My background and experience

Ashleigh is a registered psychologist with seven years experience working across both private and public mental health settings. She uses a holistic, strengths-based, client centred approach in her work with both young people and adults.

Ashleigh believes in the importance of creating a collaborative and non-judgemental space when facilitating change with clients. Ashleigh is passionate about helping people to discover how underlying beliefs can alter the perception they have of their environment and their relationships. Depending on their individual needs, Ashleigh offers a range of evidence based therapeutic interventions for her clients to reach their goals.

Ashleigh completed her Masters of Forensic Psychology at Bond University. Ashleigh’s experience in this area included working in forensic settings and studying predictive factors for adolescent fire-setting behaviour. Ashleigh has also conducted research in the area of neuropsychology focusing on visual perception. Beyond the forensic setting Ashleigh has worked in private and public mental health settings.
