Leanne Heffernan

Psychologist, Brisbane Minds Approved Provider

Graduated from Macquarie University Masters of Applied Psychology in 1995. Since that time
have worked in a number of different areas of psychology however the last 8 years in private
practice focussing upon assisting people struggling with depression, anxiety and other personal
issues. I have attended a large amount of professional development activities throughout
Australia and overseas in order to receive and maintain up-to-date professional skills in order to
benefit the people I see.
Approach to Therapy:
My clinical experience and training is extensive and diverse, aliowing me to individualiy tailor
treatment plans to clients. I am trained in Cognitve Behavioural Therapy principles and
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and largely draw upon strategies from both these areas,
depending upon client needs. I also draw heavily upon strategies from Interpersonal Therapy
where needed to enhance therapeutic outcomes. I very much believe in working with clients in
a coliaborative manner to establish treatment plans that can empower clients to make the
changes they feel are needed in order to live a rich, valuable and meaningful life.
