Hannah believes that therapy should be an open, safe space where clients can explore their difficulties without judgement. She takes a warm and empathic approach to all her sessions and aims to meet clients where they are at. Hannah takes the time to understand her clients’ unique experiences, from their own perspectives and individual histories. With this knowledge in mind, she helps clients gain insight and understanding into their difficulties, and helps them develop practical solutions to their problems. Hannah completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Sydney, and is a current candidate in the combined Master of Clinical Psychology and PhD at UNSW.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is one of the most well known and researched treatment approaches. CBT aims to help individuals become aware of inaccurate or unhelpful thinking styles and emotional responses, so they can view challenging situations more clearly, and respond to them in a more effective way.
Schema Therapy integrates elements of cognitive, behavioural, gestalt and object relations therapy in one unified approach. Schema therapy aims to identify unmet childhood needs, and provide a corrective experience to meet those needs.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) aims to help people manage difficult emotions, strengthen interpersonal relationships, and take actions towards a value-driven life. DBT teaches skills in four main areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) equips people with skills to unhook from unhelpful internal monologues, respond differently to uncomfortable feelings, and make behavioural change consistent with personal values.
