About Dr Cameron Cunningham

Dr Cameron Cunningham is a humanistic counselling psychologist which means that her practice is centred on forming a collaborative relationship with her clients and discovering their unique needs for therapy.  She believes that we all have the tools for constructive change within us, and her goal is to help empower her clients to discover their inner resources to solve problems and develop meaningful relationships. Therefore, she prefers to consider clients' reasons for coming to therapy as dis-ease with an area of their life as opposed to disease or a disordered manner of thinking or behaving.

Importantly, she does not believe in one singular way of working. Rather, clients are the centre of therapy, as she integrates concepts and ideas from various approaches in psychology depending on client goals. The approaches she draws from most often are schema therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), compassion-focused therapy (CFT), and mindfulness.  

Her experiences include but are not limited to working with clients with obsessive thoughts and behaviours, depression and anxiety, challenging childhoods, problems in relationships, in addition to self-harm and suicidal ideation. She is also skilled in trauma-informed approaches to therapy through years of working with complex trauma within refugee and asylum seeker populations.

She offers a blended approach to therapy, which means she is more than happy to offer sessions online or in person.  When therapy begins, she often spends several sessions getting to know her clients to develop collaborative exploration and understanding of client concerns. Once she has formulated the problem and established goals for therapy, she then often develops a collaborative therapeutic plan suited to the client's goals and needs for therapy.  She may agree to open-ended sessions, or the client may prefer something time limited. Regardless, her goal as your therapist is to adapt to your preferences for therapy as she supports you in understanding the factors that contribute to your mental health.
