Dr. Leanne McEvoy
(DClinPsych) EMDR Accredited Practitioner (EMDRAA)
"May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within."
I am a senior psychologist experienced at treating a wide range of difficulties including more complex presentations.
With over 20 years’ experience working in both public and private mental health settings I am available for work with adults.
I have strong focus on strengths, values and preferred stories of life and identity to promote recovery, healing and growth.
A pragmatic approach ensures that skills and insights from therapy are taken into the client’s everyday life.
I provide a nurturing, creative space which offers warmth, humour and safety.
