Kate Hindson: Registered Psychologist

I am registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Authority (AHPRA) and I am also a Psychology Board Approved Supervisor.

I have been working as a Psychologist since 2011 and have worked in Public Mental Health, Non-Government and Private practice settings. In this time, I have gained experience in providing clinical support to young people and adults who are experiencing adjustment based difficulties, through to severe and complex mental health difficulties.

My focus in sessions initially is on learning to understand how and why your mental health difficulties have developed, and then in sharing this knowledge with you to develop your own understanding of yourself. I work mostly on identifying and adjusting unhelpful thoughts and life patterns that are perpetuating people’s struggles with their mental health. My goal in working with you is to identify and implement the right skills to help you overcome your difficulties and to support you to get to a place where you feel like you can navigate these struggles independently.

I have a calm and welcoming nature and aim to keep sessions light hearted while still being able to tackle the difficult issues. I take a gentle and direct approach in sessions to seek out what you may need from not only your overall therapy journey but also within each individual session to ensure you get the most out of each appointment.

My main interest areas are working with people who suffer from Anxiety disorders or perfectionism. I also have a strong interest in supporting people to overcome Post Traumatic Stress Disorder through the use of Cognitive Processing Disorder.

I am experienced in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Schema Therapy.

I am currently taking referrals for adolescents aged 14 and upwards and adults.

My areas of interest and experience include:

  • Anxiety Disorders (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social phobia, Specific phobia, Health Anxiety)
  • Mood difficulties (Including Bipolar Affective Disorder)
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Stress and adjustment difficulties
  • Perfectionism
  • Self-harm and suicidality
  • Psychosis
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
