Belinda Pacella

Psychologist

Clinical Psychology Registrar

BPsych (Hons), MPsych (Clin), MAPS

Belinda is a warm psychologist who works with adults and young people experiencing a range of emotional difficulties, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, self-esteem issues and relationship difficulties. She values building an authentic therapeutic relationship where clients feel safe to explore parts of their inner world in a non-judgmental and empathic space.

Belinda adopts an integrative approach, and is currently undertaking training in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), an evidence-based therapy that understands emotional suffering as arising from our use of avoidant or defensive mechanisms that can disconnect us from our emotional experiences and create barriers to authentically connecting with ourselves and others. She also draws upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness, adopting a tailored approach that is guided by each client’s unique needs. Belinda is most passionate about working with her clients to achieve emotional wellbeing, with the aim of lasting change.
