PROFILE - DR EMMA LOGAN
I am an endorsed Counselling Psychologist who provides counselling and psychotherapy to adolescents, adults, couples, and families in private practice. I have experience working across the lifespan, providing services and supports in schools, community mental health, and residential aged care. My approach is client-centred and seeks to offer a respectful, safe, and non-judgemental space for clients to explore their difficulties, adopt positive coping strategies, find meaning, and enhance their psychological wellbeing.
In 2017, I completed a PhD in the area of disenfranchised grief and social support. As such, I have a particular interest in the importance of relational attachment in people’s lives and give focus to how individuals can internalise important relationships, develop resilience in the face of life-changing events, and learn to live with significant losses. I see a range of client presentations including life adjustments, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and both historical and recent trauma.
My approach is integrative and places primary focus on the therapeutic alliance as a confidential and safe space for healing and growth. Treatment modalities I draw upon include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Schema Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Existential Therapy, Attachment-Informed Grief Therapy, and other evidence-based models. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
