Cecile Grant, Psychologist
I am a registered psychologist who has worked for 35 years across private and government sectors in various clinical, forensic and organisational roles.
As a result of this experience, I am able to assist individual clients - adolescents, adults, and elderly - in the following areas:
- Mood disorders, including anxiety, stress, depression, adjustment issues;
- Mental health and dual diagnosis (intellectual disability, substance dependency, criminal offending)
- Substance dependency and other addictions;
- Anger management;
- Personal issues, including building confidence, self-esteem, assertiveness;
- Grief and loss;
- Acute stress reaction and post-traumatic stress disorder; and
- Rehabilitation from accidents, and work anxiety and depression.
I am also experienced in working with people with autism, intellectual and cognitive impairment presenting with complex social problems and challenging behaviours.
My current interest is in developmental neurobiology and understanding the impact that early-life stressors, such as disrupted attachment, abuse and neglect, can have on the brain's structure and function.
As a clinician, my therapeutic approach combines evidence based frameworks, together with a healthy dose of common sense, while my aim is to empower my clients to face adversity and develop resilience, believing in their own ability to cope and achieve positive life outcomes.
