Experience & Approach
Fiona has over 15 years experience as a Clinical Psychologist working with adults, children, adolescents, young people and parents. She has worked in numerous settings, including research, hospital, community mental health and private practice. The majority of her experience has been working with adolescents, young people and their families who present with anxiety, mood disorders, grief, psychosis, trauma, chronic pain, and emotion dysregulation.
Fiona is interested in assisting adults and young people to improve all aspects of their mental health, wellbeing and relationships. Fiona’s approach is informed by Family Systems Theory and mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Fiona has a special interest in working with the unique challenges related to either being a twin or multiple or parenting multiples (being a parent of multiples herself).
Fiona has found that more sustainable changes for symptomatic children occur when parents are included in the treatment. Therefore, Fiona will always see adolescents with one or both parents, or work exclusively with parents. Fiona has experience working with clients from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds.
