Lynette completed her postgraduate training in clinical psychology in Perth, Western Australia. She is registered with the Australia Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and has wide experience working with children, adolescents and adults, in both public and private settings in Australia and Singapore.
Prior to joining The Psychology Practice, she spent six years practising as a Senior Clinical Psychologist at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH), providing psychotherapy and conducting assessments with individuals across all age groups. She was part of the Mood and Anxiety Clinic, a multidisciplinary team which specialises in the treatment of mood disorders, as well as the Adult Neurodevelopmental Service (ANDS), the first service in Singapore that provides mental health services for Adults with Intellectual Disability and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder. Apart from psychotherapy services, she was actively involved in providing consultations and trainings on mental health issues with schools and social welfare agencies. She has also provided clinical supervision for junior psychologists.
Lynette’s specialist areas include working with individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, attachment and interpersonal issues, as well as adjustment difficulties. She offers individualised therapy for clients, integrating different therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Schema Therapy. As a registered facilitator of the Circle of Security program, she conducts individual and group psychotherapy for parents looking to foster secure relationships with their children. She also draws upon attachment based approaches in her practice to help adult clients better understand their attachment styles and improve on their relationships with their loved ones.
Recognising the need to feel safe in therapy, she is committed to creating a supportive and non-judgmental space for clients to freely share their experiences and receive the support they need to navigate their way through difficult times. Her nurturing capacities extend to her Associate Lecturer position with Murdoch University and University of Northumbria, where she teaches into the diploma psychology programme.
When not conducting therapy, Ms Lynette is a musical theatre enthusiast, a loving wife, and a proud bunny parent of a very anxious netherland dwarf.
