Yulia Yakovtseva

Founder of

Psychology Bali

I am Doctor Yulia Yakovtseva, a Psychologist with a doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Founder of Psychology Bali.


At Psychology Bali I provide a dedicated Psychology and Counselling Service.

I offer assessment and evidence-based psychological treatment for individuals, couples and families.


My main therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systemic Therapy and Family System Therapy, Psychosynthesis, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

I also use Gestalt, Compassion Focused Therapy, Couples counselling, Transpersonal Psychology and Mindfulness techniques in my work.


In addition, I run workshops and retreats for women and couples, who are willing to connect their current Self with their “Ideal Self”.


I’m also competent in treating those, suffering from substance abuse and co-dependency along with co-existing conditions.


I am able to help individuals with depression and anxiety spectrum disorders, trauma and those experiencing difficulties in their relationships.


I am passionate about my work and I am approachable, supportive and compassionate.


In a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment, I explore your current difficulties.


I have training, expertise, and experience of working with clients from different cultural and religious backgrounds and work with clients irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or race.

Professional Accreditation and Experience

I have worked as a psychologist since 2007 and am accredited as a psychologist with the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and a former member of APS. 

I am also qualified in teaching Psychology.

I have worked in a wide range of services in Russia and Australia within the National Health Services, including Improving Access to Psychological Services, Organisational Psychology, Community Service for People with Substance Misuse and Co-Dependency.

I abide by the standards of the code, ethics and practice of the APS.

I am committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and I undergo regular training to keep my skills up-to-date.

I have been working in private practice since 2013. In addition to my private work, I also offer workshops and retreats running in Bali aiming for well-being and self-development.

The therapeutic techniques that I use will vary with each client, depending on what is most appropriate and may include but not limited to:

  • Helping you to connect with your emotions and feelings in the moment or the past

  • Dealing with trauma

  • Stress reduction

  • Managing crisis

  • Examining and creating more choice in your actions and relationships

  • Discovering and healing negative self-beliefs

  • Exploring and (re-) discovering your meaning and purpose

“My role as your therapist is to be accepting, non-judgmental, caring, compassionate, and skilful in helping you to explore your experience and create more choices in your life, so that you may heal, grow and reach the state of happiness.”
