Courtney Lowther psychologist

Three beliefs that colour the way I work with my clients:

I believe…

We all need support from time to time on this crazy journey called life.

I believe…

Therapy is like exercise for your mind.

I believe…

There is power in feeling your feelings.

Get to know me

My secret talent:
My ability to nap almost anywhere anytime.

What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I believe in providing a space for people to feel safe and comfortable and to speak openly and freely about what is going on for them. People I’ve worked with have described me as kind, empathic and nonjudgmental. 

What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
Making sure I take time out to rest, reflect and recharge. Preferably on a tropical island!

My life motto:
Do all things with kindness.

My background and experience

I am originally from New Zealand and it’s there where I completed my psychology training before moving to Australia in 2015. Throughout the course of my career, I have worked in the public mental health and forensic mental health sectors.

I have experience working in private practice with a wide range of clients and presenting concerns.

I am a board approved supervisor and have experience providing supervision to students, registrars, and fully registered psychologists. I enjoy the process of supervision and helping supervisees reflect and develop their practices.
