Barbara Craven - Child, Teen, Adult Psychotherapy, Counselling, Coaching, Hypnotherapy - South East Melbourne & Telehealth
Psychotherapist, Clinical Counsellor, Accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist, Coach
Remember when you felt confident, strong, sure of yourself?
When your thoughts helped you and you knew you were coping?
You can be like this again.
Learning what to do differently, gives you control of your life.
Psychotherapy is a private, confidential conversation which often has very little to do with illness, or disease.
Talking helps you gain different insights, become more self aware, discover ways to be more effective. Psychotherapy helps you decide what action to take and when to do stuff.
This is called healing.
So, can you do this? Yes of course you can.
Can children and teens do psychotherapy? Yes of course they can…
Hi, I am Barbara Craven
Beginning a journey to transform your life for the better is a powerful decision. But what does it really mean?
Imagine: when your mental health is in good shape, you’re more likely to feel positive and confident about your life. It’s like having a sturdy foundation to support your thoughts, emotions, and actions.
I specialize in using psychotherapy techniques to help you regain control over these aspects of your life. Together, we’ll break the cycle of thoughts or behaviours which may be holding you back.
I get really good results when I include hypnotherapy, counselling and coaching techniques into our sessions. This approach taps into your inner strengths, experiences, and knowledge, unlocking a reservoir of potential. It’s about stopping those surprise attacks on your thoughts and actions, allowing you to navigate life with confidence.
For those under the NDIS umbrella, my focus is on improving your ability to lead your best life possible. This involves skill development, improved decision-making, and fostering harmonious relationships within carers or family units.
My expertise extends to working with men and boys dealing with violence and bullying in their lives. I’ve assisted countless men to reduce their family violence behaviours. More significantly, I guide them on how to cease using these harmful actions with their loved ones.
So, if you’re ready to take charge of your life, I’m here to support and guide you through your transformation or therapy journey. Let’s work together to build a foundation of mental well-being that propels you toward a brighter and more fulfilling future.

How does Psychotherapy work ?
Simply described: It helps you be aware of, take control, and change HOW you think, react and behave when facing your life experiences.
Psychotherapy for adults gives you back your control over your life.
Child and Teen Psychotherapy gives children and teens the ability to cope with their overwhelm AND learn life skills which serve their mental health well into adulthood.
They face different challenges – being saturated by mobile technology and social media.
Psychotherapy and counselling teaches important life and relationship skills, develops their ability to self regulate, and make better personal decisions.
Children today are not learning HOW to think for themselves, how to be resilient, how to identify which emotions they can describe in words and which ones should not be described with a kick or a scream.
Psychotherapy and counselling for children uses creativity, imagination to teach important skills.. all the while taking into account their brain development.
