Jessica Harrison | Clinical Registrar

Jess is a Clinical Psychology Registrar with a keen interest and passion for working with children, young people, and their families to help build resilience and overall wellbeing, and has experience doing so in private, public, and school settings. She has experience working with a wide variety of presentations, including anxiety, depression, stress, anger, childhood behavioural problems, social and relationship difficulties, and neurodevelopmental differences (such as ADHD and Autism).

Jess believes in a holistic approach to working with children and young people, and aims to involve parents, family members, school staff, and any other relevant people to support the client in all aspects of their life. Jess utilises a variety of therapeutic techniques but believes that the cornerstone to effective therapy is a strong relationship and works hard to achieve this between herself and her clients.

Jess is also particularly interested in psychoeducational assessments, and has the training and ability to conduct a range of comprehensive assessments of ADHD, ASD, Intellectual Disability, and Specific Learning Disorder.
