Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR therapy is a specialised form of psychotherapy designed to help individuals process and overcome distressing or traumatic experiences. It was originally developed to treat trauma-related conditions, but it has proven effective for various mental health challenges as well.

During an EMDR session, your therapist will guide you through a structured process that involves recalling distressing memories or experiences while simultaneously engaging in bilateral stimulation. This stimulation can be in the form of eye movements, taps, or sounds, and it helps your brain process the traumatic memories in a more adaptive way.

The goal of EMDR is to help you reprocess the memories, reducing their emotional charge and allowing you to gain new insights and perspectives. By doing so, you can release the emotional hold these memories may have over you, and you can experience relief from symptoms like anxiety, nightmares, or flashbacks.

EMDR is a well-researched and evidence-based therapy approach that has shown significant success in helping people heal from various forms of trauma and distress.

Animal Assisted Therapy

Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is a goal-directed intervention in which an animal meeting specific criteria is an integral part of the treatment process. Animals, particularly dogs, are being incorporated into many health settings, including psychology, counselling, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and educational settings like school classrooms. Animal-assisted therapy is designed to promote improvement in human physical, social, emotional, and cognitive function. 


Over the years, research investigating the positive impact that the human-animal bond can have on people of all ages is growing significantly. Animals by nature are non-judgemental and show unconditional love, and in doing so they help to build and strengthen the rapport between therapist and client. Research has also shown that including animals in the therapeutic process can help reduce anxiety, increase relaxation, increase social interaction, increase communication within sessions, as well as act as an intrinsic motivator to attend sessions and engage with the process.


AAT is particularly effective for supporting clients to build social and communication skills, by using an animal's body language to provide direct feedback about behaviour, emotions, comfort levels and communication styles. It is also effective in supporting attachment and relational interventions, and in helping reduce arousal levels when working through trauma responses.


Our clinic dog Tully is working hard towards his accreditation as a therapy dog, and is looking forward to showing off his skills in sessions very soon.


If you are interested in animal assisted therapy, contact us to find out more or to join our waitlist. AAT will be accessible under Medicare, NDIS, and private fees.

Self-compassion workshop

According to Dr Kristen Neff, self-compassion means you are kind and understanding when confronted with difficult thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and experiences, as opposed to judging and criticising yourself.

Our self-compassion workshop explores what self-compassion is, why it's important, and how we can use it in everyday life.
