Chelsea Northcott

Clinical Psychologist Registrar

Chelsea is a compassionate, down-to-earth therapist who truly enjoys her work and feels the deepest respect for all clients she works with. She has experience in the treatment of a broad range of mental health difficulties, having worked in private and public psychiatric hospitals, community youth centres, and women’s health clinics.

Issues Addressed:

  • Eating disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, ARFID, and OSFED)
  • Body image issues
  • Trauma
  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Anxiety (generalised anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, perfectionism, etc.)

Chelsea has a passion for working with eating disorders and associated long-term patterns – such as depression, anxiety, perfectionism, shame, low self-esteem, and social difficulties. Chelsea is also interested in working with issues that may seem “subtle”, but that cause a lot of difficulty in day-to-day life (e.g., teenager “moodiness”, people-pleasing, shyness, difficulties trusting others, etc.).

Chelsea has particular interest and experience in working with teenagers and young adults, but enjoys working with individuals across the lifespan. She does not currently offer therapy to individuals under 16 years of age.

Therapy Approach

Chelsea aims to establish a sense of safety and security in the therapeutic relationship. This is a unique space in which she welcomes you to say exactly what is on your mind, without filter. Chelsea works with her clients in a compassionate and very “human” way – and is above all interested in fully understanding her clients and their story. This means that when you talk, she will listen. Chelsea is skilled in working with brief short-term issues as well as providing longer-term therapy. She will work collaboratively with you to develop an approach that best suits your needs, guided by your personal preferences.

Chelsea’s practice integrates a range of evidence-based therapy models including interpersonal psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). She also draws upon dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and mindfulness as appropriate.
