Provisional Psychologist (Telehealth)

Meg is currently a provisional psychologist who prides herself on being warm, open, trauma-informed and non-judgemental. She believes in building relationships first and working collaboratively with clients and their families within a biopsychosocial framework rather than a medical model. This person-centred model emphasises the importance of understanding health and illness in their fullest context, recognising how interwoven our biology, psychology, and social factors can be.

Prior to studying psychology, Meg was a Primary School Teacher for 15 years. She enjoyed working with children, adolescents, and their parents/carers and saw first-hand how mindfulness practice, goal-setting and being a non-judgemental listener were key components of maintaining positive emotional and social wellbeing in her classes.  Meg has a special interest in mindfulness-based practices, perinatal psychology, adolescent mental health, Health at Every Size (HAES) and working with clients of all ages with eating disorders, disordered eating and body distress. Additionally, Meg is fascinated by the autonomic nervous system and how we can learn to manipulate our own nervous systems for psychological benefit.

Meg has experience working from a CBT and Motivational Interviewing framework and has specific training in teaching Yoga for Eating Disorders, Body Positive counselling, Trauma Focussed Therapy for PTSD and Complex PTSD, and is currently undertaking training in CBT-e and Maudsley Family Based Therapy. Meg holds a Bachelor of Teaching/Bachelor of Arts (Primary) double degree, a Graduate Diploma of Psychology, a Bachelor of Science (Psychology) (Honours), and is currently completing her Masters in Professional Psychology. She is a member of the Australian Psychological Society, the Australia and New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders (ANZAED) and has national registration with AHPRA.
