There is a growing research base demonstrating online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy, which has allowed us to feel confident that we can offer the same high quality of service online as we would face-to-face. Our online clinic allows the convenience and flexibility of having professional support in your own home, which is ideal for people with busy schedules, mobility limitations, or who simply prefer this mode of treatment. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, so we ensure our online forms and information storage systems are all encrypted, our telehealth consultations take place via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing system, and we use certified secure payment systems.
About Carly Dober
Carly is a psychologist with a particular interest in the issues that affect the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young women. She is a Director at the Australian Association of Psychologists Incorporated (AAPi).
Carly has experience in guiding individuals to understand themselves, their experiences, and their social context, in order to reach a place of greater self-acceptance and increased wellbeing. As part of the process, she supports clients in understanding and responding to emotions, developing assertiveness to strengthen boundaries, understanding trauma and how this impacts behaviours and functioning, and unpacking and challenging gender stereotypes. Carly is passionate about preventative mental health care, acknowledging the multitude of systemic and social actors that may get in the way of our optimal wellbeing.
Carly takes a person-centered, holistic approach to therapy; she draws from eco-psychology, and utilises evidence-based therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, and Nature Therapy to help clients break free from the negative life patterns that underlie longstanding psychological difficulties and challenging relationships. At the heart of Carly's approach is the belief that all of our emotions make sense and hold important information about our values and needs.
Carly is a trained Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist, yoga teacher, and is a passionate climate and conservation activist.
