Desné Doman, Registered psychologist
I have been working with individuals just like yourself.
I know what it is like to not feel happy or not feel good about yourself. As a therapist, I am here to help you get your inner peace back so that you can enjoy being who you are and build relationships that your heart yearns for.
I see individuals and couples at the Centre for Clinical Therapy
119 Willoughby Rd, Crows Nest
Stairs (1 flight) accessible.
How I work
People who work with me say that I’m down-to-Earth, and they like being able to understand what we are doing and how it’s going to improve their life.
I work predominantly from a cognitive-behavioural (CBT) framework, but integrate a number of other evidence-based modalities: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Schema-focused Cognitive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Brainspotting. Since each client is unique, treatment methods are jointly chosen to fit your needs and strengths. As a long term meditator, I use a mindfulness-informed approach to therapy.
P.S. For those who care about it—–here are my credentials. I am a licensed psychologist and hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Western Sydney and a Bachelor of Science degree with honours in psychology from Macquarie University. I also have a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Sydney.
I am fully registered with the Psychology Board of Australia, Workcover and is a member of the Australian Psychological Society.
