A Meaningful Life Is Within Reach

Meet Shelley

Clinical Psychologist, Author, & Researcher

In my life I take on many roles. I am a psychologist, author, historical lecturer, research psychologist, wife, and mother. I also have lived experience of neurodivergence.

My road into psychology has been long and started with my own personal development to improve my life at 22 years old. I remember at this time in my life not believing in myself and thinking that I was just dabbling in psychology as a hobby, that it would never really go anywhere. I had no idea I would go on to be a practising therapist, obtain a PhD, or a clinical masters. Yet here we are. Never give up on yourself even if it takes a long time to achieve your dreams.

Therapy

Psychology Sessions (in person at Pullenvale, Qld or telehealth)

Please note my books for therapy are closed and I am not waitlisting clients as I cannot offer sessions in a reasonable time frame. Unfortunately, I am also unable to offer you referral options at this time. I respectfully ask you to please not contact me with enquiries for therapy or referral options as I will not be able to reply.

 

When my books are open, please note I do not see teens under 17 years and I do not do family therapy or couples counselling. I do however, work on relationships and/or parenting with clients individually.

Autism/ADHD Assessments (in person at Pullenvale, Qld or telehealth)

Please click here for more detailed information about assessments before emailing me in case it is already covered on this page as I try to put the most common questions asked there (including costs, process, FAQs).
