Dr Loretta Bell - Clinical Psychologist Melbourne
Mobile 0409 800 385
I like to work in a collaborative process in which therapy fits the person or couple I am seeing. I work integratively from a wealth of theories and counselling modalities that I have mastered over my years as a therapist. I don't see the world through disease or pathological lens, so my first port of call is usually to try to understand how my client or clients have found themselves in their current distress in the current lives and their history. Currently counselling remotely via internet.
Due to the current Pandemic, I am currently socially distancing and working remotely via secure telehealth internet platforms (Z.oom & Coviu). I am hoping to provide continuity of service to my clients who may need services more than ever with the current world crisis. Please keep well and contact me if you want to have a chat about how all this might work :-)

I am integrative and training in many therapeutic modalities. At heart, I am a humanist with a systemic overview with some psychodynamic influence. I utilise an emotionally focused framework in therapy. I am also training in schema therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I am strongly influenced by interpersonal neurobiological thinking and attachment theory and patterns.
I am registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Authority and hold endorsement as a Counselling and Clinical Psychologist and a registered supervisor. I am also a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and a member of the both the College of Clinical and Counselling Psychology of the APS and am a registered supervisor.
