Clare McInnerney | Psychologist

BPsychSc (Hons), MPsych (Educational & Developmental)

I enjoy assisting young people in managing life’s challenges, including those related to education, work, maintenance of healthy relationships, and taking care of mental health. I have experience helping people with a range of challenges from all walks of life and have worked in community services, educational, and general mental health settings. I strive to work collaboratively with my clients to understand their concerns, develop strategies to improve wellbeing, and achieve their therapy goals.

My areas of interest include:

  • Children and adolescents
  • Anxiety
  • Depression and low mood
  • Academic and cognitive difficulties (assessments available)
  • Self-esteem and body image concerns
  • Parenting difficulties (including challenging behaviour and emotional regulation difficulties)
  • Relationship difficulties
  • School issues including transitions, school refusal and bullying

I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming practitioner who offers a safe and welcoming space for all.

Over and above my existing qualifications, I am undergoing advanced training in paediatric and adolescent psychology, and am an Educational and Developmental Psychology Registrar.
