CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST

& CERTIFIED SCHEMA THERAPIST

FITZROY NORTH, VICTORIA

Hello

Hello there, a very warm welcome! You may have found me because you received a recommendation from someone you know or your GP referred you. Please look around and see if my approach resonates with you. Feel free to get in touch if I can help with anything.

ABOUT ME

BaPsych, PgDipPsych, MaPsych (Educational), MaPsych (Clinical)

Clinical Psychologist, Certified Schema Therapist (standard)

 

My name is Tena (pronounced Ten-uh), I have been working with clients for 15 years and continue to get enormous satisfaction from connecting with clients and helping them build better lives. I provide a bespoke service, tailoring the therapy to each client and working collaboratively to achieve a person's goals.

The main therapy I offer, Schema Therapy, focuses on treating the underlying factors that drive a person’s difficulties. This treats the cause, not the symptoms. Schema Therapy addresses problems at their core by breaking lifelong dysfunctional patterns and meeting psychological needs.

Clients who seek me are usually professionals, aged 24+ who have tried therapies like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). They want to try Schema Therapy to build insight and to use this as a catalyst for lasting change.

I have held full registration with the Psychology Board of Australia (PSY0001126432), and have an area of practice endorsement (AoPE) in Clinical Psychology. I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST). Please see here for Covid safe practices.
