Psychologist

I am delighted to introduce myself to the Conquer Health Alliance team.

My name is Cassandra and I am a provisional Psychologist undertaking my internship with Conquer Health Alliance. I have had experience working with various psychological and emotional disorders, both under the NDIS scheme and private practice.

I have always been drawn to other people’s stories and fascinated by the inner workings of the mind. I am a caring, and sensitive person, compelled to connect with the people I work with in a meaningful way, and on a deeper level.

Counselling for me is all about having a safe relationship in which you can examine and express yourself, and show up exactly as you are. I strive to help you feel seen and heard and will meet you with compassion wherever you are in your emotions at the moment, supporting you to process your thoughts whether you prefer to do so in an introverted or an extroverted way.

I regularly engage in counselling for myself, which is an important part of my self-care and development, and believe that learning, growing and evolving is a life-long process. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of therapy, finding strength in vulnerability, and the freedom of being able to accept and honour all parts of yourself.

My counselling style draws from Attachment Theory, Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma-informed Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, and Creative Therapies. The therapeutic connection we form and the approach that I take will be unique to each individual.

I see you as the person who is the expert in your experiences and in your life, and in therapy with me, we work holistically taking into account how societal systems impact on your emotional well-being, the roles you play in your relationships, and your identity ~ for all genders.

Areas of interest:

• ASD

I look forward to meeting with you all and starting our journey together.
