My name is Amii Larsen and I am a psychologist and clinical hypnotherapist. I have a Bachelor of Psychology (honours) and a masters degree in Mental Health Sciences. To become a registered psychologist I completed two years on the job training. This means that while I have done the classroom study, I have a lot of practical experience that only comes from working with real people. In 2015 I trained with the South Australian Society of Hypnosis to become a hypnotherapist. I also travelled to Victoria to learn equine assisted therapy at the Equine Psychotherapy Institute.
For the past eight years I have been a therapist for the world renowned Statewide Gambling Therapy Service. I provided psychological therapy to people with gambling addiction and the many problems that go along with that. I also have years of experience treating anxiety disorders, depression and other related difficulties.
My approach to therapy is all about you. I tailor treatment to suit your needs and provide the best options to help you achieve your goals. You are the expert when it comes to the challenges you may be experiencing, and I am here to offer new insights and tools to help you move forward.
Overcoming life’s challenges
SevenEight Psychology was born out of a long journey of hard work, dedication and passion for helping others. The name came from the proverb ‘fall down seven times, stand up eight’, which I feel sums up my journey in becoming a psychologist. I also feel that this describes the journey of many people who are seeking some support and guidance to improve their mental health and well-being.
SevenEight Psychology is about building resilience and helping you overcome life’s challenges. Sometimes when we fall down, we can just get back up and carry on. Other times, we can do it with support from our friends and family. And then there are times when working through things on your own just isn’t quite enough – and that’s where I can help.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, sad or just feel that you aren’t able to be your best self, SevenEight Psychology might be for you. Perhaps you have experienced trauma, grief or addiction and want to get back to living life on your terms. For people who just want to take their well-being to the next level, I offer personal growth and development, and quit smoking options. If this sounds like you, please give me a call and we can talk about how I can help.
