Shannyn is a full Member of the Australian Psychological Society (MAPS), and is an approved Medicare provider. She has a warm and engaging therapeutic style, which assists clients to build a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship to explore their current concerns.
Shannyn brings a positive energy to working with adults, young people, and their families. She utilises a range of evidence-based psychological interventions in her individually tailored treatment plans, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuropsychotherapy, Exposure Therapy, Interpersonal and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), as well as Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, Mindfulness, relaxation skills, and play therapies for children.
Shannyn has a strong interest in Neuropsychotherapy and utilises the latest in neuroscience principles to teach and empower clients to understand not only what to do to reduce their symptoms, but why we do it. Shannyn’s focus is on helping clients build practical and useful tools to help address their concerns, which allows clients to walk away with a sense of empowerment and skills they can independently carry on into their lives.
Shannyn is currently on maternity leave and will return to seeing clients in 2018.
