Our Staff - In Detail

Emma O'Connell

Clinical Psychologist

B.A. (Psych), PGDip (Psych), MPsych (Clinical), MAPS

I work with clients who feel overwhelmed by life, have difficulty managing anxiety, stress, or low mood, and who find their lives shutting down as a consequence of these difficulties. I work with clients in a gentle and patient manner to enable ways and means of building life back up again.

My therapeutic style is based in values clarification, compassion, and client-driven behavioural change. I often incorporate these approaches with ACT and other mindfulness-based approaches, cognitive behavioural therapy, schema-focused therapy, and insight-oriented therapeutic approaches.

I work with clients who feel challenged by:

  • stress and anxiety
  • substance abuse
  • low mood
  • difficult emotions
  • values-adherent behaviour
  • PTSD
  • panic
  • panic
  • irritability
  • impulsive decision making

I consult at the East Melbourne and Sunshine practices.
