Welcome

 ***IMPORTANT UPDATE***

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Australian Volunteer Program has been suspended worldwide. As a result, I have had to terminate my volunteer role as a Clinical Psychologist in Vanuatu five months early and return to Melbourne Australia on the 20th of March, 2020. I have since resumed my work as a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Melbourne from April 6th, 2020.

If you are suffering from sleep difficulties, depressed mood, anxiety, trauma, addiction or relationship issues and would like some help with your concerns, please email me at damon.ashworth@gmail.com or send me a message via the contact page. I will happily set up an initial appointment time for you either in person or via Telehealth.

I will be taking on new clients for face-to-face in-person therapy at Southgate Medical Centre (Thursdays) and at the Centre for Clinical Psychology (Tuesdays and Fridays). You can contact the Centre for Clinical Psychology directly via phone on 03 9077 0122 if you would like to book a session with me there.

I will also be taking on new clients for online therapy via Telehealth (using video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Skype on Mondays and Wednesdays). This means that no matter where you are in the world, as long as you have an internet connection that is fast enough to allow video chat, I am happy to help. If you would like to book a Telehealth session, please click here.

I hope that you and your loved ones are all doing okay, and I look forward to providing extra support to anyone who would like it during this very uncertain and challenging time.

My Mission Statement

I believe that mental health is a fundamental human right.

I believe that more needs to be done to empower people so that they are able to sustainably look after themselves and continue to grow into the future.

I want to empower people by sharing what I’ve learnt as a Clinical Psychologist.

I want to show people how I apply this knowledge to build skills, think helpfully and make long-lasting behavioural changes.

I want people to know how to thrive and flourish.

My Blog Posts

The knowledge and skills that I share will be based on both personal experience and the latest findings from the fields of psychology, medicine, business, neuroscience and behavioural economics.

All information will be presented in ways that are hopefully easy to understand and easy to apply. I want to introduce people to strategies that can be used on a regular basis as part of a sustainable and thriving lifestyle.

Welcome to my site. I hope that you enjoy your time here, and find many things that add value to your life!
