Psychologist Elsternwick | Counselling Elsternwick Therapist

Elsternwick Psychologist welcomes Ronnie to the Counselling Elsternwick Centre.

Psychologist Elsternwick Says Psychotherapy Counselling in Elsternwick is deeply needed 

Life can be incredibly stressful, unpredictable, and even incapacitating at times. When a person believes that they do not have a hold on their life or their emotions, it can be incredibly hard on that person’s mental health. The most difficult part, however, is when they feel as if they have to go at it completely alone. 

Counselling offers a way to navigate complex, emotional problems that may be difficult to work out on your own, especially when you are stuck in negative thought loops. When a person is able to explore their reasons behind certain thoughts with a counsellor who is trained in noticing emotional and behavioural patterns and asking the right questions, this person can receive valuable insight in ways to heal their problems and to stop this negative thinking. And we also offer counselling in Elsternwick and of course, video counselling is also available.

Is the Elsternwick Counselling Centre Right For Me?

Counselling can be beneficial to anyone that may be struggling with understanding their thoughts and behaviour patterns, or emotions.

Counselling can drastically improve a person’s way of life, even if they do not have a serious mental health issue, by simply helping to organising their thought processes and finding ways to regulate their emotional response patterns.

Something else to consider is if you’re a near the Counselling Melbourne Clinic, just because of the convenience.

If not, or if you’re busy, Ronnie also provides counselling around Melbourne, as well on zoom if distance is an issue.

David, a Psychologist Elsternwick veteran, stands by Ronnie’s psychotherapy practice due to his Somatic therapy approach. 

 The Elsternwick Counselling Approach

Though much of counselling aims to understand the external causes that lead to a certain emotional or behavioural response, there are often underlying physiological components that can lead to a person’s distress. For example, racing thoughts could be coupled with a quicker heartbeat, or negative thoughts could coincide with a lower-body temperature. Counselling at Elsternwick uses this psychological and physiological approach to its counselling in a practice called somatic therapy.

What is Somatic Therapy?

Somatic Therapy is a practice that targets underlying problems in the nervous system by helping the patient become more aware of their inner landscape.

In therapy, this practice is called  interoception and proprioception, or getting a patient more attuned to their physical state–whether that be contentment, fear, anxiety or even being hot or cold. Combining this practice with talk therapy, patients are able to gain a deeper understanding of their whole self and recognise physical reactions that may align with certain styles of thinking.

This in turn helps patients become more aligned with themselves and present in the moment, and consequentially, able to realise negative thought patterns. 

How Will Counselling Help Meet My Specific Needs?

Ronnie’s use of somatic therapy is shown to help individuals dealing with any number of mental health issues, including but not limited to:

Ronnie is also able to help those dealing with struggles involving their sexual identity, relationships, and adolescence.

Ronnie is a well-rounded therapist and is committed to treating each patient as a complete individual with entirely unique and specific needs.

Ronnie works hard to understand the past trauma and psychological history of every person that seeks his care in order to best support them and offer accurate guidance.
