My aim is to establish a warm and trusting relationship where you can feel supported, gain new insight, solve problems, alleviate symptoms, and develop your self confidence and sense of purpose. I take an integrative approach tailored to your needs; effective therapeutic interventions are identified collaboratively, and may include talking therapy, experiential approaches, art therapy, walk & talk therapy, etc. I believe real therapeutic change takes time and can offer longer term psychotherapy options to suit your needs and budget.

I'm Leanne from Blue Hearts Counselling. I became a CounselIor to help mums and families with birth trauma healing. I suffered a 4th degree tear and had many operations (ileostomy, reversal) and I know of the far reaching implications (including relationships, finances, mental health, esteem, loss of identity, physical health and even life long injuries and complications) and that's what I help with. I also know how this impacted my own children (eg. sleep issues, separation anxiety) so I also offer a kid friendly space to help build up their confidence and reduce anxiety.

I like to focus my clinical work on helping my clients work out what’s preventing them from getting on with what they want to achieve in life, and supporting them as they overcome those obstacles. Whether they're dealing with a clinical diagnosis like depression or anxiety, unhealthy relationship patterns or severe situational stresses. I strongly believe that whatever a client wants to work on, a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in working towards positive change in any area of life and that's what I aim to provide.

I work with clients across the lifespan (age 4 and above) to address a variety of life challenges, such as managing stress, anxiety and depression, as well as struggles with life transitions. Finding hope and recognising your resources can feel challenging when going through a rough patch. Through therapy sessions, I’ll support you in brainstorming for solutions to overcome your difficulties and celebrate your unique strengths. I also have a special interest in neurodiversity and the female presentation of ASD. Neurodiversity can often bring invisible challenges. Finding the right support from an understanding person is essential.

I understand that it can be difficult to make the decision to see a counsellor, especially when you feel so vulnerable. I am here to listen and gently encourage you to tell your story. I’m interested in finding out what’s happened to you, not what’s ‘wrong’ with you. Counselling isn’t about learning to think positively or exercising greater self-discipline, it’s about starting to really listen to what your instincts are telling you.

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.

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 in Victoria 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.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Victoria psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy 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 CBT, 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.
