Veronica was registered as a provisional psychologist March 2020 with the Australian Health
Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and Psychology board of Australia. She is also a
student member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and a professional member of
the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapy Association (AZACATA).
Services that Veronica can offer include psychological counselling, cognitive, educational
and mental health assessments, diagnosis and treatments at a reduced rate.

Veronica’s counselling perspective is an integrative and client centred one that has a strong
focus on building an empathic, respectful and collaborative therapeutic relationship.
Veronica uses this relationship alongside humanistic, experiential and cognitive behavioural
perspectives to empower individuals to create their own decisions and building blocks for
positive change. In addition, Veronica’s approach also involves numerous modalities such as
storytelling, expressive arts, sand-tray, animal assisted and play based therapies as well as
talk therapy so as to meet the needs of each individual client. As a professional art therapist
since 2009 Veronica is looking to create a unique psychological approach to working with
the human experience.

Veronica is also a volunteer boxing coach and believes strongly in the ability of exercise and
movement to create positive shifts in mood and provide the motivation to transform painful
emotions. She also loves gardening and making art when she can.

Veronica is now keen to extend her training in Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), trauma
informed approaches, grief and bereavement and Schema Therapy. Veronica is also excited
to extend her Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) training later this year with her Kelpie named
Timber.
