Amelie Nguyen

Clinical Psychologist

Master of Clinical Psychology, WSU

Bachelor of Psychology (Hons - 1), WSU

I am dedicated to empowering individuals to overcome isolation, low mood, worry, low self-esteem, stress, and interpersonal and relationship challenges. I am honest and respectful in my approach and provide a warm, supportive atmosphere for individuals to comfortably share their experiences in a way that makes them feel safe and valued.

 

At the heart of my approach is the belief in the importance in living a meaningful life. I work collaboratively with each person to overcome interpersonal challenges and equip them to make important life decisions using trusted strategies for effective communication, problem solving and decision making.
