Lyn O’GradyCHILD, ADOLESCENT & ADULT PSYCHOLOGIST

    PERSONAL DETAILS AND INTERESTS (03) 9820 5577

     

     

    I am a registered Community Psychologist with a longstanding interest in the mental health of children, young people and families. I worked with parents in community settings for approximately 10 years as well as with children and young people in school settings for ten years. I have also developed resources for parents and school staff as part of the KidsMatter project at the Australian Psychological Society. In recent years I have developed a particular interest in suicide prevention and have completed studies in suicidology. I now regularly consult with and train mental health professionals in relation to suicide prevention. I am also a registered supervisor of psychology interns who work in a range of community-based settings.

     

    EXPERIENCE (AREAS OF EXPERTISE)

    I provide psychological therapy for children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with anxious feelings, coping, anger, family conflicts, friendships and bullying, loss and grief, suicidal thoughts, self-harm and school-related issues. I utilize play therapy, narrative therapy and solution-focused approaches alongside cognitive behaviour therapy.

    I also work with parents to help them tune into their children’s needs, increase confidence in their parenting skills and create new opportunities to enhance family communication and build positive relationships.
