Gabrielle New, the founder of My Way therapy, is an Occupational Therapist with over 30 years’ experience working with people to support life changes in a direction people dream to move in, either as client’s or workers. 

Gaby created My Way Therapy to support her modern lifestyle which includes; rural living, international travel and tapping into the options and flexibility that contemporary internet technology can offer. She realised many people have similar lifestyles and find it difficult to access quality support and therapy treatment that caters to individual needs in a person-centred, holistic and creative way.

People who live rurally or in ex-pat communities or just want the convenience of having their therapy online in a confidential safe space, who might otherwise find it hard to access good supports within their community now have access to My Way Therapy online.


Gaby is a Senior Mental Health Occupational Therapist (OT). She specialises in working with people who experience Addiction issues, Complex Mental Health and Trauma Symptoms and working to support people through major life transitions to create the life they want to lead. In addition to this, she has 30+ years providing Clinical Supervision for other workers in a range of health, welfare and education settings.

Gaby is a practising artist and supports you to develop your innate creativity to find creative directions and solutions in your life.

As an OT she offers a holistic and person-centred approach taking into account your Mind, Body, Emotions, Environmental and Spiritual needs and the relationship between these aspects of self to reach your optimal functioning in what you want to and have to do in your life.

Gaby has worked in a range of settings in Australia, The UK and New Zealand giving her a breadth of experience so that she can offer you quality, professional, personalised support. She is passionate about learning and has acquired many tools that she shares with her clients in structured, process-driven, action-based interventions because… If nothing changes, Nothing changes.

Our products include:

Individual online therapy, where a skilled, trained and experienced professional will non-judgementally and confidentially support you to make important life changes on your healing journey.

Walk and Talk which is face to face on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria 1.5 hrs from Melbourne and is designed to enhance the therapeutic experience by including Walking and Nature as treatment components to offer a more layered and deeper experience to the healing and change process.

Dream Work with My Way Therapy is a powerful process to examine deep unconscious material that is revealed to us nightly through our dreams.
The work is non-interpretive (You are the expert of your dreams) but a process of exploration supported by a trained therapist to examine the archetypal and symbolic content of dreams to discover how they may inform our waking lives. We honour the dreams by creating actions and rituals to bring into daily life.

Clinical Supervision is a reflective practise tool for workers to process their work with clients. My Way Therapy offers individual Supervision for occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers, mental health, community services, school counsellors, youth, aboriginal and drug and alcohol workers and for anyone supporting the wellbeing of others. Specializing in working with Complex Clients, Gaby provides reflective practice opportunities with a trauma focus to individual clinicians at all levels of practice and group supervision can be organised via our contact page.
