Andrew Smith

Andrew is a provisionally registered psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. He is a student member of the Australian Psychological Society and the Australian Psychological Society College of Clinical Psychologists. He is at the final stages of his Master of Clinical Psychology degree and is soon to gain full registration.

Andrew offers psychological counselling at a reduced rate. He primarily uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) techniques (an evidence-based assessment, diagnostic and treatment approach with strong research support) to assist individuals to develop increased insight into why they think, feel and behave in the manner that they do. He works as a team with his clients and assists his clients to learn practical psychological strategies in line with their goals in order to enhance their problem-solving ability. Andrew places great importance on developing an authentic relationship with his clients. He strives to ensure that this relationship is characterised by warmth, empathy, and respect.

Andrew has experience working therapeutically with the general public at both community clinic and in hospital settings. Andrew has experience assisting many individuals with difficult life circumstances and mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety, worry, stress, insomnia, trauma, adjustment to major life changes). Andrew’s soon to be completed Master’s thesis explores the patterns of thinking that contribute to feelings of depression and anxiety.
