Susanne is experienced in working with children and adults with ADHD, depression and anxiety, and sleep disorders. She has a specific interest in Neurofeedback and Mindfulness as tools to complement Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Susanne has more than 20 years’ experience as a Psychologist and has worked in this field in different cultural settings, in Europe, Asia and Australia. In previous roles she has worked in research and as a lecturer at University, not-for-profits, as well as in private clinical practice.

She is open-minded and non-judgmental and believes that therapy is a collaborative approach between her clients and herself. Susanne is also trained in Systemic Therapy and knows that for positive change to happen it is best practice to work from a team approach. Susanne enjoys working with family members, and other health and educational professionals in order to offer an integrative and holistic intervention.

When it comes to therapy delivery, Susanne believes it is best practice to offer a multi-modal approach to be better able to address each client’s individual needs and also integrates Mindfulness techniques into her work.

In recent years Susanne has dedicated time to professional development and offers evidence-based, device-assisted neuromodulation techniques such as Neurofeedback as an additional tool to complement Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Susanne understands the importance of sleep as a major contributing factor in mental health and has completed the Practice Certificate in Sleep Psychology offered by the Australian Psychological Society (APS).

She is also trained to administer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive therapy for clients suffering Depression, and combines this with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
