Gillian holds a Master of Clinical Psychology from the University of Melbourne. Gillian works with people who are facing difficulties that feel overwhelming and that may be challenging their ability to cope and/or live effectively. Gillian provides a safe and non-judgmental space, in which she and her clients work collaboratively to develop a broader, shared understanding of the factors contributing to their presenting problem. Gillian supports clients to develop new strategies to manage these challenges, drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Psychodynamic and Attachment-informed therapies, tailoring therapy to the needs of each individual client.
Gillian has worked in a variety of clinical settings with adolescents and adults presenting with a range of mental health difficulties. In addition to private practice, Gillian works as a psychologist at the Women’s Mental Health Service at The Royal Women’s hospital where she supports women experiencing emotional difficulties during pregnancy and in the early postnatal period.
