Seeking therapy is never too early or too late in life. Most of us develop skepticism and may avoid therapy. In the majority of cases, however, you will find that through therapy you can improve your life and relationships, as well as control and comprehend your anxiety. You will be able to alter unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as substance abuse and sexual validation. There is no requirement to return, but there will always be a genuine desire to assist you with your issues.

As a registered counsellor, I work with people whose concerns might be about anxiety, depression, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, stress, their emotions, grief & loss, 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 .

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.

Hello. If you’re searching for a new and effective way of coping with stress, burnout, anxiety or complex trauma recovery, third-wave psychology might be the secret ingredient you’re looking for (mindfulness combined with traditional talk therapy). Maybe you’re suffering the horrible confusion and pain of narcissistic abuse or bullying. I can help. I have lived experience and in-depth understanding of what you’re going through. I’ve published a book, a podcast, blog and recently a short article in Australian Counselling Journal.

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.

People living with trauma or autism typically show a cluster of symptoms: general anxiety, social anxiety, poor anger management, emotional dysregulation, relationship challenges, avoidance, poor sleep and substance abuse among others.
Many people sometimes struggle to understand their emotions and behaviour - maybe they get angry too easily, or become upset for no apparent reason. Other people are often well aware of why they need some mental health support, due to historical and / or current problems. I always ask clients: "What do you want to be different in your life when our work is done?" The client's answer may be specific or vague, surprising or long-known to them. Either way, I can help you answer those and many other questions - but only if you truly want to overcome the mental health challenges that stop you from behaving like the person you want to be.

The counselling services enable clients to gain insight into their thoughts, feelings and behaviours via approaches which include talking, reflecting, and mindfulness. I build a collaborative working relationship with clients, sensitively tailoring the support to meet specific needs. Creating a ‘therapeutic alliance’ is where clients feel safe and supported to explore difficult situations, and understand emotions, reactions and responses. The therapeutic alliance provides opportunities to talk through, find resolution and work towards making the desired changes to improve wellbeing while facilitating personal growth and development.

Dr Gerschman's approach goes beyond talk therapy by providing a structured, skills-based program for treating current symptoms and promoting enduring resilience. Imagine having the knowledge and confidence to manage difficult thoughts and feelings, navigate tricky relationships, and find lasting meaning and fulfilment!

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
