Georgina Farrell – Psychologist
As a mother of three young boys herself, Georgina has experienced first-hand many of the challenges that present in the transition to parenthood. She brings a kind and compassionate approach to working with her clients. She tailors her approach to meet the unique needs of each family while considering the issues that may have presented during conception, pregnancy, birth and in the postnatal period.
Georgina gained full registration to practice as a psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia in 2006. Most recently she has specialised in the perinatal field. She accepts referrals from GPs, obstetricians, psychiatrists and individuals. She is experienced in the use of a variety of therapies including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, mindfulness-based interventions and relationship-based approaches to treating perinatal mood disorders.
