Dr Tara Hickey

Clinical Psychologist

B.A (Hons), M.A, DClinPsych, MBSR/MSC Teacher.

I work with youth and adults who are experiencing short or long-term difficulties and feel they would benefit from support. This can range from stress in daily life to problems with anxiety, depression, trauma or psychosis. It can involve specific life events such as family/work difficulties, relationship break-up, grief or other difficult transitions in life.

I specialise in using Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) since travelling to Europe several years ago to train with its founder, Professor Paul Gilbert, OBE. I continue to receive supervision from Prof. Gilbert on a regular basis. CFT focuses on building an inner capacity to respond more wisely and kindly to life’s difficulties. I am also trained in cognitive behavioural therapy and continue to use this approach, as needed.

In addition, I am a Mindfulness Teacher and have undertaken training in Australia (Monash University and Openground), as well as in the United States. I have trained with Dr Kristin Neff and Dr Christopher Germer, two of the world’s leading teachers in the field of mindfulness and self-compassion. I am a graduate of the Mindful Self-Compassion teacher training (Earthrise, Petaluma, California). I am the contact person in Victoria for Compassionate Mind Australia.

I see clients who have:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Psychosis
