Assistant Supervisor – Only eligible to supervise with a fully accredited Principal or Co-supervisor


I am an Indigenous Clinical Psychologist, and a Senior Research Fellow within the Institute for Positive Psychology & Education (IPPE). My PhD research focused on using diary methodology (Ecological Momentary Assessment) to investigate the contextual influences of daily emotion regulation. My research interests include: psychotherapy processes (acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, emotion regulation), psychological interventions, determinants of well-being, statistics and psychometrics; and all of the above as applied to Indigenous health and well-being, and cross-cultural applications.
