Hello, my name is Regina Gerlach and I'm a clinical psychologist and mindfulness teacher. I've been practicing mindfulness for over 15 years, and have seen firsthand the transformative effects it can have on one's well-being. My approach combines evidence-based therapies with mindfulness practices, creating a holistic and individualised treatment plan for each client.
I believe that every person has the ability to heal and grow, and I'm passionate about supporting my clients in their journey towards greater inner peace and fulfillment. In addition to my one-on-one counseling services, I offer a variety of online resources for free through my blog, Being Matters, as well as on YouTube, SoundCloud, and Insight Timer.
I have a particular interest in the use of EMDR therapy in working with trauma, as well as the treatment of chronic pain through mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral approaches. If you're looking for a compassionate and experienced psychologist who can guide you towards a more mindful and fulfilling life, I would be honoured to work with you.
In my work with indiviudals and couples, I use a variety of treatment modalities including Buddhist psychology, EMDR, CFT, Gottman therapy, Mindfulness-integrated CBT, Positive Neuro Plasticity, Trauma-sensitive Mindfulness, Somatic emotional Integration, and Internal Family Systems. These approaches allow me to address the unique needs and concerns of each individual and provide a well-rounded and effective treatment plan.
I am a member of various professional organisations in Australia and Germany, including the Australian Psychological Society (APS), Australian Association of Psychologists (AAPi), APS College of Clinical Psychologists, as well as the Institue for Clinical Psychologists (ICP). I am also a senior meditation teacher and member of the Meditation Association of Australia.
I provide MBCT Train the Trainer training, which includes foundation courses, practicum, supervision, and mentoring. I am also a supervisor and trainer for several different mindfulness-based interventions, including MBSR. I am an associate of the Mindfulness Teaching Institute and hold the role of national certification coordinator for MBSR/CT.
I have a passion for working with couples and use Gottman therapy and mindfulness as key approaches in my work. Gottman therapy is a research-based approach to couples therapy that was developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. It is focused on helping couples strengthen their relationships and improve communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution skills.
I conduct all services in both languages, English or German.
