Melbourne Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling


An embodied philosophical approach encompasses therapeutic recovery-oriented support programs such as individual counselling, family counselling, recovery support programs and educational, therapeutic group work programs for individuals living with chronic illnesses, complex mental heath conditions and psychosocial disabilities. A family systems, life span approach including working systemically provides a framework to understand the person-in-environment context.  This multi-focussed approach includes knowledge of human functioning and behaviour, mental health conditions, psychiatric treatment and psychosocial recovery models, including how socioeconomic, legal and cultural factors interact and impact on individuals and their families across the lifespan.  An improved psychosocial disability stream considers the lived experience of those living with psychosocial disabilities, mental health practitioners and services which provides holistic, innovative recovery treatment programs to support integration towards independence and positive well-being. It is on this premise that the following psychosocial supports are offered:​
