Melissa Kent

I am a psychologist with over 13 years experience working with adults, adolescents, children and families. I currently work in both private practice and in a private psychiatric hospital.

My areas of special interest include substance use and addiction, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and helping people manage life stage transitions, such as transition to parenthood, adulthood, late adulthood. I use a number of approaches in my work, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness-based approaches, to name a few. I bring to all approaches my signature values of warmth, expertise, understanding and acceptance.

I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and the Society for the Study of Addiction (SSA).

I am a mum of two children and a keen bike rider.
