I pride myself on being on of the few psychologists who will help you investigate the underlying processes behind your difficulties. If you're prepared to commit to the therapeutic process to create meaningful change, then I hope you will contact me. Achieving sustainable change is not quick process, so if you're in need of immediate tools to alleviate symptoms in the short-term, I encourage you find one of the great professionals who offer more of that service. On the other hand, if you feel there are unconscious processes that you're ready to explore, my psychoanalytic approach might suit you more.

You may be feeling out of your depth in helping your teen to navigate their stress, overwhelm, or anxiety. Or you might be struggling with these things in your own life, and unsure how to go about feeling calm again and engaged in your life in ways that are fulfilling for you. Maybe you are finding that you are resorting to unhealthy methods of coping with the stressors in your own life and would like to find healthier ways of navigating life’s challenges and your relationships. If any of these scenarios describe you or you teen, you may benefit from a safe space to explore your challenges and find new ways of responding to them.
In therapy I like to be person-centred to keep your individual needs at the forefront of the session. I am compassionate, empathetic, and work with acceptance and respect at all times. Your needs and struggles will be approached in a non-judgemental, authentic, and gentle way to assist you in challenging times. I draw from my experience working with addiction and its effects on relationships, children, family issues, gender identity, refugees, injury and disability and complex mental health issues.

As a registered psychotherapist with a creative art therapy and pastoral background I work from a collaborative position of care, curiosity and empathy. I utilise a variety of approaches to match your specific goals and needs, facilitating understanding of your particular situation to overcome stuckness. One of the philosophies that resonates for me is, “The problem is the problem, the person is not the problem” (White & Epston, founders of Narrative therapy).
I am passionate about coming alongside you and helping you find solutions, healing and recovery. My goal is for you to come to a place where you are able to move forward, to gain clarity and reach a new level of better. I like to be client-centred and encouraging client autonomy as well as building a space for healthy collaboration and problem solving. I am a strong believer in an individual’s ability to find change and to break out of old patterns and cycles. For me it is important to foster an atmosphere of hope and perspective.
Think Feel Grow is a private psychology practice specialising in supporting the growth, mental health and wellbeing of children, young people, and their families. I am the psychologist and owner at Think Feel Grow. I support children and adolescents to understand and cope with thoughts and feelings, discover their strengths, build confidence, and do the things that are important to them. I also consult with parents and caring adults and explore parenting-based strategies to support their child’s wellbeing and development.
Are you a teen or young adult having difficulty with social or interpersonal challenges? Or perhaps you have already identified anxiety, depression, or ADHD as being an issue and you need a solution-focussed, original approach. I enjoy working with a range of clients, and I have a particularly keen interest in engaging with children, teenagers, and adults with these concerns to help them better manage their day-to-day and achieve their goals.
I offer a warm, open, collaborative therapy environment for those experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, and difficult life transitions. As a clinical psychologist, I also offer DBT-informed therapy for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder traits (or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder). Formally trained in CBT, I also utilise Schema Therapy to collaboratively work with you to develop new strategies for thinking and behaving that serve to improve the quality of your life.
My practice involves psychology sessions with children, teenagers and young women, outside of the clinical setting - also known as Walk and Talk Psychology. Walk and talk counselling is offered in playgrounds or whilst walking along the beach or foreshore. Clients may benefit from sessions outside of the consulting rooms if they are very nervous or anxious in an clinic-based setting; have difficulty focusing or sitting still; have previous negative experiences or difficulty building rapport with therapists; or would benefit from exposure therapy to treat anxiety, depression, specific fears or social phobias.

Nearly all of us have challenges in life. Perhaps some of the most difficult for us to adjust to are those concerning our intimate relationships, and sexuality. Relationship problems and problems with sex are two of the most common issues that people bring to counselling with me... these aspects of life frequently result in much distress within each of us, and much conflict if you're in a relationship. Let's face it, it's not easy talking about relationship problems and sex when we're already feeling distressed.
I believe it is important to work with clients - not dictate to them. My preferred treatment method is to focus on the areas that you want to work on. I believe a partnership not a prescription is important. Sticking to values means more than putting them on a website - it means actually living them. I am genuine, open and also have a sense of humour (though it is twisted/cynical/dark). I work clients across many areas from complex trauma, relationship issues, substance dependence, anxiety, depression and workplace issues. If I can't help you I will make sure you are linked in with someone who can so you don't get the run around.
I am a genuine, warm and compassionate therapist who has been practicing as a psychologist for over ten years. Using evidence-based techniques I work in collaboration with clients to assist them to find greater meaning, happiness, and wellbeing in their lives. I help clients to move from a place of struggle to one of greater choice, flexibility and freedom. The cultivation of self-compassion and non-judgmental awareness is fundamental to my approach and the basis for facilitating lasting change. I provide a safe and empathic space from which individuals can gain understanding and feel more empowered and resilient.
Change is possible. Challenges and difficulties offer opportunities for growth, and come with hidden blessings. Together, we can reposition your perspective so that your true potential is available. We can work together to understand how past patterns/messages about the self and others hold you back. We can explore the long term vision of your life and work out a plan to you get there. The possibilities are exciting, and the work invaluable. I hope to meet with you soon.
Life can throw obstacles in our path at times when we least expect it, frustrating our dreams, work, goals and our relationships. In times where we can feel overwhelmed, talking through our challenges with a dedicated, trained professional can help us feel listened to, understood and help us gain a different perspective on our difficulties. I seek to provide a calming, non-judgmental and safe space. Together, we will focus on the strengths and knowledge you already possess. I will help you reclaim your lost energy and confidence, to accept those things you cannot change, and refocus on taking effective action where it matters most.
Do emotions sometimes become too painful and overwhelming? Taking that first step to contact someone for help can be very difficult. Establishing a caring therapeutic relationship attuned to individual needs is central to Susanna’s work. As research supports, the therapeutic relationship is the most powerful determinant of a positive outcome in psychotherapy. Susanna encourages her clients to explore and become aware how early experiences shape their present thoughts and behaviours. Gaining a greater understanding of their circumstances, allows for an empowered sense of their ability to create positive change.
