Jo New

Clinical Psychologist / Clinical Manager
Psychology BSc (Hons); Master of Psychology (Clinical)

As a clinical psychologist with a background in nursing, my interest in mental health and physical well-being has developed through hospital, community and clinic-based work. I initially trained and worked as a Registered Nurse in London, UK, later completing a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Honours) and moving into counselling. After emigrating to Australia, I completed a Master’s Degree in Psychology (Clinical) and, since settling in Perth, I have worked as a clinician in a variety of government and non-government services, including the Drug and Alcohol Office (the now Mental Health Commission), the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and Headspace, before joining the team at Perth Psychological Services.

I work mainly with teens and adults on a range of issues including anxiety, worry and stress, low self-esteem, depression, grief, trauma, gender identity, and drug and alcohol misuse. I am particularly passionate about working with young people and supporting them to cope with the many challenges presented by today’s busy, and often overwhelming, society. In your initial session I will focus on learning about what has bought you here, and on what you are hoping to gain from therapy. In subsequent sessions, I will draw from a range of evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solution focussed therapy, motivational work and mindfulness, to help you cope with unpleasant thoughts and feelings, and to change behaviour patterns that may contribute to maintaining your symptoms.

 I look forward to working with you at Perth Psychological Services; I’m available at our Mt Hawthorn clinics.
