Dr Jessica Leigh Green
Clinical Psychologist
BA (Hons) DPsych (Clinical) MAPS CCLIN

Jess is a warm, friendly and approachable psychologist, with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, specialising in Child, Adolescent and Family Psychology from Monash University. She has over 11 years of experience working with infants, children, adolescents, parents and adults individually and as part of groups. Jess has worked at the Royal Children’s Hospital, the Austin Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, and in private practice.

Jess works collaboratively with her clients to establish a joint understanding of their difficulties, before establishing a plan for their work together which draws on a range of therapeutic approaches. Jess is passionate about providing high-quality evidence-based therapy that is tailored to individual values, including Christian faith beliefs, and incorporates preferences for more creative and movement or sensorimotor based approaches such as imagery, art, play and dance.

Jess has a particular interest in supporting parents during the challenging years of raising young children. Jess is a registered facilitator of the Circle of Security program and she loves encouraging parents to better understand and meet their child’s emotional and relational needs using the Circle of Security approach, which helps parents to “Delight In” and “Be With” their child while also exploring ways to be “Bigger, Stronger, Wiser and Kind”. Jess runs Circle of Security parenting groups, and is also able to teach these skills as part of individual sessions.
