Ms. Melissa Ford, BPsych (Hons), M Psych (Ed & Dev)

About Me

I am a friendly and empathic person and professional who is passionate about the role of attachment both within relationships with others and relationship with the self. I endeavour to provide a safe place for people to understand and know themselves with a sense of compassion and self-comfort. In doing so, we can make space to resolve the traumas, wounds or unmet needs that often underlie a range of mental health issues. This gives us a deeper sense of peace, calm and meaning in life.

Education & Experience

I have 10+ years experience working as a Psychologist with a range of populations including adults, teenagers, parents, families and couples.
