Dr. Jamie Lee
BA (Psychology) (Hons Class I), DPsych, MSPS, MSRP
Jamie is a Clinical Psychologist and has been working in the field of counselling and mental health for more than a decade. She provides psychotherapy and mental health assessments to adolescents and adults. In addition, she provides psycho-educational assessments for children and adults with learning difficulties. Having a breadth of experience conducting assessments for conditions such as ADHD, dyslexia, social communication difficulties and IQ assessments for school placements, Jamie adopts a holistic approach that not only provides in-depth understanding of their difficulties, but also focuses on the individual’s strengths and resources.
Jamie has trained and worked in hospitals and community-based organisations with individuals of all ages to address a range of issues such as mood and anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, chronic pain and illness, as well as post-traumatic stress. She uses evidence-based therapy modalities and draws on cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, and family systems theories. She has pursued further training in schema therapy, emotion-focused therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Having grown up around the children of family friends who have neurodevelopmental difficulties, Jamie has witnessed the resilience of caregivers and the importance of systems such as families, churches and schools that lend support to those with special needs. As such, Jamie strongly believes in focusing on the person rather than a diagnosis and draws on the individual’s strengths and support systems. She trusts in a healing process that is characterised by compassion for self and others.
Besides clinical work and assessments, Jamie enjoys teaching psychology subjects at the undergraduate level, providing research supervision to students and clinical supervision to other mental health professionals. In her spare time, she loves being in nature and is a proud owner of a lovebird and border collie, who keep her on her toes.
