Claudia Giles | Psychologist

I enjoy working with young people (13+) and adults alike, using a thoughtful and flexible approach built from psychological interventions including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy. In addition, I draw from family therapies and parent training to offer more systemic interventions. I have an appreciation for the roles of culture, religion, sexuality and gender in therapy, welcoming clients from diverse backgrounds.  Above all, I value offering a compassionate space for clients to have their authentic self seen and heard.
I have special interests in helping clients and families move through challenges such as:
  • Relationship difficulties, including parent/child and co-parenting concerns
  • Grief/loss and adjustment
  • Acute and post-traumatic stress
  • Personality-related difficulties such as perfectionism and identity instability
  • Generalised anxiety, social anxiety, illness anxiety, separation anxiety, and panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Adolescent issues
I am currently completing my registrar program in Clinical Psychology, which is a qualification over and above standard psychology registration.
