Psych. Sc. (hons 2A)
Sydney has been a Coolangatta local for 2.5 years now and loves the coastal lifestyle. When she’s not in the office you will find her surfing at rainbow bay, in the dance studio where she practices ballet and jazz, or at the nearest local food markets with a strong flat white coffee in her hand.
After venturing from her home town of Noosa, Sydney graduated from the university of Queensland in 2016 with a bachelor of psychological science with honours.
Her research during the honours program explored the role of perfectionism and internalisation of media’s ideal image on female body satisfaction. Since then, Sydney has completed two years of training under the guidance of industry leading professionals; working with adults and children from all walks of life. Sydney has completed accreditation as an Auditory Training Program™ practitioner, and is soon to complete certification in EMDR and Biofeedback.
Her experience and interests are in the areas of: anxiety, depression, trauma, sensory processing disorder, autism, attention deficit, couples, attachment and adjustment difficulties, body image, disordered eating, anger, school and work-related issues.
Sydney uses a range of evidence-based techniques with her clients, incorporating advanced technology and methods of relaxation and self-regulation such as bio-feedback. Sydney is competent in recording Quantitative Electroencephalography and Event Related Potentials, psychometric assessments, and auditory processing evaluations.
