Changemakers Counselling & Psychology

Located in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs, Changemakers Counselling and Pscyhology is a small but friendly practice featuring highly qualified and experienced counsellors Doncaster East.

When you consult a Changemakers psychologist you’re in good hands. We realise that everyone is different and that’s why our psychologists will take the time to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.

While each of our psychologists has their own field of specialty, there is a lot of overlap in the conditions we treat, and our approach to counselling and psychology.

Treatment options and approaches

Depending on your particular circumstances, we can offer any of the following therapeutic approaches: in combination or singularly. Your therapist will discuss it with you, however, it all comes down to your diagnosis and which treatments are best applied for your particular condition.

  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • Behavioral therapy (BT)
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Emotion focused therapy (EFT)
  • Existential therapy
  • Interpersonal psycho therapy (IPT)
  • Mindfulness
  • Psycho-dynamic therapy

Some of these therapies may sound daunting, but really they are just technical words for very gentle techniques that can easily be implemented into your everyday life. Don’t allow yourself to make any more excuses; there is a happy and fulfilling life out there waiting for you!
