Our Staff - In Detail

Dr Anu Paradkar

Clinical Psychologist

Ms Anu Paradkar

I am a clinical psychologist, and have been practicing for more than 8 years. I work with young people and adults, and I have extensive experience in the assessment and management of issues that may manifest in cognitive, emotional, behavioural and/or relationship difficulties, and the way these issues adversely impacting one’s quality of life and relationships.

My approach in therapy is person centered, which means that I work with my clients to firstly help them understand what they want and need, and then I use a variety of approaches including cognitive-behavioural therapy (known as CBT) to help my clients achieve a greater awareness of their thoughts, and the relationship between their thoughts, emotions, physiological reactions and their subsequent behaviours.

I accept a broad range of referrals of clients with a variety of presenting issues, however I have particular experience and interest in working with clients who wish to address matters relating to: - Relationship difficulties (including marriage, family, partners and colleagues) - The effects of early trauma, including childhood sexual abuse - Depression and anxiety - Difficulties with managing emotions and/or mood swings, including anger - Work and study related pressure, and subsequent lack of motivation/direction

My own philosophy is that we all have the capacity to live life to the fullest, and that sometimes we need a specialist to help us recognise what sometime we could be coping better, and assist us to work towards the goals and mindsets that help us feel more fulfilled and passionate.

I have qualifications in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology, and have published research in scientific journals examining the Physio-Kundalini Syndrome, Stress and Coping in Students, and Students’ Attitudes to Seeking Psychological Assistance. I have also written for the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series.
