MS JEANETTE LIAW


Jeanette is a registered psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia as supported by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. She has a Masters in Educational and Developmental Psychology from Monash University, Australia.

 

As part of her Masters placement in Australia, her clinical work involved various cognitive, academic and behavioural assessments in psychoeducational assessments, behavioural observations in schools, and interventions to address social-emotional issues in school-aged children. She also gained practical experience during her placement in a hospital setting. She worked with a multidisciplinary team of speech therapists and medical doctors in assessing children with autism spectrum disorder.

 

Jeanette has worked with children and teenagers requiring targeted support in developing emotional regulation, focus and attention, and academic skills. She has an interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and uses concepts from ACT, Prof. Tony Attwood, Michelle Garcia Winner, and various other strategies in her therapeutic interventions. She has also received training in Social Thinking approaches and co-facilitated social group programs for school-aged children.

She believes in assessing holistically for the different learner to receive relevant support strategies and in providing her best to support individuals with learning differences and their families. She sees value and importance in building up the family unit as a cohesive emotional unit and seeks to understand the perspectives of both parents and children.  Jeanette has a passion for providing support to individuals with mental health challenges. She hopes to be able to play a role in helping them lead a life that is meaningful to them and improve their overall wellbeing.
