Craig Parker

Principal Psychologist

APPOINTMENT HOURS
Thursdays: 10am - 7pm
Friday: 10am - 7pm

Craig is a qualified psychologist with over 10 years working in mental health. He has a broad range of experience having worked in the areas of men’s mental health, adult mental health, suicide intervention, and his current role as a psychologist at a local youth service counselling teenagers and young adults.

Making the decision to seek counselling can be difficult and may give rise to feelings of anxiety, which is normal. With this in mind, Craig strives to create a safe and supportive place for you to work through the challenges you are facing. The research shows that the largest predictor of your success in therapy is the quality of relationship that you are able to build with your psychologist. As such, Craig places great importance on creating a supportive relationship of mutual trust and respect, where your goals and input are highly valued, and the approach tailored to you. To create this tailored approach he draws from evidenced-based psychological treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, Ericksonian brief therapy and Mindfulness training.

Leesa Taylor

Psychologist

APPOINTMENT HOURS
Friday: 9am - 6pm

** PLEASE NOTE THAT LEESA WILL BE ON MATERNITY LEAVE FROM JUNE UNTIL OCTOBER 2019**

As a psychologist, I place great emphasis on building a safe and trusting working relationship with clients. I like to work collaboratively and ensure your voice is heard and respected throughout the therapeutic process. I believe it is important that this space is established and maintained so that you are able to comfortably bring yourself into each session. 

I have an interest in working with people who have experienced trauma and seeking to heal and make sense of this experience. Together, I hope to help you integrate any distressing situations and trauma you have experienced, with the focus on allowing you to move towards your goals in life.

I am also particularly interested in working with couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship, whether that be to a communication breakdown, conflict, transition, infidelity or loss of connection. I hope to support you to re-connect, find new ways of relating to each other and regaining a sense of shared understanding.I also work with individuals experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, and loss/grief.

My therapeutic approach draws from a range of evidence-based therapies, primarily schema therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) and integrating psychodynamic principles. I have experience working with both adults and teenagers in various settings. At present I also work as a Psychologist in the not for profit sector.
