Yashi sees children, adolescents and adults. Subiaco and O'Connor
My passion is to assist individuals through the various challenges and difficulties we may face in life, by helping them develop the necessary skills towards healing, rebuilding and living balanced and meaningful lives.
I enjoy working across the lifespan with children, adolescents and adults presenting with a range of mental health difficulties. I particularly enjoy supporting individuals presenting with anxiety (generalised anxiety, panic, social anxiety), mood disorders, insomnia, adjustment difficulties, stress, relationship difficulties and low self-esteem. When working with children, I like to take a systemic approach to assist each child and their family with concerns relating to challenging behaviours, school avoidance, and developmental disabilities. I place great importance in creating a warm and safe therapeutic space, working closely with my clients in a compassionate, non-judgemental and empathetic manner.
I have worked across inpatient psychiatry, rural community and private practice settings. My therapeutic approach is focussed on working closely and collaboratively with my clients, providing individualized evidence-based interventions guided by each person's needs. I am trained in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), schema therapy, mindfulness and attachment focussed family interventions.
I have completed a Master of Applied Psychology (Clinical Psychology) from Murdoch University, and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) from Malaysia. I speak fluent Tamil and I am able to offer consultations in Tamil as well as English.
