Jacqueline is a Registered Psychologist under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and a member of the Australian Psychological Society (MAPS). She completed her professional training in educational psychology at The University of Melbourne. Her passion lies in working with neurodiverse children and adolescents, including those with Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD), Autistic Individuals, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and intellectual disabilities (ID).
She offers a range of services, including comprehensive psychoeducational assessments, individual therapy, social skills groups, and consultations with parents and teachers. Drawing from her extensive experience working with international school students from diverse cultural backgrounds in Hong Kong, Jacqueline has developed strong cultural awareness and sensitivity that informs her practice. Recognizing the importance of a holistic approach, she also places great emphasis on adopting a family systemic perspective. Through engaging family members and fostering collaboration, she strives to facilitate the achievement of common goals and promote the overall well-being of the family unit. Jacqueline is fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin (Putonghua), enabling her to effectively conduct sessions for bilingual Chinese families.
As a Recognised Facilitator for Lego®-Based Therapy, Jacqueline has successfully utilized this approach to assist children in learning social skills and interacting with peers through their shared interest in brick play. Lego®-Based Therapy is particularly effective for autistic children or those with speech delays, as it encourages the generalization of skills into their daily environments proactively.
Jacqueline would love to incorporate animals into her therapy sessions soon. It is her pleasure to work alongside her inspiring and knowledgeable colleagues at Mullum Road Clinic!
