Counselling in Melbourne
Is there something holding you back from being the person you want to be? Do you feel as if you’re playing tug-of-rope between a fear of failure and feeling like you’re too tired to be productive? Do you feel too much, yet at the same time feel quite numb? Do you want to have friends, but are terrified at the idea of socializing? For even considering counselling sessions as a way to accept that you might be suffering from anxiety and/or depression, you are already so brave.
Through therapy, you can gain a partner in learning more about what makes you behave the way that you do. You can gaze into your internal world, face your deepest grievances, recognize your hopes and dreams, and from there, allow the doors to your self-exploration open. Depression and anxiety have a number of root causes, and my counselling sessions in Melbourne, combined with other therapy tools, can help find those causes and weed them out into the open, where we can study them objectively.
Traumatic memories can be carried in the body and brain as a patchwork of emotions, behaviors, and feelings. With an integrated approach to therapy that includes psychology, Reiki, and meditation, I want to help you realise that you are not your trauma, or your anxiety and depression. You are so much more. You are important, and your feelings matter. Your story needs to be heard.
What Therapies Might We Use?
Throughout my years as a counsellor, I’ve worked with many different people and realised that you each have the power within yourself to change your circumstances. Working with a professional who can support you along the way is an essential part of the healing process.
I have extensive experience using evidence-based psychological therapies, such as:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Internal Family Systems (IFS)
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to treat trauma and PTSD, anxiety, and depression
I do not believe there is only one path to wellness, which is why I also integrate holistic-based therapies such as Reiki and Meditation. Through the healing powers of both Reiki therapy and Meditation, you have the opportunity to benefit from both the traditional psychology methods, as well as mindfulness and other holistic therapy in order to achieve well-rounded results.
Is Therapy Right for Me?
Do you want to improve your life? Are you ready to take the time to work deeply on yourself? Counselling and treatment can address a range of issues, including:
- Trauma and childhood trauma
- Grief and bereavement
- Workplace issues
- Eating disorders
- Life difficulties and transitions
I know that looking deep into yourself can be challenging, but the benefits are incredibly beautiful. I am a registered psychologist in Chile and a registered counsellor in Melbourne. I run my practice from Natural Forces on Ormond road in Elwood, Melbourne, and I’d be honoured to work with you.
Online Counselling Sessions
As I’m currently based in Melbourne, Australia I provide online counselling sessions for those who cannot reach me in person using Skype. For some people, online counselling allows them to feel more relaxed and safe as they’re having the session from their own home.
