Making high quality mental healthcare accessible for everyone

Judith Lewis

Judith obtained her Master in Psychology Degree at Monash University in 2001. She is a registered Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Agency (AHPRA) and a Member of The Australian Psychological Society (APS).

She values working alongside people through the various transitions and challenges of life to find ways of coping and moving forward that are meaningful for them.

Judith has many years of experience working within the community in a variety of settings and with a wide range of clients and presenting issues. She has been an experienced speaker in hospital and community settings in relation to coping with chronic illness and elderly issues. She has provided counselling that has been both office based and at the client’s home.  Prior to joining The Talk Shop, she worked for four years providing telehealth trauma counselling.

Judith possesses a warm and compassionate presence that she believes is the foundation of a strong therapeutic relationship. She provides a non-judgmental and safe space where clients can feel a sense of connection, acknowledgment, and validation. Her therapeutic stance is one of respect and collaboration regarding the formulation of the client’s issues, goals, and therapy direction. Within this context, it is hoped clients are able to develop new insights, learn new coping skills, and implement sustainable behaviour change aligned with their values.

Judith has a particular interest in seeing adult clients navigating the following  life circumstances and emotional difficulties:

  • Relationship issues
  • Coping with the loss of loved ones
  • Work and life stressors
  • Coping with illness
  • Ageing issues
  • Past trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Sadness
  • Grief
  • Depression
  • Anger

Judith employs a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach derived from various evidenced-based modalities. Her preferred counselling techniques are derived from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused/ Brief Therapy, Schema Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Compassion and Mindfulness-based practices. Her counselling methods are tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual client.

Judith is available for telehealth consultations only.
