Clinical Psychology Trainee/Provisional Psychologist (she/her)
B.Arts (Hons), PhD Candidate
Peta works with adolescents (16+) & adults and has a strong interest in helping those with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and OCD-related problems, such as health anxiety, body dysmorphia, and body-focused repetitive behaviours (e.g., trichotillomania, and excoriation/skin-picking). Peta has worked with clients with gender and sexuality uncertainties and offers a judgement free space to explore their values and identity.
Peta’s therapeutic style is open, non-judgemental, and accepting. She works collaboratively with clients to help them to make sense of what is going on in their lives and identify what may be contributing to the difficulties that has brought them to therapy. Focusing on her client’s individual strengths to improve coping skills, she draws on a range of evidence-based modalities to provide an individualised experience of therapy to best meet her client’s needs.
Peta currently holds provisional registration, which means that she is in the final stages of completing her Masters of Clinical Psychology and is under the supervision of our Clinic Director (Dr Kath Boekamp).
She currently only works one day a week due to completing other Practicum placements, but does offer after hours appts on the day she does work.
