Hi  I'm Andrea Larkins, a Counselling Psychologist  of over 20 years experience in private practice, community settings & schools. 

I know it can feel like a huge step to come and see a psychologist and start therapy so I  will do all I  can to support you to feel more comfortable as you seek to get started.  I work with my clients to establish a warm, respectful and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship  that provides the space and the support to explore current difficulties and relevant past experiences.  

I believe its important to tailor the therapy to meet my clients' individual needs and personality and so I draw on  a range of therapeutic approaches & techniques as needed. 

I work with adult clients of any age group and from a wide range of backgrounds. I am highly experienced in working with a broad range of emotional and interpersonal difficulties. 

I feel it is a great privilege to work with clients who have the courage and commitment to come to therapy and work towards developing  a more authentic and fulfilling life. 

Andrea is a highly experienced Counselling Psychologist who has worked in private practice for 12+  years as well as 10 years in community agencies & the education sector. She has a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from Monash University and has studied and trained for 8 years prior to gaining  endorsement as a Counselling Psychologist. She is a fully registered endorsed Counselling Psychologist with AHPRA and a full Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and the Australian Association of Psychologists (AAPI).
