Clinical Psychologist

Dr Carrie-Anne Garvey (limited availability for evening & early morning sessions)

I am a highly experienced clinical psychologist, practicing in the public and private sector for 15 years.  I specialise in therapy-based treatment of psychological services, including all areas of mental health issues, perinatal, sexual health and gender, oncology, rehabilitation, and modern issues impacting people’s lives.  I am passionate about supporting people learn to thrive in all areas of life through specialist assessment, and treatment of emotional, thinking, behavioural, physical and interpersonal difficulties.  I pride myself on providing a strongly client-centred, ethical, non-judgemental, collaborative, warm and respectful approach that nurtures a safe environment for clients to openly and honestly explore, express and reflect on the challenges they may be facing as well as to develop the tools that may be needed to navigate such challenges.

I am a formal representative for the LGBTIQ community, Palliative Care network and Staff Wellbeing Advisor within Public Health, and I continue to improve educational programs for staff and clients aimed at promoting improved mental health, coping, resilience, communication, functioning and wellbeing.  I have publications in the areas of parent-child attachment, depression, antisocial behaviour/crime prevention, employee wellbeing, adjustment to spinal cord injury and motor control.  I continue to be involved in research projects to develop the field of psychology and ensure I deliver contemporary, evidence-based treatment, optimally tailored to meet the unique needs of the client.  I specialise in working with individuals, families and groups aged 18 years and over, who are dealing with issues related (but not limited to):

  • Anxiety, Panic and Phobias
