Recovery with the help of a therapist/psychologist is very possible. In reference to how you will recover and get your confidence back, it will somewhat depend on the therapeutic approach that your eventual therapist/psychologist uses, so your question is hard to answer.
On looking for a psychologist, there are a couple of things to consider:
1) Finding someone with the right qualifications and experience. To find a psychologist, you can go to www.psychology.org.au and use the ‘Find a Psychologist’ link. This will provide you with names and contact details of psychologists in your area. Some psychologists have their own websites which can inform you about their skills, experience, and qualifications. Unfortunately your situation isn't uncommon, so you should be able to find a psychologist with relevant expertise with a bit of research. You could also talk with a GP you trust, as they might be able to suggest someone in your area.
2) Sometimes it can take a little while to find a psychologist with whom you feel comfortable, and this is something that you can't determine well from a website. You could try giving them a call and having a chat with them before making an appointment, as this could give you an indication. But if you make an appointment and don't think you'll feel comfortable working with them, it's okay to try someone else.
