Bronwyn

 bronwyn-300high-2I have completed my Bachelor of Psychology and Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology from Queensland University of Technology (QUT).   After this, I completed my two year internship program (thus 6 years in total).

I worked in the employment services industry for 10 years, before moving into private practice.

In the employment services industry, for many of those years I worked for a community services organisation as their North Brisbane Psychologist. This work involved me working with a wide range of clients with different presenting issues including: Mental health, Drug and alcohol issues, Grief and loss, trauma, Homelessness, financial difficulties, family and relationship stress, clients at risk of suicide, and vocational issues (such as uncertainty about vocational direction and vocational goals).

Since then, I have moved into private practice working as a psychologist with clients of various ages (including children) again with a various range of presenting issues. I have also worked with VVCS (Veteran Affairs Counselling Service), ATAPS (Brisbane Minds), Workcover, CTP (Compulsary Third Party Insurance Claims) and Medicare referrals. I use a range of treatment options including CBT and ACT. I believe the most importance aspect of counselling is ensuring the client feels comfortable to discuss their concerns in a supportive environment, where they will be listened to and heard.
