Dr.Wendy Li, CPsychol, Counselling Psychologist, EMDR & CBT Therapist
The Consulting Rooms

I have a Doctorate in Psychology in Counselling Psychology, learning various therapy approaches, coupled with psychological scientific research and clinical hours. I am also Qualified as a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist (CBT) prior to my doctoral training and prior to this trained in the Person-Centred approach also. I am also EMDR trained, specializing in working with complex trauma and dissociation. I work in a pluralistic/integrative way which is adapting these models to suit your needs.
I have had a range of clients ranging from depression, relationship issues, self-identity issues, student-life difficulties, anxiety, stress management, anger management, assertiveness training, addictions, sexual abuse, bereavement, phobias, trauma, sexual issues, post-traumatic stress disorder - PTSD, disordered eating, general anxiety disorders, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours and many others.
How do I know if this is right for me?
Counselling is about finding a way to live in a meaningful and functional way again. If you feel that you are distressed or concerned to a point where you feel it is impacting on your lifestyle then counselling could help increase your awareness of where these problems have stemmed from, how they are affecting you and what you may want to do about them.
I can offer a confidential space to speak freely your thoughts and feelings without judgement, looking at how we can come to solutions in the short term and to benefit long-term.
