Thought of the Week

“The idea of a finished human product not only appears presumptuous but even, in my opinion, lacks any strong appeal. Life is struggle and striving, development and growth – and analysis is one of the means that can help in this process. Certainly its positive accomplishments are important, but also the striving itself is of intrinsic value.”

―Karen Horney


It is Waring, Wombat Season, the time of highest rainfall and lowest temperatures. When wombats  emerge to bask and graze in the sun.  During this cold and damp season one can imagine that the sun is therapy for wombats.

As the temperature drops we naturally become inward focused, it is natural that we begin to sink into the depths of our psyche. Like the sun comforting wombats, it is comforting and healing to embark on this inward journey with an experienced practitioner. We are pleased to let you know that we have experienced Psychologists with availability to see you:

 Charu Mangla Goel:
You can rest assured that you will be in very good hands when you commence therapy with this experienced and talented practitioner. Charu is a Senior Registered Psychologist who works from a Psychodynamic perspective to assist clients with difficult experiences and relationships. Charu works via Telehealth: a perfect solution for those that would rather not travel and would enjoy therapy from the comfort of their own home. We are thrilled to announce that she has recently increased her hours and is also working on Wednesdays. She has proved to be popular, but Charu still has an available space to see two more patients. This session will go quickly so please contact us to book your appointment with Charu. For more information about Charu see here.

We are particularly excited to introduce you to:

Dr Helen Evert:
Helen is a Senior Registered Psychologist with a warm and accepting nature. She is gentle and intelligent, with a  carefully considered approach to her work with clients. We are thrilled she is joining our team in the 2nd week of May. She sees adults, adolescents, children and families. She has many years of experiences during which she has worked with a multitude of psychological issues. She is particularly interested in complex trauma, ASD, and cross-cultural issues. Helen has room for new clients an Tuesdays and Wednesdays. For more information about Helen see here.

Dr Shikha Gray:                                                                                                                                                                                            Shikha is an Experienced Registered  Psychologist with a passion for helping individuals and couples develop healthier relationships with themselves and others. Shikha draws from Existential and Psychodynamic models, and enriches her practice with experiential techniques to help clients delve into their inner world. She works with individuals and couples and is currently offering sessions via Telehealth. More information can be found about Shikha here.

And we are excited to let you know that we also have other wonderful new psychologists waiting in wings to join us soon.

For our dear colleagues looking for a new home in which to do good work.  We have room for new practitioners who like us are dedicated to best practice. At MCPC we are proud of our friendly, supportive, and kind-hearted professional team. This contributes to the “good vibe” that many patients comment on and this in turn attracts more patients to our practice. We are therefore always on the search for additional Practitioners to join our lovely professional team. Please feel free to contact us if you are a Registered Psychologist, a Psychoanalyst, or Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. More information can be found here.
