Torgeir Crisford-Solemdal

Hi, I'm Torgeir

I'm a kind and friendly Psychologist with over a decade of experience. I have spent the last 15 years having deep conversations with over thousand individuals. My warm and welcoming demeanor creates a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. With a wealth of experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures, I understand that each person is unique. I believe in a personalised approach, tailoring our conversations to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual I work with. My ultimate goal is to help you overcome your challenges and reach your full potential.

I'm originally from Norway, but have been calling Australia home for the past 18 years. My educational background include three degrees, with the main one being a Masters in Clinical Psychology. I have worked in tertiary settings with young adults (18+) and less young adults for most of my career, in addition to private practice. I have had around 7000 conversations with over a thousand different individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds - all approached with an intention to make things better for the person I am speaking with.

My Approach

I bring my kindness, attention and experience to every session, working with you as an individual with unique needs and goals. My approach is both directive and gentle, meaning I will guide and support you while being mindful and considerate of your personal journey. With my years of experience, I will help you gain insight about your childhoods impact on the present, develop effective coping strategies, learn how to create better relationships and help you make positive changes in your life. I understand that every person is unique and therefore deserves a personalized approach. I am here to work with you and help you achieve the outcomes you desire.
