My books are currently closed and I won't be taking on new clients for the rest of 2020. Prospective clients may call and explore options for 2021. If you're in urgent need, rather than waiting, I encourage you to seek out a therapist with availability. Life Supports Counselling may have options.
Tim Yassine Psychology
Psychologist for Young Adults, Adolescents and Older Children in Burwood.
Life can get overwhelming at times and it's helpful to be reminded you don't have to be alone. I’m a Registered Psychologist in Burwood in Sydney's Inner West, and I’m here to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery. For your child I'm able to help them directly, or help you help them.
I'm able to assist Teens, Young Adults, Adolescents and Older Children with a range of issues related but not limited to: stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, grief, identity issues, family issues, relationship issues or if you are just needing a supportive relationship.
Finding the right professional can be challenging but when the right one is found, it can harness real change coming from within. I'm a relatively young psychologist who resonates well with Teens, Young Adults, Adolescents and Older Children able to participate in forms of talk therapy. I do work with adults also up to about forty years of age.
I work really well with young guys who sometimes find it hard to connect to a therapist and their existing friends and family aren't really a support option. I adhere to strict values around confidentiality and my clinic has confidential entry with no obvious signage leading up to the entry nor on the suite door. A GP referral is not necessary to see me although if you are looking to claim the Medicare rebate (see Services page), it will be required.
Due to my experience and interests, a large component of my work is also assisting young people with disabilities and I have been working within the NDIS framework since its rollout in 2016.
About Therapy - A Little About What to Expect
Our first session is generally spent discussing what you're seeking to obtain from our time together and determining the best approach for ongoing work. I lean towards a more psychodynamic, existential and humanistic style thus I look to do some deeper work. However, I can work within a cognitive behavioural framework which looks at the interplay of thoughts, emotions and behaviour or an Interpersonal style which examines relationships and communication style. This is additional to mindfulness based approaches.
The first few sessions are about getting to know you and the issues you'd like to bring to the conversation. Afterwards we get to more in depth work which is not always structured but always meaningful.
All meetings are required to be scheduled before arriving at the clinic door.
The clinic is located in the heart of Burwood a minute walk from Burwood Train Station and buses. It is a brief 3 - 5 minute walk from Burwood Westfield where free parking can be found for 2 hours. Alternatively, there is a paid parking station directly below the building at the council car park for a quick entry and escape - entry is from George street. Street parking is available but challenging.
