Kiira focuses on building a strong therapeutic relationship with each individual. Within this relationship, she helps her clients to connect with their emotions and navigate overwhelming or difficult events.
Kiira’s therapeutic style is genuine, compassionate and non-judgemental, but also challenging enough to foster growth and long-lasting change.
Kiira works collaboratively with her clients to help them to develop a better understanding of themselves and the underlying cause of their problems. She offers a safe space for her clients to challenge unhelpful automatic responses to themselves and others, while also empowering clients to find more adaptive and lasting methods of managing psychological distress.
Kiira completed her Master of Clinical Psychology at the University of Melbourne and has worked with both adolescents and adults. She has a particular interest in supporting women during periods of change and adjustment, such as the perinatal and midlife periods. Kiira tailors her therapeutic approach to each individual’s needs, drawing from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and attachment frameworks.
