Mandy holds an Honours degree in Psychology and has undergone training in Schema Therapy and Mental Health Interventions for Substance Abuse and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing for trauma. She is registered with AHPRA and State Insurance Regulation Authority.
Mandy has experience working with a diverse range of clients from adolescents to older adults. She firmly believes in collaborating with her clients from the outset. She states: “I listen, I guide and I teach but the client decides what to learn; what to ignore and when to grow”. She creatively combines evidence-based techniques from various modalities including Schema, ACT, CBT, – tailored for her client’s specific needs.
Mandy brings to her work a lived experience as a migrant, raising a blended culture family, in a low SES environment. Her experiences in her country of origin, previous workplaces; and personal life have imbued her with a passion to tackle unresolved trauma, and break the cycle of intergenerational harm.
With a sound understanding of the therapeutic alliance, Mandy provides a warm, safe space for her clients – from the very start to the very end of their healing journey. Mandy consults from both our Moorebank and Campbelltown rooms.
