Caz Ziada | Psychologist | (she/her)

BExSc, Psych(Hons), MPsych (Clinical)

I am a registered Psychologist with a warm, gentle and collaborative therapeutic style. I aim to create a safe and non-judgemental space, where I can work together with my clients to develop a shared understanding of their experiences, and to support them to grow and achieve their goals.  

I have a keen interest in working with, and supporting individuals from, the LGBTIQAP+ community, and work with adolescents (12+) and adults, including those seeking support for:

Caz Ziada

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • LGBTIQAP+ support (such as exploring and understanding one’s gender or sexual identity, social transitions/relationship difficulties, and affirmation of gender and sexuality)
  • Low self-esteem, low motivation and/or procrastination
  • Perfectionism
  • Relationship difficulties
  • School issues/bullying/study skills
  • Social anxiety and agoraphobia
  • Communication and assertiveness
  • Stress management and relaxation
  • Work stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Adjustments and transitions

I have a flexible therapeutic approach that primarily draws on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques, and integrates other therapeutic approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Schema Therapy. I have worked in private and public mental health settings, including private practice, an adult Gender Clinic, a university counselling service, and a community youth mental health service. 

I’m currently completing the Clinical Psychology Registrar program, which involves additional training after registration as a psychologist.
