Amy Farrell

Registered Psychologist


Amy is a Registered Psychologist (Bachelor if Psychology) with a Master of Science in Medicine (Sexual and Reproductive Health) with a specialisation in Psychosexual Therapy.

She has a special interest in healthy relationships, communication, sexuality, sexual health, and gender.

She enjoys working with clients with diverse experiences of the world and identity and understands the challenges that this can present. Supporting people to promote wellbeing and mental health through facilitating acceptance and love for the things that make them unique is an essential part of her practice.

Amy adopts a flexible and client-centred approach to therapy. She works collaboratively with her clients to identify their unique psychological goals, and tailor interventions accordingly using various evidence-based therapies. She aims to create a safe space for people to share their experiences, to reflect, find direction and meaning, and to build skills to cope with what life throws at them.

Amy is passionate about providing a safe and non-judgmental space for those struggling with their sexuality or reproductive health.

Amy provides counselling around:

  • Pregnancy, fertility and parenting concerns. This may include parenting stress relating to older children.
  • General anxiety, depression and stress. Focusing on enhancing general wellbeing.
  • Sexual concerns which may involve functioning, desire, arousal, pain or orgasm.
  • Relationship concerns. This might include situations like “my partner wants more/less sex than I do” mismatched libido, discrepancies or difference in other aspects of sexuality such as kink, general “we want to enhance our relationship”, and “I don’t have an intimate relationship” related scenarios.
  • Illness, pain or physical difficulties that impact sexual wellbeing. This also includes STIs.
  • Self-esteem or body image issues
  • Sexuality and gender identity issues. Understanding identity, coming out etc

In order to receive a Medicare rebate you will need to be referred with a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) by your regular GP, which identifies a mental health concern such as anxiety or adjustment disorder which is comorbid to your sexual health / relationship issue.

You may wish to receive counselling without a MHCP. You may claim back on your private health or just wish to be full-fee paying.

Amy requires a referral for all of her clients, whether they choose to go through a MHCP or are paying privately.

All referrals are triaged by Amy in a timely manner to ensure suitability within her scope.

Amy returns from maternity leave February 2023.
