School of Psychology

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am a Senior Lecturer and Placement Coordinator for Master of Psychology (Clinical and Health). I am also Clinical Psychologist and an AHPRA approved Supervisor and have worked in private practice for over 20 years. My PhD explored the theoretical framework of incorporating the Science of Learning with Compassion Focused theories applied in Education. My research interests are in examining the neuroscience and behavioural variables that impact on relationships between parents and children, and teachers and students. I am also interested in exploring this framework as it pertains to relationships in a wide array of settings to increase knowledge about the origins of dysregulated behaviour.
