It’s time for a paradigm shift around how we raise mental health both locally and globally. I strive to be a pioneer in this shift by focusing time, skills and resources into creating awareness and solutions to this burgeoning problem. I also aim to provide accessible, effective, real and empowering therapy that is free of stigma, and full of results.
Emma Pratt, 2018
Emma Pratt is an experienced and dedicated psychologist specialising in youth and family treatment. Emma’s work supports the improvement of interpersonal relationships and behaviour, especially within the context of school and family, with a particular expertise in post-traumatic stress disorder and complex trauma. She believes in focusing on life-skill development, using evidence-based clinical interventions that encompass mindfulness, the mindbody connection, and compassion for self and others. Her approaches also take into account the complexities found within schools and families, and their influence on the social and emotional wellbeing of young people.
Emma has over a decade’s experience working within the psychology space, covering all angles of youth and family including: education, organisational psychology with staff, school psychology with students staff and families, tutoring at a university level, and now clinical practice within the in private space.

She has also learned how to advocate on behalf of students and teachers in the favour of a child’s needs
Due to her outstanding career performance and ongoing dedication to youth & family psychology support, Emma was approached in 2018 by Michelle Hopkinson to cofound what is set to be a highly influential psychology clinic in Australia.
