Hi, I'm Amanda
I am a friendly mature aged clinical psychologist (in her middle years) who enjoys seeing a range of adults with various concerns and clinical presentations. I take a thorough approach to exploring issues, keep a commitment to striving for change, and endeavour to use best evidence-based therapy.
I have been told that I have a natural warmth, a genuine compassionate manner, and an ability to challenge clients respectfully, always with the goal of achieving the short and long-term outcomes that are desired.
