Dr Katie Trickey
MAPS, FCCLP, D Clin Psych (UK), MA (Cambridge), BSc
I am a Clinical Psychologist with 14 years’ experience helping adults with a wide range of mental health difficulties. After working for 10 years in psychology services in London, I emigrated to Brisbane in 2014, where I have worked in PTSD research, inpatient services and private practice.
I have a particular interest and experience in the assessment and treatment of PTSD, and have worked with armed forces personnel, first responders, survivors of rape and sexual assault, those suffering domestic violence, refugees and victims of torture. I also have a special interest in supporting people who are living with changed health circumstances, such as cancer diagnosis, chronic fatigue, and mid-life or later life changes.
I use evidence-based therapies: including cognitive-behavioural therapy, compassion-focused therapy, schema therapy and trauma-focused CBT. I am currently working towards accreditation in EMDR and as a schema therapist. I work in a collaborative way with my clients, learning from their wealth of knowledge about themselves, and combining that with my clinical knowledge to help them. I am very optimistic about people’s ability to change but I never forget that therapy is hard, and that people who come to therapy are courageous.
Hours: Monday to Friday, by appointment only.
