At Yarra Valley Psychology & Counselling, we pride ourselves on providing a range of services that are informed by the latest knowledge and research. The basic principles of our therapeutic approaches are derived from a framework based on empirically validated models and therapies, with a deeper approach for clients who need to work through difficult childhood concerns.
Our approach recognises that the interplay between biological, genetic, psychological, and sociological factors acts as a determinant of individual behaviour. Importantly, our therapies view most of human life as being guided by emotional forces, which to a varying degree can be regulated by an individual’s ability to think. (Emotional here includes a smorgasbord of automatic responses such as those driven by instinct, genetics, biology, and hormones as well as automatic feeling or sensory responses).
Our psychologists are also trained in Relapse Prevention Treatment approaches such as Positive Psychology. We value treating each client as unique and applying a broad range of skills and knowledge in a manner which best suits each individual client.
