Psychotherapy

Who We Are

Smruthy Nair

 At Unhyphen we utilise an intersectional framework, trying to understand how race, gender, ethnicity, and privilege impact an individual and their health. 

Our practice philosophy is integrative and eclectic, drawing from narrative therapy, schema therapy, emotion focused and dialectical behaviour therapy, as well as strengths-based and positive psychology, solution focused and cognitive-behavioural therapies.

This integrative and intersectional lens is exactly why we believe therapy should be unhyphenated, just like our identities.

Therapy with Unhyphen is

We are committed to learning and engaging in professional development in order to continue to deliver therapy at the highest standards.


Smruthy provides diagnostic assessments for ADHD. For more details or to book an assessment, contact us directly.

Why

We believe the therapeutic relationship can be a space to safely and bravely process experiences and gain insights. This means that therapy can be personal, political, and psychosocial. 

Therapists at Unhyphen work with clients to address symptoms, meet their goals, and overcome issues like stress, anxiety, depression, as well as past trauma. Collaboration, empathy, and authenticity are essential in the way we work.

You do not need to have a mental health condition or diagnosis to seek therapy. This space is also for people who want to talk through life transitions, or explore their identity.

Therapy is delivered online via a secure telehealth platform. 

Limited in-person appointments are available on Saturdays at counselling rooms conveniently located in Melbourne CBD (appointments with Bimba) and West Footscray (appointments with Smruthy) - please contact the practice directly to book.
