If you're suffering from anxiety, it can feel like your stomach is always churning, your mind is constantly racing and you feel like you’re out of control. Your anxiety can show up in different areas of your life and at different times. Maybe it’s in your everyday life, or it shows up in your relationships, with money, or your work. It makes it hard for you to concentrate, to be present with people you care about and to enjoy the things you like to do. At times you feel overwhelmed and stuck like there is no way out of this feeling and you wish you could just go to sleep and wake up and the anxiety be gone.

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. Louise 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.

Many of us feel anxious about the future and regret aspects of our past. We can also spend a lot of energy trying to control things that are not actually within our control. At the same time we can feel that things that we have no power over states of mind such as panic attacks or phobias. We can feel anxious about feeling anxious! We want to live the best life we can but we're just not sure how to do that. Chronic anxiety, shame and anger are barriers to finding solutions for the best way forward, for being the best versions of ourselves. We want someone to hear our stories and know us for the person we really are.

It gets full-on at times. Life feels demanding, people seem harsh or confusing, the hurt feels overwhelming, and the answers seem so far away. Other times, you’re left wondering what the point of it all is, and whether there is more to life. I want to help however I can. Helping people to understand themselves, navigate relationships, perceive the world more clearly, and discover meaning in life brings me great joy. Even better is helping people find their own innate resources to cope and to heal.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in South Yarra 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 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 South Yarra with the specialty experience I’m looking for?

You can refine your search using the filters in the left navigation bar on desktop, or by tapping “refine” on your mobile device.

You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in South Yarra, or Child Psychologists in South Yarra. You can also use the filters to see only female psychologists, or gay-allied counsellors

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like South Yarra psychologists specialising in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.


What method of counselling 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 South Yarra specialise in therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (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.
