Birgit O’Sheedy, accredited Clinical Psychologist with AHPRA and APS, has international experience in successfully treating hundreds of clients with ongoing life challenges. Many people wonder what the difference between a clinical psychologist and a general psychologist is. Both have the same foundation of learning, however the clinical psychologist has undergone extra post-graduate training focusing on treatment and diagnostics, and is thus more specialised.

Birgit works from a strength-based solutions-focused approach, and the therapeutic relationship is set in a foundation of trust and mutual respect.

She has studied and worked in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, in addition to Australia.
