Paul JefferyClinical Psychologist & Director Perth

Hello, I completed my training in Clinical Psychology at the University of Western Australia in 1999, and have worked as a Clinical Psychologist in public mental health services and in private practice for the past 21 years. My principal area of practice has been with children, adolescents and families, however I have also worked with adults after having the opportunity to develop my clinical practice in Oxford, UK from 2002-2004.

I’ve also been providing consultation in performance psychology to the WA Institute of Sport for the swimming and track and field programs since 2017.

I have an active interest in the provision of clinical supervision and over time have provided teaching, training and supervision to students from Curtin University, University of Western Australia and to the WA Department of Health Psychiatry training program.

My clinical practice puts emphasis on the formation of a safe, ethical therapeutic relationship to facilitate collaborative and goal-directed therapy. My practice is informed most heavily by Cognitive Behaviour Therapy where it is indicated, as well as other models and approaches such as Interpersonal Therapy , Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Attachment and Family Systems models.

Concerns I work regularly with include:

Children and Teenagers

  • Anxiety and mood difficulties
  • Peer relationships / social skills difficulties
  • Behavioural problems, ADHD and family conflict
  • School reluctance / school refusal
  • Sleep problems
  • Psychology of sport performance.

Adults

  • Anxiety and mood difficulties
  • Relationship issues
  • Sleep problems
  • Psychology of sport performance
  • Trauma (including complex PTSD) and dissociative conditions.
