Amy is the Director of Nest Psychology Brisbane, a Brisbane-based psychology practice that offers counselling and support to expecting and new parents.
Amy offers her clients the choice of coming to see her in her comfortable Toowong office or she will happily see clients in their homes. Parents are welcome to bring their baby to sessions.
Amy enjoys supporting parents and infants during the perinatal period (conception to 12 months post-birth). For her Master of Clinical Psychology thesis she developed a program to assist new parents to transition successfully to parenthood, with positive results. For the past 5 years, she has provided specialist psychological support to individuals and families in community centres in Melbourne and in Private Practice in Brisbane. Amy also co-wrote the content for Baby Steps, a free online program to enhance the well-being of new Mums and Dads.
Amy’s knowledge and experience are in attachment relationships, adjustment disorders, perinatal depression and anxiety (Mums and Dads), obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder and infant/toddler/child social, behavioural and emotional development. Amy is happy to see people who are struggling to adjust to parenthood as well as those who are unwell with a mental health diagnosis. Amy likes to use a solution-focused approach to help individuals and families to readily meet their goals. She uses various therapeutic approaches, including mindfulness, cognitive-behavioural therapy, narrative therapy and attachment focused therapy. She is open-minded, genuine and easy going and has worked with families from all over the world.
Amy is a Registered Circle of Security Parent Educator, and has facilitated the course to groups and to individuals. She also co-wrote and facilitated the “Parenting Your Pre-schooler” training program.
Amy is also a mother to three boys, which has provided her with just as much education and self-development as the 10 years of university study!
In her spare time, she likes to practice yoga and to travel.Contact Amy Kelly Now
