Dr Bianca Sebben

I have always had an interest in hearing other people's stories, with compassionate consideration of how a person’s past influences their present-day experience.

 

My journey towards becoming a psychologist has required me to step into a place of vulnerability, to practice compassion for all parts of the self and to honour and accept my authenticity. I endeavour to support my clients to do the same so that they can live harmoniously with a more integrated sense of self.

As a psychologist, my approach to wellbeing is holistic in that it incorporates body, mind, spirit, community, and environment, which I learnt from having the privilege to work within Indigenous communities, both locally and abroad. 

Over the past decade, I have been working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and feel privileged to be working in this space.

I have an interest in working with complex trauma and dissociation, as well as supporting clients from a  harm minimisation approach to prepare for and integrate their experiences with non-ordinary states of conscious including psychedelics, plant medicine, breathwork and meditation 

 

I am also a board-approved supervisor and provide supervision to therapists working within the trauma and dissociation space. 

My other roles include:

  • Founding Board member for credentialling for the Australian Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Practitioners (AMAPP)

  • Co-founder and Director of Indigenous Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies (IPAT)

  • Contributor- FIVE 5 MeO DMT Information and Vital Education

  • Co- Chair Australian Association of Psychologists Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Interest Group

  •  Psychedelic- Assisted Therapist/Researcher

I welcome you to tell me your story and begin your journey to do the same.

About Me

My Approach

My approach to therapy is holistic in nature in that I endeavour to look at the broader picture of the human experience- body, mind, spirit, community and environment.

I work collaboratively with clients to meet them where they are at, in my commitment to Sensorimotor Psychotherapy principles of unity and non-violence

My approach has a somatic orientation with cognitive elements, exploring the current state of the nervous system and understanding how our past experiences may be stored and present in a variety of somatic symptoms through psychoeducation, skill building and reprocessing of information where appropriate
