Dr. Melinda Millar

Clinical Psychologist

BA, Grad Dip Adol & Child Psych, D Psych, MAPS

As a clinical Child, Adolescent and Family Psychologist with over 20 years experience, I am passionate about helping young people and their families achieve better emotional and mental health.

In my work, I draw on a range of treatment modalities including cognitive-behavioural therapy, interpersonal therapy, mindfulness and psycho-education with individuals, families and groups



In my practice I provide psychological services for children, adolescents and their families for a wide range of issues including:

- anxiety and phobias,

- depression,

- low self-esteem,

- school refusal,

- social difficulties,

- behavioural problems,

- self harm,

- grief and loss,

- adjustment to parental separation and divorce,

- eating difficulties,

- sleep disorders, and

- anger management problems.

I completed my doctoral thesis in the area of school refusal and have worked successfully with many school-refusing children and their families.

My background experience is in community, educational and private mental health settings including the Centre for Developmental Psychiatry and Psychology at Monash Medical Centre; Mental Health Services for Kids and Youth at the Royal Children?s Hospital; Melbourne Girls? College, Albert Road Centre for Health, and Surrey Hills Medical Centre where I have been consulting as a psychologist for the past five years.

As a member of the Australian Psychological Society and the Australian Clinical Psychologists Association, I am committed to the ethical standards of these associations and ensure the highest standard of confidentiality and professional practice is maintained.
