    I am a registered psychologist and clinical psychology registrar. I am also a lecturer in the Master of Psychology (Clinical) program and research fellow at Victoria University in Melbourne, as well as a conjoint lecturer in psychiatry at The Black Dog Institute in Sydney. My research involves (a) brain-based approaches to understanding obsessive-compulsive and related disorders and (b) digital approaches to delivering cognitive behavioural therapies.

    My therapeutic approach is warm and collaborative (with some occasional humour along the way). I work together with each client to develop a shared understanding of their situation and what they would like to get out of therapy. I use research-based therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help clients learn and grow. I also use research from the social sciences to help clients understand how our emotions support connection and self-worth.


    I am experienced in treating mood disorders (such as Depression), anxiety-based disorders (such as Specific Phobias, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders (such as OCD and Hoarding Disorder). In my time at the Black Dog Institute, I also gained experience in working collaboratively with psychiatrists, general practitioners and other health professionals to care for people experiencing Bipolar Disorders I & II, Schizoaffective Disorder, addiction and complex trauma.

    I mostly work with adults, but I am happy to discuss working with children experiencing OCD.

    Dr Peter Baldwin on how he helps clients Dr Peter Baldwin on OCD
    Some of the initial anxieties new clients face are due to the lack of understanding of how the brain works – the mind, thoughts, emotions and feelings. Peter helps them understand this and use that knowledge to work with them.

    Clients don’t come saying they have OCD, but instead, they talk about their concerns regarding the type of thoughts – intrusive thoughts – that they have, and that, according to Peter Baldwin, is one of the indicators of OCD.
