WARM, EMPATHIC AND GOAL FOCUSED APPROACH

At Anna McDonald Psychology, we are committed to building a genuine and grounded practice, to create a collaborative and honest place for communication to achieve your goals.

I have extensive background as a registered psychologist for over 10 years in public and private sectors including defence, Workers Compensation and forensic settings (namely juvenile justice).

My approach to counselling is client directed and is dependent on your needs and goals. I can be very practical and solution focused or more responsive, caring and empathic depending on what you determine your needs are at initial assessment. I have a keen interest in working with couples and families as I believe that good relationships can be central to psychological and physical wellbeing. I have a special interest in sexual intimacy, trust, conflict and communication issues. My warm, caring approach and respectful non-judgemental manner helps provide a trusting, safe and collaborative environment to do this. I utilise cognitive- behavioural therapy, solution focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and some components of positive psychology.

I have been involved in quite extensive research and education with some of the most advanced specialists in this field and we developed relationship and family counselling as an integral part of a pain management program as we found this could have more impact on the rehabilitation of somebody’s injury than working with the client alone.

I am particularly passionate and committed to assisting couples develop skills and the necessary resilience to tackle life problems. I like challenging presentations, particularly given my forensic background.
