Marie Carmody

Marie is a registered psychologist and clinical psychology registrar who works with adults across a range of clinical and non-clinical health issues.  She works as an integrative psychotherapist and draw upon a teaching and coaching (CBT & solutions-focused therapies) background that enhances the wide range of treatment options that she provides. Whether you have challenges at work or school, in your relationships, or with your own self-image, together, Marie will help you to discover a new way for you to experience the world; and find a more comfortable way to living in your skin.

What most people might not realise is that almost all emotional pain is rooted in some form of distress that is carried in your mind and body.  As humans, we are all affected by experiences and whatever isn’t properly resolved is often masked by anxiety, anger, irritability, depression, feeling stuck or chronic relationship issues.  Therefore, Marie’s approach to therapy is highly collaborative and mutually respectful, helping clients engage in an integrative mind-body-focused healing experience, in order to build a more cohesive sense of self.  Marie is most proud of the connections she builds with each individual client and ensure respect, safety and acceptance.

Each person that comes through the door is an individual and so needs personalised techniques.  The most successful results occur when a therapist can draw from many modalities or “tools in their toolkit” so the right approach can be found that will best support each client and their unique needs.  Marie draws from a suite of evidence-based practices such as:

  • neurobiological informed trauma therapy (for PTSD and complex trauma)
  • internal family systems
  • conversational model
  • structural dissociation model
  • cognitive-behavioural based therapy (CBT),
  • dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT),
  • mindfulness-based therapies such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and
  • solution-focused therapy (SFT)
  • brief dynamic interpersonal psychotherapy (ITP)
  • mentalisation informed therapies
  • motivational interviewing (MI)
