Dr Jacinta Thomson completed her Masters in Clinical Psychology and PhD at the University of New South Wales and has since gained extensive experience working across a range of public and private health settings, including specialised treatment programs for eating disorders and in a cancer care setting. Jacinta enjoys working with anxiety and mood disorders, acute and chronic health conditions, eating disorders, and issues associated with stress, anger, communication, and low self-esteem. She strongly believes that everyone deserves to feel like they are flourishing.
Jacinta works to make her clients feel at ease with her warm, non-judgmental, and professional manner. She appreciates that major life crises and health challenges can be painful and disruptive, and often leave people feeling disconnected and lacking direction. Jacinta assists her clients to adjust to new life circumstances, to develop a balanced lifestyle and to create new habits and reconnect with what is most important to them, by using evidence-based strategies. Jacinta has strong skills in communication, having had experience as a University lecturer, as a supervisor to other mental health professionals and presenting her research for international audiences.
