Justine is a warm, insightful and supportive therapist, who has worked for over twenty years as a Clinical Psychologist. She has gained specialised expertise in the perinatal period while working at Karitane Randwick and St John of God Burwood. In these settings, she has used individual and group treatments. As a Registered Circle of Security Parent Educator, she has also facilitated several such groups.
Justine recognises the importance of having appropriate support to navigate the journey to parenthood, including with those that have had difficulty with conception, pregnancy losses and birth trauma. She also has a particular interest in helping those experiencing perinatal anxiety. Her work is largely informed by attachment-based therapy and interpersonal neurobiology. In therapy, she draws on a wide range of evidence-based psychological approaches, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Therapies.
Justine also has relationships with a number of professionals working in the area. These include Perinatal Psychiatrists, Midwives, Parentcraft nurses, Child and Family nurses, and Perinatal mental health teams to ensure that where appropriate there is additional input and support.
