Clinical Psychologist (registrar)
Anya sees children age 7+ , teens and adults in COMO
I've worked as a psychologist for several years before returning to university to gain my postgraduate training in clinical psychology (Curtin University here in Perth). Although I enjoy supporting clients with a range of concerns, I am particularly interested in helping people address their sleep difficulties and appreciate that sleep health is an important part of overall health and wellbeing.
Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder and to treat this I use the first-line recommended treatment for insomnia, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, experiencing poor sleep. I see clients who have sleep problems, such as insomnia, night-time fears, bedtime refusal, getting used to CPAP, shift work sleep disorder, overreliance on sleep medication, daytime fatigue, and circadian rhythm disorders. Some clients are also experiencing stress, anxiety, and/or low mood and I can provide therapy for these also.
