Simon MaclachlanClinical Psychologist Perth

I am a clinical psychologist (registrar) and accredited psychotherapist with prior experience as a teacher and behavioural consultant, both privately and in the education system. I completed my postgraduate training in clinical psychology at Edith Cowan University, and hold additional training in counselling and psychotherapy.

I have experience in varied roles including hospital mental health settings, child protection and private practice. I work with children, adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds, and have a particular interest in the understanding and treatment of complex trauma across the lifespan.

I am passionate about utilising evidence-based therapies informed by current research, and tailor a variety of treatment approaches to support the individual needs of my clients. My treatment focus is on the “whole” person, and some of the approaches I utilise include: cognitive-behavioural therapies (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), trauma-focused approaches, mindfulness, and process-experiential and psychodynamic therapies.

My interpersonal style is relaxed, gentle and non-judgemental. I offer a safe, caring and empathic space for you to express what matters most to you. I validate your here-and-now experience, while collaborating with you to bring about positive change. Some of my treatment areas include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Trauma
  • Sleep problems
  • Interpersonal and relationship difficulties
  • Child and adolescent behavioural concerns
  • Boundary issues and assertiveness training
  • Self-esteem
