Senior Psychologist

Hey Ghoul! I'm Yvonne, a senior psychologist at Very Helpful Chats. I was confirmed neurodivergent as an adult, and for me, it was like a light was finally turned on after living in the dark my whole life. I know personally the grief, anger and then acceptance of finding out later in life why things have always been different for me. I have learnt that no two brains are the same; that's what makes humans so interesting! Knowing how your brain works is like the keys to Disneyland. Once you know your brain, the world will be your playground. Despite all the challenges that have come your way, you overcame them enough to be here, and it's okay to be tired! It takes a lot to show up, and you're kicking butt to do that. I am here to listen (you are the expert, not me), and my role is to help you identify the dots, connect them, and explore the picture together. We will work together to identify what is challenging, why it's difficult and how to manage it so that it's the least exhausting way forward.

What will our sessions look like?

I will help you learn the 'why' behind the 'what' behind your struggles. I will help you better understand who you are, how your particular brain works and what you need to do to combat life's challenges. I will also teach you to accept and understand yourself, just as I did, of who you are, not what the world or society suggests to you.
