Siobhan Cairney

Prior to completing a five-year sequence of accredited tertiary study comprising coursework and practical placements, Siobhan worked with young people in residential care with Marist Youth Services between May 2007-October 2013, with the FaCS helpline between October 2013-August 2015 and has been employed as a domestic violence Counsellor within Family & Community Services since August 2015.

Siobhan is currently completing a 1-year supervised practice internship at Associated Psychology Practice in order to gain full registration as a Psychologist. As part of this process, Siobhan participates in weekly clinical supervision with a Senior Psychologist and regularly attends professional development sessions.

Siobhan is available to provide individual treatment to children (age 5 plus), adolescents and adults for a range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, social skills development and interpersonal relationship issues on a Thursday and Friday between 10am to 5pm.

As a Provisional Psychologist, Siobhan is not eligible to provide services under Medicare. However, there are many potential benefits to patients who see a provisional Psychologist including up to date knowledge of research and best practice and reduced session fees as outlined below:

· Reduced session fee of $65 (no rebate available) is significantly less than the out of pocket cost of seeing a fully registered Psychologist under a care plan

· Concession rate of $50 per session (no rebate available) for pensioners or current health care card holders who schedule appointments during school hours (concession rate only available to patients seeing provisional psychologist).

Appointments can be made with Siobhan by calling 4722-3137 between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday or via our online booking service which can be accessed via the link in the top right corner of our website.
