Think Gray Psychotherapy
"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate"
- Carl Jung -
Think Gray Psychotherapy is run by Sophie Gray (B.Psych(Hons); M.Couns&Psychotherapy), who focuses on helping people of all ages overcome mental health challenges.
(Excuse me as I change from third to first person - I can't stand the awkwardness of writing about myself as "she"!)
I aim to help people flourish.
My philosophy centres around resilience, not removal of problems. Life throws curveballs all the time, and I pride myself on empowering clients to deal with them. My clients finish therapy with an understanding of themselves, the purpose of their ‘negative' emotions, and how to cope with life.
Throughout my life, I have battled with anxiety and depression, and also have two young kids, so I understand how challenging it can be to heal when life is still happening around you! However, I practice what I preach and hold myself accountable to my own healing every day.
I believe we are all capable of becoming stronger than our problems to live a meaningful and happy life... but we don't have to do it alone.
I was totally blown away by her ability to adeptly describe awkward topics and paint a cohesive picture of what’s going on. Her receptive nature not only makes it a comfortable place to open up, but also allows the content (which can be confronting-you’re talking about feelings) to be digestible and relevant to you.

It gives you an understanding of your behavioural and thought patterns - and how to adapt!
Your head will no longer be a mystery to you
You gain purposeful awareness of emotions
You will craft a meaningful life and cultivate happiness
It helps you gain clarity about your direction in life
It helps you feel safe in yourself
It helps you choose your emotional responses

Face-to-face, Online, or Phone
We start by understanding your self-beliefs, your experiences, your concerns & problems, and your goals.
We consider how your self-narrative is constructed. We use this framework to curiously (not judgementally) reflect on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
We mindfully begin to make choices about who you want to be - and purposefully construct your life in that image.

Unfortunately I cannot offer Medicare rebates, as my post-graduate training is in psychotherapy, not psychology. To compensate for this, my fee equates to the average out-of-pocket cost of seeing a rebated practitioner, and there are no changes to my fees for the duration of therapy (whereas MHC plans cover only 10 sessions with a rebate).
