About TYHO Therapists in Australia

How are TYHO Therapists selected?

Note: ‘Therapists’ is a term we use for all professionals at TYHO, including counsellors, psychologists, and psychotherapists in Australia. 

We have a strict selection process with 10% acceptance rate for Therapists in Australia. During the screening, we evaluate the professional to check if they have: 

  • A minimum of master’s degree in counselling or psychology 
  • Required training in therapeutic approaches and specialisations 
  • Core values aligned with TYHO 

TYHO core values include: 

  • Empathy  
  • Non-judgementalism 
  • Inclusivity 
  • Sensitivity to diverse backgrounds (eg cultural, sexual orientations, languages) 

TYHO online Therapists in Australia have lived and worked in different countries or organisations.  

Hence, your preferred Therapist may also draw from their unique skills and life experiences to support you in a way that suits your needs.  

We provide:  

  • Therapy in Sydney  
  • Therapy in Perth 
  • Therapy in Melbourne 
  • Therapy in Brisbane 
  • Therapy in Adelaide 

What is the difference between Care and Empathy Therapists?

At TYHO, we have two different types of Australian Therapists – Care and Empathy. The major difference between the two comes down to several factors.  

The Therapists are categorised based on the following factors: 

  • Therapists’ specialisation – We categorise Therapists based on whether they continue working for a specialist certification such as the Gottman Method. If so, their service might include additional costs and management.  
  • Demographics of the Therapist’s clientele – In this criterion, we analyse who the Therapist works with (eg employees, caregivers, or teenagers). For example, if the Therapist provides child therapy, we make sure to keep the service affordable.  
  • Therapists’ availability – This criterion depends on how many slots the Therapist has and how many slots have already been scheduled.  

Regardless of the category at TYHO, all Therapists in Australia are selected through the same rigorous process.  

In addition, all our online Therapists can help with several psychological conditions listed on their profiles.

Some of the issues they help with include the following:

How Can Therapy in Australia Help?

What is therapy?

Therapy in Australia, also known as talk therapy, is a mental health intervention to prevent, maintain, or manage psychological issues.  

In this therapy space, you will be exchanging structured and clinical conversations with an Australian online Therapist.     

For example, you can talk about unhelpful emotions like feelings of inadequacy, sadness, having issues in the relationship, struggling to communicate, finding it hard to move on from a relationship, or showing signs of extreme mood swings (See: Why Am I So Emotional? 

The main goals of therapy are to:   

  • Offer a safe, impartial, and non-judgemental space to express your emotions   
  • Improve understanding of yourself and your issues  
  • Address and solve complex emotional experiences (eg thinking that your mother hates you)   
  • Recognise and modify negative thought or behaviour patterns   
  • Equip you with effective methods for coping when distressed   

For example, your Therapist in Sydney may use cognitive-based interventions or client-centred therapy to help you deal with chronic stress, anxiety, fears, or depression.   

To manage specific disorders like borderline personality disorder, your Therapist in Australia may use a specialised approach like dialectical behaviour therapy.  

DBT works for mood disorders because the approach was initially designed for specific and intense emotional challenges.  

Some of the emotional symptoms of mood disorders could include: 

  • Rage 
  • Sorrow 
  • Shame 
  • Panic 
  • Fear 
  • Chronic feelings of emptiness and loneliness  

Moreover, studies show that DBT is particularly helpful for certain symptoms of BPD, like feelings of rage. Authoritative bodies like the Australian Psychological Society also endorse DBT to manage mood disorders.    

Nonetheless, determining the effectiveness of a specific therapeutic method for yourself can be challenging.      

For example, how well an approach works for you could depend on your needs, preferences, and your online Therapists' expertise.  

Ongoing research indicates the significance of a positive therapeutic relationship (ie a strong connection with the Therapist in Australia) in achieving positive and healthy therapy outcomes.      

Therefore, regardless of their areas of expertise, try looking for a TYHO Therapist in Sydney with whom you can develop a genuine therapeutic connection. 

When would I need psychotherapy?

You can gain the benefits of psychotherapy in Australia if you: 

  • Need help managing an existing mental health condition 
  • Suspect you might have an issue and want to get diagnosed 
  • Want to improve your habits and lifestyle 
  • Want to learn healthy and effective coping mechanisms to manage your emotions 
  • Need help with personal, family, or professional stress or anxiety 
  • Want to understand yourself better 

At TYHO, online Therapists in Perth offer support for a variety of issues, including:  

  • Mood disorders like major depression and substance-induced mood swings 
  • Issues in relationships (eg Communication gaps and lack of trust) 
  • Economic pressures 
  • Occupational stress or burnout 
  • Specific fears such as social anxiety  
  • Substance dependencies 
  • Traumas from early life 
  • Bipolar disorder 

Please take note that the above list is not exhaustive.  

Note: You can seek marriage counselling if you need help with your marriage. Similarly, you can go for family counselling if you experience issues such as parental stress.  

Visit your preferred Therapist’s full profile to explore all the issues they can help you with. See the ‘What Therapist Can Help With’ section for more information.  

A lot of people have a misconception that therapy is usually the last resort, especially only when the struggle is too unbearable.  

However, online therapy in Australia can help you at any stage of your life and for any reason.  

When you seek help as a preventative measure, you may address problems when they first appear, and become capable of dealing with them in the long-run.  

What types of therapies are available in Australia?

At TYHO, our Therapists in Australia use therapeutic approaches based on: 

  • Your specific needs 
  • Therapist’s areas of expertise 
  • Your objectives for therapy 

Note that the therapeutic approach chosen will be decided collaboratively between you and your Therapist based on the presenting problems you identify together.  

On the one hand, your Therapist may use a single approach for specific issues. For example, if you have OCD, you might benefit from exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy.  

On the other hand, the Therapist may use a combination of approaches (ie eclectic intervention) to address anxiety work-related stress, grief, alcoholism, and interpersonal conflicts. 

Usually, TYHO Therapists in Australia use approaches such as the following:  

  • SFBT 
  • Narrative therapy 
  • Exposure therapy 
  • DBT 
  • Psychodynamic therapies 
  • Emotionally-focused therapies 
  • EMDR 

Additionally, TYHO offers a range of therapy services in Australia, such as:

  • You do not know how to solve

The values, beliefs, and actions we learn within our family play an important role in shaping our adult lives.    

Moreover, family dynamics (ie how they interact with each other) are vastly unique and can affect everyone in the family in different ways.   

Below are some of the common factors that could cause problems in a family:    

  • Generational differences   
  • Sibling rivalries or competitiveness among siblings   
  • Miscommunications   
  • Unhelpful interactions such as shouting or blaming   

Furthermore, changes in family roles can also create more conflicts.    

For example, in some cultures, if a younger sibling takes over the family business, there might be a change in the family roles. This is because older siblings are usually expected to handle family business.  

The shift in cultural roles within a family could lead to feelings of resentment or low self-esteem among older siblings.   

In other cases, however, the older sibling might be more understanding. Yet, the younger one may feel pressured or overwhelmed with the responsibility.   

TYHO family Therapists in Australia are equipped to help you:   

  • Improve your relationship with your family members   
  • Resolve and address family conflicts   
  • Create an atmosphere of reciprocal respect   
  • Develop skills to communicate openly

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose which therapy to use?

During the first few sessions, you may discuss about your: 

  • Medical history  
  • Mental health history  
  • Family history  
  • Presenting problems 
  • Relationships 
  • Personal and therapy goals 

After acquiring a full picture of your life, your Therapist may then determine an approach that best fits your needs.

What 3 types of therapy have been found to be most effective in treating depression?

All types of depression (mild or chronic) are common mental health conditions.  

Nearly 1 in 7 Australians have depression at some point in their lifetime.  

What therapy works for you depends on several factors, such as: 

  • Your personality 
  • Type of depression 
  • Your treatment preferences (ie whether you prefer medication or a combination of medications and psychotherapy) 
  • Your Therapist’s specialisations and suggestions 
  • Your therapy goals 

At TYHO, depression counselling can help you with all types of depression through approaches such as mindfulness-based therapy and narrative therapies.  

2021 study shows that depression-focused psychotherapy is the second most effective therapy to manage clinical depression. 

The same study also shows that a combination of talk therapy, medications, and somatic therapies can also effectively treat mood disorders (eg bipolar disorder).

How do I know if my online Therapist is right for me?

Only you can determine if your Australian Therapist is right for you. However, below are some of the key points you can look out for:  

  • Active listening: Your Therapist should pay attention to what you say and actively show their engagement. This could include asking questions and clarifying their doubts. Non-verbal engagement could include nodding, noticing your body language, and maintaining eye contact.  
  • Communication skills: Your Therapist should be able to simplify complex ideas for you and clearly describe symptoms in a way you understand. A good Therapist in Australia will also encourage you to build on your communication skills 
  • Unconditional acceptance: No matter how you feel or think, your Therapist should accept you without any conditions. A good indicator is when they concentrate more on your needs rather than forcing you into actions you are not comfortable with.  
  • Feedback: Your Therapist may know best about what therapeutic approaches to use. However, you are the best judge of your life. Hence, if something does not work out for you, your Therapist should take your feedback seriously and personalise their therapeutic plan based on your needs.  

Try to attend at least three sessions before you decide if it’s worth continuing sessions with your Therapist.  

The first few sessions might be a time for rapport building. Hence, it might take some more time for you and your Therapist to understand each other’s needs and personalities.
