I’m Josh, a provisional psychologist, very happily undertaking my internship at 3P. I have previous experience providing counselling for children and young adults and also worked in disability support for many years. I completed a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) at Deakin University and a Graduate Diploma of Psychology (Advanced) at Monash University.
I love working with all young people, but I am especially interested in supporting Autistic and ADHD kids to support concerns around anxiety, self-esteem and relationships. I will also be conducting assessments and working with some local schools to support their students. I love to travel, play the guitar and talk about whatever topic currently has my interest!
I am a registered psychologist based at the Rye cottage and very excited about working with the team at 3P to assist and support the wellbeing of young people in my community. I come from a background in secondary school teaching and youth work and I bring a wealth of experience in helping young people overcome barriers and achieve great outcomes. I followed my dream and completed a Graduate Diploma of Psychology (Hons.) in recent years; I believe that if we dream big and dig deep, we can become whoever we want to be in life. I love camping and having adventures together. I look forward to meeting you at 3P.
I am a provisional psychologist at 3P. I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at Monash University.

I love going on walks with my puppy, as well as learning about dinosaurs … did you know T-Rexes can swim?!”

I am passionate about supporting people through difficult times with a therapeutic approach that is person-centred, focussed by your goals and evidence-based.

I utilise my training and knowledge of psychological theory, research, and therapeutic practice to help them achieving these goals. I am thoughtful, warm, respectful, and non-judgemental. I understand and respect the courage it takes to reach out for assistance and I aim to create a safe space to share, make sense of things and manage difficult experiences.
