Counselling Psychologists provide assessment, diagnosis and psychotherapy for individuals, couples, families, and groups. They use evidence-based therapies and evidence-based therapy relationships to assist clients to resolve mental health disorders or psychological problems and move toward greater psychological health.
Counselling Psychologists have a distinct philosophical stance, recognising the strengths and resources of people at all levels of psychological functioning, working collaboratively with people in a therapeutic relationship to bring about meaningful change.
Since June 2000 Judy has been running her own private practice working with: ante-natal services; injury adjustment; pain and stress management; post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma debriefing and Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD), anxiety conditions; depression, phobias, panic disorders and grief and loss counselling.
Her area of special interest is teaching pregnant women relaxation and self-hypnosis to manage their pregnancies and prepare for labour.
Judy draws on a broad range of theoretical orientations and strategies, and her work is informed by a philosophy of enabling clients to self-manage their conditions.
