( AHPRA, APS )
Stefan is an AHPRA registered Clinical Psychologist. He is also a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and the APS Clinical College.
Stefan’s academic qualifications include a Bachelor of Science (Major in Biochemistry), Graduate Diploma in Psychology, Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology, and Master of Psychology (Clinical). He has completed extensive training in psychometric assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing management of adolescents and adults. Stefan has worked in private practice, outpatient treatment, community outreach, and acute inpatient hospital care.
Stefan’s perspective is that there are many reasons that can lead to a person to reach out for help. People can feel stuck, hopeless, and like there is something wrong with them. Sometimes we find ourselves doing things that are unhelpful or even harmful to us or others. There are situations and relationships that are difficult or past trauma that has really affected us. And sometimes, it can just feel like there is something missing.
Whatever the issue, individuals want a therapist who will be there for them, carefully listen and understand, be empathic, and help them solve their problems so that they reach their destination and achieve their goals. As a Clinical Psychologist, Stefan is an empathic and dedicated practitioner who seeks to provide a safe, non-judgemental, and private environment in which you can feel free to speak about difficult and personal issues. Sessions will be tailored to your needs and completed at a pace that is right for you and can include anything from problem-solving and scientifically validated strategies to just feeling heard and getting some things off your chest.
