Geelong psychologist services

Helen Handsjuk is a registered psychologist in Geelong who applies dynamic, medically substantiated, psychological interventions for a variety of presentations.

Undertaking counselling with an experienced family, child and adult psychologist provides you with an opportunity to talk with someone to help you identify, understand and gain new perspective on issues that are concerning you, in a supportive, respectful and confidential environment.

People attend counselling to discuss relationship issues, conflicts with other individuals or friends, separation and loss, parenting, anxiety and depression, stress and trauma, sexual problems or issues arising from sexual abuse.

It could be that you are keen to work with your Geelong psychologist in finding meaning and purpose in life, as well as clarifying direction. This can include direction in your work and career, as well the course of your life in a more general sense.

You can attend counselling as an individual, as a couple, or as a family. As a child psychologist Helen also sees children either by themselves or as part of the family group, always with the full permission of the parent/s.

For further information, you can send an email, or telephone on (03) 5229 8021 or 0414 681 023.
