Trauma Counselling and Psychotherapy in Melbourne
Therapy (also known as psychotherapy) and counselling is an approach where we meet people in their struggles and difficulties. The aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to provide a safe, warm, supportive and non-judgmental space that allows your challenges, whether that's mental health difficulties, relationship problems, life changes, trauma, addictions, or any other difficulties that life throws at us to be worked through. We have clinics in a number of locations throughout Melbourne including Blackburn, Carlton, Ringwood, Armadale and more.
Our qualified psychotherapists in Melbourne specialise in:
Gestalt Therapy Practitioners
The psychotherapists in our Blackburn, Carlton, Ringwood, Armadale and other Melbourne clinics are practitioners of Gestalt Therapy, an approach to counselling and psychotherapy that promotes self-awareness, consciousness and authenticity, so that there is an understanding of the human experience in order to live in the present moment. There is an acknowledgement that the relationship between client and therapist is an important vehicle in this process allowing the client to gain new perspectives, increased self-confidence and alternative patterns of thinking and feeling.

"I started seeing Anna earlier this year, and we have already experienced many light bulb moments in our co-related shared space, I feel supported and held during our sessions, as we challenge my core belief that I am unloveable. I continue to find Anna present, curious and empathic as I work towards self acceptance and love"
"When I came across Phyllis, I was crippled with anxiety and depression. I was in such a bad way I could barely function and had to resign from my job. Facing the day was a misery, I had no life or energy and was getting nowhere with more traditional support. Phyllis has been a game changer. She is lovely and supportive and empathic. My health has improved a lot with Phyllis, she is a life saver. I couldn't have done it without her and continue to enjoy huge relief with each of our sessions."
"Phyllis is an exceptionally insightful and dedicated therapist who has come to understand me in a more profound way over the last fifteen months than anyone else I have met in thirty years. Our sessions have created a strong ripple effect across my life that has given me the natural confidence to make wide-sweeping changes previously too overwhelming to even consider. Her sessions are client-guided and she has a number of innovative and powerful tools and strategies that she seamlessly tailors to my requirements at each turn. Our work together is helping me to manage a gradual transformation in my approach to life and relationships that I hadn’t thought possible and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking the same in their own lives."
"I would highly recommend Anna to anyone. Not only is she highly professional but she is very calm, engaging and warm from the moment you meet her. Since seeing Anna a few times, I have my energy and motivation back. Prior to my appointments with Anna I struggled for a whole year, just to complete basic daily tasks due to high levels of anxiety. My anxious feelings are now a thing of the past. I also found it most helpful that Anna didn't just make me do the same 'old' things and go over every detail of my past like many in the health and wellbeing industry do. Anna's techniques were actually new and refreshing and techniques I could do outside of seeing her which I think makes all the difference. Thank you so much Anna, it is nice to feel like my old self."
