BA Psychology (hons) and Master International Public Health.
Rachel is a provisionally registered psychologist whose genuine empathy and care creates a safe, welcoming environment for her clients. She appreciates the uniqueness of each and every person. Her approach therefore aims to create meaningful, collaborative and individualised interventions from a platform of evidence-based treatments.
Rachel has experience in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, complex trauma, emotion regulation difficulties, stress and workplace mental health. While taking a mostly Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, she also integrates elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBIs) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). All of her work is client-centred and strengths-based, understanding that the client is the expert in their own life, and that therapy is the vehicle through which they may learn skills that help make positive change.
Rachel completed a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) at the University of Sydney, followed by a Master of International Public Health at UNSW, leading her to work in the public health system in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for almost four years. She then returned to Australia, and while undertaking a Graduate Diploma and Honours in Psychology from Charles Sturt University (CSU), she worked as a counsellor for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, in the areas of complex trauma and workplace mental health. This is where she developed her passion for employee wellbeing, as well as for assisting organisations to create safe, healthy cultures that support the mental health of the workforce. She is currently in her final year of her Masters of Clinical Psychology at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
