Kate Ryan

M Psych (Ed&Dev) B Psych (Hons) MAPS

Kate is a fully registered psychologist with Honours and a Masters in Educational and Developmental Psychology.  She is a warm, compassionate and genuine practitioner.

Kate works with adolescents and adults and brings sincerity and curiosity to her work as a therapist. Her focus is on inclusivity and using warmth and humour to make you feel at ease. Kate sees people who need help with eating disorders, adjustment and personality disorders, ASD and ADHD, anxiety and panic, stress and depression, grief and loss, addiction, and PTSD. When working with body image issues and disordered eating, Kate is informed by a health at any size (HAES) approach.

Kate uses compassion-focussed therapy (CFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and schema mode therapy to help her clients create better lives and states of mind. She also draws from CBT-E (enhanced cognitive behaviour therapy) and family-based treatment (FBT).

Kate’s style of therapy is trauma-informed and attachment-focused. She helps you to understand yourself and your triggers and to engage actively in behaviour change.

In her spare time Kate can be found in nature with her beloved dogs, and baking delicious goodies in her kitchen.
