Malcolm Evans

Malcolm is a versatile and dynamic therapist whose approach is grounded in humour, compassion and genuineness. He understands that the idea of therapy can stir up all kinds of thoughts (worries) and feelings and seeks to help clients overcome this through his down to earth and personable style.
Malcolm’s approach to therapy is based on one central idea … “the whole point of seeing a psychologist is for things to change”. Changes that are for the better and changes that last. In reality, this is much easier said than done, but this is just a fact and not an obstacle. Malcolm works to build and nurture each client’s confidence in themselves and their ability to achieve their therapeutic goals.

Malcolm will introduce you to new ideas and perspectives about yourself, relationships and life and will actively challenge what you think, believe and hold to be true. His experience includes working with all client groups – families, couples, individuals, adolescents and children.

Some of the issues that Malcolm works with include, but are not limited to:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Trauma and abuse (PTSD)
  • Personality disorders
  • Self-harm and suicide
  • Drug and alcohol issues
  • Grief and Loss
  • Relationship and attachment difficulties
  • Identity formation
  • Working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds
  • Family of origin issues
  • Cybersafety (including computer gaming)

Clinical Experience and Background:

Malcolm has been a practising psychologist and Member of the Australian Psychological Society for over 20 years. He has extensive experience working in the WA prison system, in addition to his work in programs for the homeless, worker’s compensation/rehabilitation, domestic violence and youth outreach.

Malcolm utilises empirically validated treatment approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MCBT). He also draws on Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Existential Therapy and Provocative Therapy as well as incorporating knowledge and ideas from the fields of biology, neuroscience and philosophy. Malcolm has also recently completed training in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).
