Leading the field with our Experienced Specialists…

While some clinics specialise in one or two areas of practice, Positive Mind Works has deliberately recruited exceptional practitioners to cover a diverse range of expertise and backgrounds. What do all practitioners have in common, they share the values of Positive Mind Works and are committed to providing safe, effective and flexible options for individuals, couples and employers.

Our psychologists all have a minimum of three years post registration experience. Each of them registered with their national professional psychology body, whether that is Psychology Board Australia, New Zealand or HPC (UK).All of them are committed towards empowering you to make positive change within your life, and understand this means different things for different people. Research tells us that at least half of the benefit you receive from any talking therapy is down to the quality of the ‘fit’ between client and practitioner. I like to think of it as trying on a pair of shoes, we help you to find a pair that feels good and allows you to jump hurdles!
