Lachlan Anthony GDP, MCP, APS

I am a friendly and empathetic Australian therapist with experience in public, community, and private mental health settings. I have a Master of Clinical Psychology from the University of Melbourne, and this training allows me to understand and treat a broad spectrum of mental health difficulties and disorders that many people face. 

Prior to my career as a therapist, I worked in the creative advertising industry and ran a business for several years. I experienced first-hand the stress and pressure that everyday life can bring and

became increasingly interested in ways that I could support myself and those around me. Through mindfulness meditation and reading psychology books my interest in a career as a clinical psychologist grew, which has led me to this point.

My approach to therapy is based on my belief that we all experience difficulties and psychological distress at different times, and there are often understandable reasons for feeling this way. I will

work alongside you to help you increase your awareness and understanding of your challenges and to develop meaningful ways of moving forward. My practice is informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Schema Therapy, as well as mindfulness-based practices.


I work with adults and young people aged 16+ and I have experience working with people from the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. I am happy to work with most mental health issues and have a particular interest in:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety and OCD

  • Trauma-related mental health difficulties 

  • Stress and adjustment

  • Insomnia

  • Relationship and interpersonal problems

  • Substance-related problems

  • Attention and concentration issues, such as ADHD

  • Grief and loss

  • Self-esteem issues

  • Perfectionism

  • Anger 


It takes courage to acknowledge your difficulties and seek professional help, and I appreciate that taking this first step can be challenging. I aim to develop a therapeutic relationship with compassion, trust, and effort, on both sides, and provide an environment where you feel supported and safe to explore difficult topics and be open with your emotions.


Together, we will work to understand the underlying patterns of your difficulties and tailor a treatment plan that is unique to you, using the most appropriate evidence-based practices. I am passionate about helping you find the language to understand your difficulties and the tools to live a full and meaningful life.
