of trauma, disability or mental health diversity, I work gently and honour the intrinsic capacities of all clients. Clients can expect collaboration and child/client-centred practice emphasising relational attunement, compassion, and trauma sensitivity as the elements necessary for change and healing. Psychotherapy is a process that unfolds over time to build a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. Expressive and relational approaches are used to enhance this process. I see NDIS clients and accept FV FSP referrals
I am a LGBTQIA plus affirmative therapist and work across the adult population with issues related to depression, anxiety, self worth and relationship dynamics. I have an Indian heritage and speak fluent Hindi. Being from a South Asian background and a child of migrants puts me in a position to understand the relational difficulties you might be going through and how to navigate these situations.
I have a special interest in the treatment of trauma, in all its forms. This includes working with PTSD, Complex PTSD, sexual abuse/assault, attachment/relationship issues including family violence/neglect/abandonment; and mood, anxiety and somatic disorders. I believe in a safe, non-judgemental approach where we work together to identify what you are wanting to change and how to go about it, in the least distressing and most effective way possible. I am particularly interested in the use of EMDR, a broad psycho-therapeutic and empirically validated treatment approach for a variety of issues, that can facilitate profound healing.

People often tell me that the reason why they choose to work with me is because they can see that they can be challenged and guided to be the empowered version of themselves, while at the same time feeling safe in the knowledge they are being cared for and supported by a qualified clinical psychologist. I have been a Clinical Psychologist since 2013 and a leadership and life coach since 2009. I am passionate about working with people who are ready to change their unhelpful stories to more empowering and authentic ones.
