Garth Newman

Clinical Psychologist

I am a registered clinical psychologist, practicing in Brackenfell. I offer individual, couple’s/marital, and family therapy – for children, adolescents, and adults. Areas of special interest include:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar Mood disorder
  • Anxiety (e.g. social anxiety, general anxiety, phobias)
  • Bereavement, loss, separation
  • Trauma (incl PTSD)
  • Family conflict, abuse, personal growth, psychometric assessment (e.g. intelligence testing, neuropsychological assessment, career assessment)

Orientation and approach

I use both psychodynamic (insight-oriented) and structured (cognitive-behaviour therapy) modalities to guide therapeutic work with my clients. I believe that therapy is an important journey, upon which both client and therapist embark. For this reason, I believe in thorough assessment, forming a strong working alliance with my clients, and adjusting therapeutic input to meet client needs.
