About

Hi! My name is Mel and I am a Clinical Psychologist with 10 years of experience. I enjoy working with individuals 16+ years presenting with anxiety disorders, eating disorders, mood difficulties, emotional difficulties, low self esteem, adjustment and life stressors, burnout, trauma and body image. I believe that we all have strengths that we draw upon and help us function in the world and it my job to help you identify what these are and how to utilise them. Outside of seeing clients, I also really enjoy supervising other psychologists as a board approved supervisor. I am a ANZAED eating disorder credentialed psychologist.
To help clients achieve the change they are seeking, I use a range of treatment modalities including CBT, ACT, DBT, Schema Therapy, EMDR, CBT-E (Eating Disorders) and MANTRA (Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adults).
In the therapy space, I am enthusiastic, down to earth and nurturing, and occasionally like to use humour. I believe in the importance of a good therapeutic relationship as well as empowering my clients to understand whats bought them to therapy and how to take steps towards the life they want to live.
