Belinda works at our Richmond practice. She is a board registered Clinical psychologist with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. She uses a mixed style of therapy to meet the individual needs of her clients. She bases her work within a psychodynamic framework which stresses the importance of understanding that an individual is unique, that each person’s past shapes the present, and a person’s thoughts, feelings and experiences are not always within their awareness but may still influence their thoughts and actions. She also uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), interpersonal, systemic approaches, mindfulness and schema based approaches. Belinda has experience providing treatment for adjustment disorders, anger, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and grief and loss. In addition she has lots of experience working within the field of perinatal and infant mental health including antenatal/postnatal depression, anxiety and psychosis, and improving the parent-infant relationship. Belinda’s empathetic, caring yet challenging and engaging style has been particularly successful with clients who have a history of trauma including sexual, physical, and verbal abuse, bullying, natural disasters, and living in war-torn countries.
