I started my career as a Psychologist as a Student Counsellor at Bond University for 12 years before going into private practice on the Gold Coast. I now live in Brisbane, and my rooms are at the New Farm Wellness Centre. I employ a warm, empathetic counselling style, adopting a flexible approach tailored to suit my client’s needs. I draw on a variety of treatment approaches, including Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness Approaches. I have a particular interest in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
Sessions usually last 50 minutes and the time between sessions is decided after completion of the initial session. In the first session, Kate typically gathers information about what brings you to therapy, your concerns, what’s been going on in your life and any symptoms and significant experience.
Phone and video counselling, also known as telehealth is effective, confidential and convenient if you live in a rural or remote area, or it doesn’t suit you to visit a clinic in person. Sessions usually last 50 minutes; all you need is a computer, an internet connection and a private room.
Here I explain various psychological topics and explain them in a clear and simple way.
