Looking for a Christian psychologist for Skype sessions

    Hi everyone,

    I'm keen to find a skilled Christian psychologist who does Skype sessions and works from a psychodynamic perspective (preferably). I'm also in Australia, so someone in my time zone would be useful.

    It's important to me that they share my faith, because I want to talk about some issues that are specifically relevant to my beliefs as a Christian. (I've tried a non-Christian psychologist and while they were probably quite good at their job, they just didn't "get it" when I talked about faith related issues and it was not helpful.)

    I have a severe case of Fibromyalgia (with neuropathic pain) which I've had for three years, and I've had CFS/ME for two years. I've been trying the TMS approach for quite a while with only limited success, so I want to find a good therapist.

    Thanks in advance!
    Lauren

    James Alexander who is listed in the practitioner directory is from Australia, I don't recall his book having any religious angle but perhaps he would know of someone?

    Hi Laudisco, there are quite a few Christian psychologist in Australia (by searching Google), however I'm not sure if they work with psychodynamic therapy.

    The only person I know on this forum from Australia is @Colly, it's a long shot but you may wish to drop her a note. She's extremely friendly and helpful.

    Thanks for that Mike! I'll probably just have to do a bit of web searching and see who I can find.

    Hi Laudisco, I found success with Jenny Johnston (she's in Frankston, Melbourne). I saw her in person and then did a couple of follow up skypes with her. She's an EFT therapist. It's not for everyone but I found it effective, also it was good to work through some emotional gunk that had been stuck in my body. She's not Christian but very spiritual. Anyway I recommend her - she accelerated my recovery through a couple of relapses. All the best, Colly
