The practice is conveniently located, family friendly and focussed on addressing the needs of clients in a highly professional, respectful and evidenced based manner. Each psychologist is committed to best practice and ensuring the needs of their clients are heard and addressed in a welcoming, responsive and relaxed environment.

The practice provides assessment and treatment of many minor and major mental health conditions in young people and adults, as well as difficulties related to interpersonal relationships, health/wellbeing, stress, and life adjustments.

Dr Carly Ymer
B.App.Sci. (Hons), D.Psych. (Clinical)

Carly has a wealth of experience and a love of working with teenagers and young adults facing difficulties with their mental health, relationships and adjustments to life changes. Therapy is aimed to help her clients understand the connection between the mind and their emotions and how these effect their behaviour, choices, relationships and wellbeing. With teenagers particularly, Carly’s sensitivity to their vulnerable minds and growing bodies allows them to feel heard, understood, at ease and safe to explore their internal world and their difficult emotions and experiences. With young adults, Carly particularly focusses on her clients developing insight and understanding in to their own functioning, including conditioning from childhood, relational patterns, personality, and their cognitive operating system. Once insight is gained, Carly then works with her clients to identify opportunities for growth and change to enable them to create the life they wish to live/experience.

Carly’s work with her clients, creates optimal conditions for growth and change, through the provision of unconditional positive regard, a client centred approach and an understanding of the clients motivations and fears in order to gently shift mindset, challenge unhelpful behaviours and soothe uncomfortable emotions. Providing a reflection of their inner world helps her clients to see the areas requiring change as Carly assists them to discover ways they may achieve this through thought emotional exploration, behavioural challenges, and communication tools.

Carly readily works with issues related to anxiety, mood disorder, eating disorders, behavioural disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder in girls, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and parent/teen relational difficulties. Carly provides an assessment of the presenting issues, symptoms and behaviours, and then works with the client to achieve not only amelioration of their symptoms and problems, but a deeper sense of self awareness, emotional regulation, and healthier and happier relationship with themselves and others.

Carly utilises a client centred approach that is individual to each client and that takes into account the clients generational, cultural, age, gender and intrapersonal uniqueness. Developing rapport and a safe, relaxed and respectful therapeutic relationship is paramount to Carly’s work. She uses well known and evidenced based processes with elements from the theories and techniques of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Behavioural Therapy and Affect Regulation Therapy (ART).

Most of all, Carly is passionate about her clients feeling seen, safe and understood, and loves working collaboratively to help her clients achieve mental health and wellbeing, and the life they wish to live.
