Natalie is a Clinical Psychologist who enjoys working with children and adolescents. She has a particular interest in working with young people on issues relating to sleep, anxiety, and behavioural and social difficulties. Natalie strongly believes that children are better supported if their parents are also supported and puts a strong emphasis on providing parents with skills and strategies to manage difficult behaviours. This also extends to supporting local schools to implement more appropriate and individual strategies.
Natalie uses a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches, drawing from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Play therapy. She is passionate about helping children and adolescents who experience difficulty managing mental health concerns to live life more fully and freely.
As every client is different, Natalie values feedback from clients and uses feedback to better tailor treatment to suit the individual needs and story.
