Andrew is an empathetic, caring, and genuine person-centred provisional psychologist who is passionate about mental health and the ways in which psychology can assist people in living lives that they love and are truly proud of.
Andrew deeply understands the role that good mental health plays in contributing to the quality of people’s lives, and in strengthening their relationships with their families, friends, communities, organisations, and boarder connections.
Andrew works with a diverse range of clients and uses several evidence based psychological interventions and techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness, among others.
In addition to his training in psychological science, Andrew has years of experience working as a health musician across Melbourne, including time at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, where he used music therapy to assist and support patients and their loved ones throughout their journeys.
Andrew believes that our mental health exists on a continuum and is something that we can meaningfully engage with as part of a healthy lifestyle, all throughout our lifetime. Just as we engage with our physical health by caring for, nourishing, strengthening, and training our bodies, Andrew believes that we can engage with our mental health in similar ways. By caring for, nourishing, strengthening, and training our minds, we can help ourselves to improve our mental fitness, flexibility, and health, which can contribute to us living deeply enriching and meaningful lives, while also allowing us the opportunity to heal and recover from our psychological injuries.
We are having trouble keeping up with demand here at Island Psychology.
