Dr. Robyn Brown – Consultant Psychologist

BA(Psychology & Forensic Science), BA(Hons), PhD (Clinical Psychology)

I am a Psychologist who adopts a warm and empathic approach, working collaboratively to achieve therapeutic goals. With a PhD in positive psychology, I believe in the benefit of focusing on strengths to assist the people I work with to create change and motivate them towards fulfilment in their lives. A good dose of humour doesn’t hurt either!

I have experience working with adolescents (13 +) and adults with a variety of difficulties, including:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Self-esteem issues and self-sabotage
  • Anxiety conditions (generalized anxiety, panic attacks, health anxiety, social anxiety)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Eating Disorders and those wanting to improve their relationship with food
  • Body image problems
  • Social phobia
  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
  • Addiction (Alcohol and drugs)
  • Grief and loss
  • Work stress

My preferred treatment modality is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), whereby I assist clients to modify their unhelpful thinking cycles leading to positive behavioural outcomes.

I am currently a Clinical Psychology Registrar undertaking advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.
