Clinical Experience and Background
Sue originally completed her six year training as a Registered Psychologist (Generalist) in the South West and moved back to Perth in 2012. Her work as a country psychologist provided significant opportunity for broad clinical experience.
Sue's experience includes several years of assessing and counselling adults with complex co-morbid mental and physical health conditions, many of whom had also had serious psycho-social problems such as criminality and long term unemployment. Trauma was not uncommon in this cohort. In contrast to this client group Sue has also provided psychological counselling to a wide range of professionals including those in senior management, academics and peers. She has experience in mediation, critical incident, vocational rehabilitation and EAP.
Sue is an experienced group facilitator and has additional qualifications in this area. She has facilitated learning within corporate, school, university and community settings in the areas of stress management, grief and loss, managing depression and anxiety, suicide prevention, workplace bullying/harassment, conflict resolution, parenting skills and many other topics.
