Jennifer Leahy

Clinical Psychologist

I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years’ experience. I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) at the University of New England, Armidale, and Master of Clinical Psychology at the Australian National University, Canberra.

I have been working in private practice since 2007 and prior to that I worked in the public mental health system.

I have training and expertise in a number of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

I have expertise treating a wide range of presenting problems and have a particular interest in helping people with anxiety disorders (panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety), and trauma related issues.
