Children and Teens present more with anxiety, depression, cutting or anger outbursts, which needs to be addressed before they slip into a self-destructive suicidal spiral.
Psychotherapy is the confidential process where you can get insight from an experienced registered Psychologist in understanding how life-stressors can interfere with your thinking patterns, feelings, beliefs, needs, behaviour and relationships. Prolonged exposure to stress, unhappiness, conflict, trauma, abuse or problematic relationships can lead to anxiety, depression, grief, anger or other behavioural problems. Brain research clearly indicated that early psychological intervention can prevent mental and physical illnesses. Clients now have the opportunity to be proactive and learn the skills on how to protect their mental health, restore their competence and happiness and develop a strong sense of well-being and resiliency.

You can’t relax and every minute of your day is filled with racing thoughts, worry and maybe even feeling down. Certain places and specific times of the year spark memories that feel overwhelming. Social situations feel like too much and you find yourself repeating actions that you feel compelled to do, even if it doesn’t seem to make sense. You have lost interest in things you used to enjoy, and you have pushed people out of your life. If you are ready to make a change, you have already taken the first step!

We are human and challenges arise for each of us. Counselling can be a means of support a way to heal from past experiences and to plan for the future. There are many reasons people access counselling. The most common reasons are: depression or anxiety, relationship issues, social isolation, body issues, motivation, parenting, substance use, a traumatic experience, academic challenges, an inability to identify feeling, and needing to talk to an impartial person. The list is quite diverse and these are only the most common reasons. I am here to work alongside you and draw from my professional experiences and training to bring more balance, joy, and health into your life.

Self-Harming Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Victoria or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Victoria counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Victoria. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Victoria, psychologists, and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Victoria or treatment for self harming.
