  • Do you have over-the-top anxiety and panic attacks? Are you looking for effective treatment for anxiety?
  • Do you have a phobia, an intense fear, of spiders, being alone, crowds, dogs, enclosed spaces… anything?
  • Are you a bit nervous or downright terrified about speaking in public, even to a small group of work colleagues?
  • Do you find yourself worrying obsessively and feeling compelled to do things to reduce that worry?
  • Maybe it’s your daughter or son who has anxiety. Is your child more than just a little apprehensive about taking on new challenges at school? Is s/he refusing to go to school, or when they go, you know that they’re very unhappy?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, please call me now on (03)9687 2083 for your first FREE 15 MINUTE consultation by phone.  Normal sessions are 50 minutes long.  I offer some sessions outside normal business hours.

Money Back Guarantee

You don’t see that too often, do you?

Based on many years working with people who have all types of anxiety, including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) I’m so confident that I can help you to conquer your over-the-top anxiety, that I offer a money-back guarantee.

You can’t ask for better than that, surely!

Many of you have been to counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists and you’re still being gripped by inappropriate adrenaline rushes. In other words, their treatments didn’t work. Regrettably, there are no trusted and agreed ways that measure the outcomes from individual therapy. There’s no list for you of therapists that get consistently good results. Nor is there a list of therapists who have below par results. In relation to my own work, I’ve monitored my work and my outcomes over years. Based on my data I know that what I offer is a state of the art combination of the best, proven, therapies to let you escape from your habits of fear so that you can be happier and more at ease. That’s your birthright. Being happy is also your first duty to your self.

If after five sessions with me, you’re not at least 90% happy with your progress, I’ll give you back the money you’ve paid. Everyone takes a different path out of anxiety, but five sessions is a good point at which you can judge your progress. If you’re not happy, you get your money back.

So call me. You have nothing to lose and freedom from those uncomfortable feelings to gain.

Proudly gay-friendly practice

In years to come, it won’t be necessary to make the point that this is a gay friendly practice . Gay and lesbian people have problems with anxiety in all its forms.  They sometimes have added concerns around their sexual identity in a world that is still homophobic and not many people escape relationship and family issues.

With Skype™ we’re only a computer click away

Unless you live close to Yarraville, travelling to and from appointments can add hours to your time seeking help, even out of peak hour.  For everyone, travel makes your consultations with me more expensive  unless you’ve found free petrol or free public transport. If you do opt for online consultations,  you still get the help you need. Many of my clients opt for both.  They pop in a Skype™ session from time to time and a face-to-face consultation when that suits.

Online sessions are essential for people who live interstate or in rural Victoria.  Quite often, you’re looking for someone who specialises in your particular problem and you can’t find that help locally.  In the 21st century, we can consult online.

Some of my clients seeking anxiety treatment have such high levels of agoraphobia and other phobic anxieties that they can’t leave home to get that help.  Again, telephone and online sessions are ideal.

Anxiety Treatment, Yarraville

If you experience anxiety and/or panic attacks, I can help you to change the patterns that cause that automatic fear reaction.  Many clients require six to ten sessions of anxiety treatment to overcome panic attacks, phobias and other anxiety issues.

I provide general anxiety treatment as well as for more specific fears like public speaking anxiety, fear of spiders, dogs, snakes and social anxiety.

If you worry constantly and feel compelled to do things – checking that you have turned off that iron, locked the door, washed your hands – you may have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).  Alternatively, you may just be a person who is slightly over-anxious.  Either way, I can help.

I specialise also in helping you to find your solutions to more harmonious relationships, including family therapy. We’re all so good at creating conflict, little niggling triggers that are so annoying that we’re in another bit of bickering before we know it. Great at creating the conflict but not skilled or experienced in the communication skills needed to resolve it. Based on years of experience in conflict resolution, I can help you to find the solution to your problem. When I can’t, I refer you to one of my specialist colleagues.

Yarraville location

My consultancy is conveniently located close to public transport.

Conquer your Fear of Public Speaking

Many people only have anxiety, worry or fear when they have to do public speaking. That anxiety, sometimes called performance anxiety or public speaking anxiety, is easily treated via my one-on-one coaching sessions. I also offer group seminars in venues all around Melbourne.

Why I offer your first 15 minute phone consultation free.

In that short no-obligation first consultation, I can gain a better understanding of what problems or challenges you’d like to resolve. We can then discuss how we’ll work together to find the solutions to those problems. If your issues are outside my skillset I can refer you to others. If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your doctor, you’ll need to seek out a Psychologist rather than me. My services are not covered by the fee rebate you’ll get via a Psychologist. That’s partly related to the fact that counselling and counsellors are not yet viewed by government as a genuine, cohesive profession with agreed minimum standards of four years’ training – either as a stand-alone course or a one year diploma post a Degree course.
