I’m Jenna, a Clinical Psychologist, who is endorsed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, and a member of the Australian Psychological Society. I work in the public sector and provide private practice support through Redman Gall Psychologists at the Robina Gold Coast practice.
I believe that gaining a holistic understanding of one’s context is key to facilitating change. I take time to understand one’s past journey and current values to support them in building clear goals for their future. Once the goals have been developed, I use the clients’ strengths to guide evidence-based practice to achieve their goals and facilitate long-term change.
Whilst I have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I use a range of other modalities based on the client’s needs and best fit. I am accredited in group and individual Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and use a range of strategies from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT). I am also trained in various extensions in these therapeutic approaches, such as CBT-E (eating disorders), TF-CBT (trauma-focused) and Trauma-Focused ACT.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I work with a range of broader difficulties such as low mood, anxiety, stress, grief, and general dysregulation. In addition to this, I work with:
– Mood disorders (including depression and bipolar)
– Anxiety and related disorders
– Eating Disorders
– Trauma and complex-trauma
– Self-harm and suicide
– Family difficulties
– Difficulties around identity
– Emotion dysregulation (difficulty managing or regulating emotions)
– Anger management
– Low self-esteem
– Bipolar Disorder
– Adolescent behavioural difficulties
– Body Dysmorphia
