Sian has experience working in the Department of Education, the private sector and also currently works part-time at the Tasmanian Autism Diagnostic Service, where she conducts comprehensive autism assessments. She has a passion for working with young people, including children as young as 2 years of age, adolescents and young adults.
Sian has a keen focus on working with a number of presentations, including anxiety, stress, depression and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as well as working with young people currently studying at any level, be it primary, secondary or tertiary education. Sian provides evidence-based psychological interventions such as cognitive-behavioural therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy, and is currently undertaking further training in autism-related therapies. She can also conduct a range of psychometric assessments, including cognitive, achievement, adaptive behaviour and memory assessments. Sian aims to provide a warm and open environment for young people, in order to build rapport and offer a comfortable setting for them to open up about a range of concerns and thereby gain the most from the process of psychotherapy.
