Gila Weinberger Verified
Hi, my name is Gila. I am an Australian-qualified psychologist with a Masters in Clinical Psychology. I am experienced in treating adults who are struggling with general anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, and more. I also have particular experience treating postpartum anxiety and depression. As a mother of four young children, I am passionate about helping other mothers who are struggling with low mood, anxiety, and stress during this period.
I offer therapy that focuses on helping you to understand and cope with your current difficulties. My main treatment method is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I incorporate other therapies where relevant. My approach to therapy is evidence-based, empathic, non-judgmental, and direct. I will work together with you so that you can feel empowered to understand and navigate the difficulties you are experiencing. Feel free to reach out.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of psychotherapy that encourages individuals to accept their thoughts, feelings, and experiences without judgment and to use them as tools to help them to make changes in their lives that are consistent with their values. It is based on the idea that by changing the way we think about our inner experiences, we can reduce emotional distress and increase our sense of well-being.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on how one's thoughts, feelings and behaviors are connected and can be changed. It is based on the idea that how we think (cognition) and how we feel (emotion) can influence how we behave. CBT helps people identify and challenge distorted thinking and replace it with more balanced thinking, leading to improved mood and behavior. ‘Homework’, usually containing practical writing exercises, is often completed by the client between sessions to reinforce the therapy. Examples of tools that practitioners often use are journaling, challenging beliefs, and mindfulness.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy developed by Marsha Linehan to help people learn to better manage and cope with emotions and stress. It focuses on developing skills and strategies to help regulate emotions, improve relationships and communication, and reduce self-destructive behaviors. Through DBT, people learn to identify and modify unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, while also learning to accept and validate their own feelings. DBT teaches skills to help individuals become aware of and accept and regulate their emotions, tolerate distress, and improve interpersonal relationships.
