Do you have that constant nagging feeling of “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t deserve to be successful” or “I have to work harder than everyone else to prove I’m enough.” Do you find yourself arguing with your inner critic and telling yourself “to get over IT” but the “IT” stubbornly keeps you stuck? Do the internal conversations make you feel exhausted? Do you feel embarrassed at the thought of asking for help because that feels like a sign of weakness? Is your inner critic there first thing in the morning and last thing at night – keeping you stuck in a cycle of fear and anxiety? Are you ready to make real & lasting life changes?

Comfort Counselling is a small, person centered, private practice. With a strong focus on supporting individuals through the changes they want to make to their lives. When the changes are forced upon them by their health, people or situations outside of their control it can be challenging to understand what has happened. With deeper understanding and awareness hopefully we can help you find some comfort.

I love to coach women who have decided they want more than what life has currently offered them with relationships and money. She is someone that craves a life with more luxury than she currently experiences. She wants financial freedom but feels stuck and wants to learn more and break through her blocks but she struggles to know how to get it. She is sick of feeling burnout, overworking and feeling undervalued. She wants more, but doesn’t know how. She doesn’t know how to break out of her existing life and really full step into her power.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

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

You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Victoria, or Child Psychologists in Victoria. 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 Victoria 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 Victoria 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.
