About Dr Merryn Wild

The Care I Provide

Providing mental health care in Melbourne, I see adults, children and adolescents individually, as well as couples and families. I conduct assessments, arrange relevant investigations, and develop and implement management plans, prescribing medication, and undertaking psychological treatment wherever appropriate.

What Problems Can I Help With

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, the Motivational Interviewing method, relaxation strategies and skills training to manage mental illness and common emotional and psychological problems, including stress, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and relationship issues.

In cognitive behavioural therapy you will learn to notice and examine your thinking style and see how it contributes to how you feel. You can develop more useful ways of thinking, to help change your behaviour and develop more effective life skills.

I aim to develop with you a management plan that suits your needs. Most importantly, treatment will address current issues, as well as provide a ‘tool kit’ of skills for the future.

My Training and Experience

I graduated from the University of Melbourne medical school in 1988 and have worked over 25 years in public and private mental health.

I have held senior lectureships with the University of New South Wales and the University of Melbourne, and was awarded a conjoint appointment with the Department of Psychiatry, UNSW, for my work with curriculum development, and education of medical students.

I advocate mental health promotion, particularly in the work environment. I have completed the Monash Certificate in Clinical Occupational Medicine and an MBA at Melbourne Business School, affording specific insight in this area.

I am a member of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and engage in continuing medical education.
