Who are Connect Us Psychology?

At Connect Us Psychology we are passionate about helping you to achieve mental well-being – thriving, not just surviving.

Chelsea Luker, the founder of Connect Us Psychology, has experience working with individuals across the lifespan and from many different walks of life.

While Chelsea welcomes clients with a range of different presentations, she has a particular interest in supporting neurodivergent individuals. Chelsea enjoys working with both children and adults, and is also able to assist parents in supporting their children through a trauma-informed, neuro-affirming lens (i.e., in a way that is respectful of their past experiences and their neurotype). Chelsea values the importance of early intervention and supporting individuals and families holistically.

Seeing a Psychologist

Who can see a psychologist?

Anyone can see a psychologist, and you do not need a referral to access psychology sessions.

What does a psychologist do?

Guided by the social model of disability, at Connect Us Psychology we focus on supporting individuals by building their personal capacity and advocating for environmental changes where possible. We understand that challenges often arise not from the individual, but from societal and environmental barriers. As such, our approach involves exploring these dynamics and creating solutions to reduce these obstacles, and supporting individuals to minimise the impact of obstacles that can’t be removed. Our work involves empowering clients to work toward their identified goals and fostering systemic changes that affirm the diverse experiences of all individuals.

What therapies do you use?

At Connect Us Psychology we use a variety of therapeutic approaches depending on the individual and their circumstances and preferences. The most common therapeutic approaches we use include: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Eye Movement and Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness and psychoeducation.

How many sessions will I need to attend?

This will depend on many things and as such it is best to ask your psychologist directly.
