Hello, I'm Katarina Perak - Registered Psychologist & Clinical Psychology Registrar
I am a Clinical Psychology Registrar and Registered Psychologist who specializes in helping children and teenagers. I create a welcoming atmosphere where your child can freely express their emotions and thoughts.
Collaborative, authentic, and empowering therapy is what I believe in, and I am committed to helping your child achieve their objectives, manage difficult emotions, and cultivate their strengths and values.
My experience and expertise
My passion lies in assisting children, adolescents, and their families to lead secure, connected, and meaningful lives. My expertise comes from working with various young people in private practice and community mental health, including those with attachment concerns, emotional regulation issues, social and behavioural difficulties, trauma, anxiety, and depression.
I am mindful that seeking therapy can be an intimidating process, particularly for young people. My goal is to ensure that your child feels secure, encouraged, and heard as they embark on their therapeutic journey. Additionally, I understand that parents may have concerns about their child's mental health and well-being. I believe in keeping parents well-informed and engaged throughout the therapy process to ensure that we all share the same goals.
At the heart of my practice is the conviction that every child and adolescent has the potential to thrive and lead a rewarding life. Therapy is a powerful tool to help young people realize their potential, and I am devoted to supporting your child's journey towards healing, growth, and overall well-being.
