Clare has been working as a psychologist since 1999 and is skilled in treating a wide range of psychological issues in adults, adolescents and children. Clare has worked in both public and private inpatient psychiatric settings, not-for-profit organisations, her own private practice, universities and schools. Clare has worked extensively as a supervisor of provisional psychologists in the Griffith University, UQ, QUT and USQ postgraduate clinical and psychology programs. Throughout her career, she has been active in the training of psychiatry registrars and postgraduate clinical psychology students as well as providing supervision for fully registered psychologists.
While Clare sees individuals, she is especially interested in Emotionally-Focussed Therapy (EFT) for couples. She is passionate about helping couples to achieve relationship satisfaction and security and about the EFT model, which is an evidence-based and highly effective form of couples therapy. Clare has developed expertise in treating sexual dysfunction; using EFT and sex therapy to help couples and individuals overcome their sexual struggles.
Clare is passionate about families and has focused on couples and family therapy within an attachment framework throughout her career. She uses Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples and families and finds that her clients respond well to this sensitive and respectful model of therapy.
Clare particularly enjoys using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with her individual clients. She finds that people flourish with this gentle, non-judgemental approach. ACT focuses on helping people to gain self-understanding, self- acceptance and to move towards what matters to them despite whatever obstacles might present themselves.
