Psychologist: Verity Clarkson

My current role with  Inspired Psychology involves facilitating the Inspired Psychology SociAble Teens group therapy program for the 11-14 and 14-17 age groups. I am not currently taking referrals for individual assessment or therapy. 

I am a Psychologist with General Registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). I gained my Registration in 2002, whilst working as a Research Assistant in a Young People’s Mental Health Service in Melbourne. This work involved assisting with research projects investigating the development of Personality Disorder in young people.

I have worked as a Psychologist in a variety of settings and have extensive experience working with adults and young people presenting with a wide range of difficulties. I utilise a range of evidence-based therapies including Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).  I also utilise Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and interventions from the field of Positive Psychology. I strive to stay up to date with the research literature and evidence based treatments, and regularly attend professional development activities.
