Our Psychologists

Robyn Winchester

Robyn is a Clinical Psychologist experienced in treating children, adolescents, adults, and families. She has worked in government and non-government sectors including Youth Justice, Youth Detention, adolescent and adult inpatient mental health services, dementia services, and private practice. Robyn is passionate about helping her clients regain their sense of purpose and has seen happiness and confidence increase as people experience renewed fulfillment.

Working from a positive psychology perspective, Robyn believes that when individuals connect with their true passions and engage in activities which bring them joy their self-awareness, motivation, and zest for life begin to re-surface. She also believes that gaining an understanding of cognitive and physiological processes gives clients a greater sense of control over their lives, not only in relation to their thoughts, emotions and behaviours but also over their physical responses to life stressors. 

Robyn gained her Bachelor of Psychology with Honors from the University of Newcastle, followed by a Master of Criminology and a Master of Clinical Psychology at Bond University in Queensland. She then undertook a two-year supervised Registrar program to gain endorsement as a Clinical Psychologist. Robyn is fully registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and holds membership of the Australian Psychological Society (MAPS).
