After graduating with a Bachelor of Psychological Science with honours, Renee went on to gain a Masters and PhD in the field of Clinical Psychology, from which she carries forward an in-depth knowledge base and skillset.  Renee spent several years working in the University sector conducting research and lecturing, before moving to private practice where she sees patients, leads the clinical team and supports in the running of the practice.


Renee’s exceptional ability as a clinician is evidenced by the way she works with her clients. Her clinical approach is strongly client-centred, tailoring specific therapeutic skills and interventions to the needs of individuals and families and she takes a collaborative approach to therapy to support her clients to achieve their goals.

It is through these interactions that she shows her veritable love of working with people one-on-one, and both an excellent ability and authentic desire to want to help people.  It is these qualities that enable Renee to form great working relationships with her clients, allowing her to help them in the best possible way by creating a safe, caring, and supportive environment in which to work together, allowing them to be able to live the life they deserve.
