David Ferraro is a clinical psychologist with many years of experience in a range of contexts, including private practice, hospitals and community settings. He is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and is an Honorary Fellow of the University of Melbourne. David has worked successfully with people from diverse backgrounds on a wide range of problems. He specialises in working with children, adolescents, adult individuals and families.
David is a careful listener, who helps his clients to establish the cause of their hardship, and find solutions to their problems. He helps clients to gain knowledge, by identifying any self-imposed or external barriers to living life to the fullest. Most importantly, David equips people with ‘know-how’: he gives clients the tools required to identify a way forward using the resources at their disposal to greatest effect. As a psychoanalyst, David holds the view that at least some of the problems that cause concern have a basis in the unconscious. As clients learn more about the unconscious, they are able to find ways of living that avoid self-sabotage, repetition of destructive patterns, and dissatisfaction in the various spheres of their lives.
In addition to being a clinical psychologist who is well-versed in a range of treatment approaches, David’s extensive training and expertise as a psychoanalyst enables him to tailor counselling to meet each client’s needs using Psychoanalysis and Psychodynamic Therapy.
