Psychologist: Grace Holland

Hello! I am a Registered Psychologist with full registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and hold a masters degree in Clinical Psychology.

I have extensive experience working with young people and their support networks across both government and non-government settings. I have worked a great deal with young people aged 15 – 25 and also have experience working with younger children and adults.

I have experience delivering a number of evidence-based therapeutic approaches which include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Motivational Interviewing. I also draw from Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness.

I love to incorporate the individual strengths and interests of my clients into my therapeutic approach and like to think outside the square. I have a gentle, down to earth and client-centred approach to therapy. That means that my goal is to ensure sessions are suited to you and your individual needs.

Additionally, I am passionate about working with young people who have experienced various forms of trauma (including abuse and neglect). I have experience in a trauma-focused approach to therapy.

I work with children, adolescents and adults who may be seeking assistance with the following:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Developmental and Complex Trauma
  • Attachment concerns
  • Relationships (including caregiver-child relationships)
  • Adjustment issues (relating to life changes such as separations, transitions etc)
  • Identity and self-esteem
  • Stress Management
  • Mood Disorders (including Depression)
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Body Image and Disordered Eating
  • Drug and Alcohol use
  • Grief and Loss
  • Behavioural challenges in children and adolescents

My areas of professional interest include incorporating the evidence-based use of art, movement, music and adventure in Psychology. I aim to further develop my skills in these areas.

I also have experience working with clients from diverse cultures and have an  investment in increasing my ability as a culturally safe practitioner.
