She encourages clients to develop a greater sense of self and a deeper understanding of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. She is a registered Psychologist with a B.A (Psych.), Grad. Dip. Ed. Psych., M(Couns.) and is a member of the Australian Psychological Society. Lian has experience working with young people and adults presenting with a wide variety of issues in public and private settings.
Working collaboratively with clients, Lian strives to strengthen their ability to increase self-awareness to make choices that enhance their everyday well-being, psychological growth and connectedness to who and what really matters. She holds a belief in the human potential to grow on conscious and Soul/transpersonal levels.
Lian works with evidence based psychological approaches such as Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy which are implemented according to a client’s needs, strengths and goals for therapy. She also has a special interest in integrating psychology, neurology and contemplative practices to support clients work towards Whole-Self balance and wellness.
Complementing the above approaches, Lian utilises a personal and spiritual educational approach known as the Siramati Personal Growth Process to help a client work towards intended goals. This process develops self-awareness of how we are engaging in Life and uses guided visualisations and other techniques to enhance clients’ health and well-being.
