Brad completed his Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Newcastle in 2013 prior moving to Melbourne, where he completed his Internship to register as a Psychologist. As a psychologist, Brad’s areas of interest include anxiety disorders, mood disorders, adjustment and life difficulties, stress, interpersonal and relationship difficulties as well as difficulties with emotions. Bradley has experience providing psychological support to people from diverse communities and backgrounds, and is particularly interested in providing awareness and support to the LGBTIQA+ community. Brad has experience working with neurodiverse clients and uses assessment tools including the Weschler suite of assessments, in addition to diagnostic assessments for Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, to formulate, diagnose and inform his treatment with clients.

Prior to joining the The Victorian Psychology Clinic, Brad worked extensively with people living with a disability and their families providing support and therapy from a holistic systemic approach. Brad has also worked in other private practice clinics, providing support to members of the community. Bradley uses a blend of psychological evidence- based modalities including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) as well as Person Centred Approaches.

In the therapy space, Brad aims to create a calm, safe place, where clients feel like they are just having a casual conversation. He values the therapeutic relationship with his clients and aims to create a trusting environment so problem solving can ensue. Brad approaches therapy from the stance that we don’t heal unless we feel and as such, avoiding the ‘uncomfortable feelings’ doesn’t help us in the long run. Becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable and allowing ourselves to feel (experience) the things we are avoiding, allows us to build resilience (heal) towards it. Brad believes that nothing is too hard or too big, noting that it’s about tackling the little parts to make the big thing less big and more conquerable.
