Psychologist, Clinical Psychology Registrar
BPsych (Hons), MClinPsych
Lily is a registered psychologist with a Bachelor of Psychology Honours and postgraduate qualifications in Masters of Clinical Psychology. Lily’s postgraduate research investigated the impact of exposure to idealised media images emphasising thinness on body image and exercise behaviour.
Lily aims to work with clients to promote positive body image as well as improved health and wellbeing practices. Aware that the media and society are saturated with unobtainable standards of beauty and a plethora of conflicting ‘health-related’ information, Lily is passionate about teaching clients what healthy living entails; challenging misconceptions and promoting healthy practices with food and exercise. She is extremely passionate about working within a ‘Health at Every Size™ framework to support individuals to break away from the diet culture’ and the pursuit of unobtainable standards of beauty. Lily is particularly passionate about working with adolescents and promoting early intervention through media literacy and body-acceptance training.
Lily has an engaging and passionate approach, consistently endeavouring to provide clients with non-judgemental, open and empathic support. Her therapeutic approach is evidence-based and client-centred, having received specialist training in Maudsley Family Based Therapy (FBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E) as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Schema Therapy.
Lily practices full-time from our Brisbane clinic
