Dr Jeannette Kavanagh - Counselling & Psychotherapy

Do you have over-the-top anxiety and panic attacks? Are you looking for proven and effective treatment for anxiety?
Do you have a phobia, an intense fear, of spiders, being alone, crowds, dogs, clowns, sand, enclosed spaces anything?
Are you a bit nervous or downright terrified about speaking in public, even to a small group of work colleagues?
Do you find yourself worrying obsessively and feeling compelled to do things to reduce that worry?
Maybe your child is more than just a little apprehensive about taking on new challenges at school? Is s/he refusing to go to school, or when they go, you know that theyre very unhappy?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, please call me now on (03)9687 2083 for your first FREE 15 MINUTE consultation by phone.
You can also contact me via the 'Make an Enquiry' button if you have more questions about any of the treatments I offer.

Money-back Guarantee

I provide general anxiety treatment as well as counselling and psychotherapy for more specific fears like public speaking anxiety, fear of spiders, dogs, snakes and social anxiety. My anxiety treatments help you to overcome your anxieties and to see your own role in those habits of fear.

I am so confident that my treatments will take you from anxiety back to calm that if after five sessions, you're not 90% recovered, I'll repay your consultation fees.

You can't ask for more than that, surely! Call me today on (03)9687 2083 for the first step in reclaiming a life not limited by hyper-anxiety. You deserve to be happy: it's your primary duty in life.

I also specialise in relationship counselling, including family therapy. Based on years of experience in counselling and psychotherapy, I can help you to find the solution to your problem. When I cant, I refer you to one of my specialist colleagues.

Borderline Personality Disorder

I specialise in treating Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and I'm a member of the BPD Foundation recently established in Melbourne. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to this complex illness. I treat the person first and the label is a guide to therapies that we use together.

Through my counselling and psychotherapy practice in Yarraville I offer:

  • FREE initial 15 minute consultation by phone
  • Concessional fees for people on low-incomes
  • Sessions outside 9-5 and on Saturday.

Skype Sessions

Unless you live close to my practice in Yarraville, travelling to and from appointments can add hours to your counselling time, even out of peak hour. For everyone, travel makes your counselling more expensive unless youve found free petrol or free public transport. Thats why I offer online consultations as well as phone sessions.

If you do opt for online consultations, you still get the help you need and thats what you want. Many of my clients opt for both. They pop in a Skype session from time to time and a face-to-face consultation when that suits.

What To Expect During a Treatment?

In working with people with all sorts of major and not so major issues, Ive learned that one approach will never be enough. As a result my focus is now on working together with you in order to create a unique solution to your equally unique problems.


Why do I make your first consultation free? Simple. In that short no-obligation first consultation, I can gain a better understanding of what problems or challenges youd like to resolve. You can ask questions about my past success rates, my preferred treatment approaches and you can make up your mind about whether or not we might be a good match. Relationship is everything in therapy. Instead of wasting your time and money, you can get a very good sense in that phone call about whether or not you want to make an appointment. We can then discuss how well work together to find the solutions to your problems.
