Leisa a Clinical Psychologist with a Bachelor of Science (Psychology) and Masters in Psychology (Clinical) from UNSW. She has done further training in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), a type of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) which she has found extremely useful, both personally and professionally. Her post graduate training has also been in Bowen Family Systems Theory which explores couple relationships, parent child interactions, and most importantly, looking at how all of these individual relationships are part of a much bigger whole.
She is currently undertaking further postgraduate study at the University of Sydney in Coaching and Positive Psychology. My thesis is on the topic of Hope – what is it that makes some of us, in the midst of chaos, able to look to the future with hope whereas others of us struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel?
